BG sketch challenge and CCT

With this card today I have managed to combine 2 fab challenges....a gorgeous sketch for the Basic Grey Challenge and Valentine for Cute Card Thursday . I have never joined the BG challenge before, but since the purchase of quite a few yummy BG paper packs, I'm sure I will have no trouble taking part again!!...and it seems an age since I joined in with CCT, so it's so nice to be able to partake this week.

Here are the details
  • Image: hAngler and stAngler
  • Paper: BG Bittersweet and Coredinations CS
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Sentiment: from Hugs and Kisses at ATS
  • Flowers and brads from stash

And for all those who are patiently waiting........I don't know if I should really be showing this....don't want to ruin my street cred lol!!! is the model of Boudicca!!!!

For those who don't know this is for my DS homework, I made the first ever attempt!....(I used a whole 2kg of clay!!).....and Cameron painted it, I think he did a pretty good job for a 9 year old, especially as the running joke applied to him in our house is..............................'sport not art'!!!

Anywoo, thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day and stay warm, wherever you are
