Friday Sketchers

>> Friday, 25 February 2011

Hi everyone, I hope you have had a good week. This has been my first half term as a SAHM and its been hectic. We've had some lovely trips out and on Wedneday Thomas had his hearing test. His speech hasn't been progressing very well and they confirmed that there is some inflamation and fluid behind his ear drums. He has to have another test in 3 months time and if the fluid is still there they will refer us to EN&T and he will probably need grommets. Hopefully this is something we can get resolved as quickly as possible as I know he is getting frustrated because people don't always understand him.

Onto my card and I've used my favourite (and only) CC Designs image.

She is coloured with aqua pens and I love that you can used the pen directly on the paper to get a really good depth of colour, something I find difficult to do when using colour from the distress ink pads. I used some diamond stickles on her wings and some flower soft in her wheelbarrow. The papers are all NitWits. The sketch is from this weeks Friday Sketchers challenge.

I hope you have a lovely weekend. Next Wednesday we have a special Truly Scrumptious challenge when we celebrate our 2nd birthday so I hope you will visit again then!
