Friday Sketchers Week 88

Happy Monday morning my lovelies. I am sitting here in the conservatory with the heater on. The central heating is on already but barely touches this room. SSSSShhh just dont tell hubby. I am sitting looking out the window where it is blowing a small snow blizzard - it looks soooo gorgeous. of course its not settling, which i suspect is probably just as well as i can't possibly not take Jasmine to school this week because i can't drive in it. Not as its the last few days before half term. Yeahhhhhh! looking forward to a relaxing week, and it appears hubby might even take some days off too so we can have a couple of days out. That would be nice, seeings as we are not having a holiday this year.

I trust you are all well, and relaxed after the weekend, hope you fit in plenty of crafting this week.

This week at Friday Sketchers is a fabulous sketch by Tanja. What an absolute joy to work with. Love all the layers and getting to use all those yummy papers.
Still loving these sweet pea images, as you can see im still loving the same colours too!!!! have pratically coloured this in the same colours as the last image i used, albeit they are different images. In my defence i had to use the colours to blend with the papers by K & Co - Smitten. The heart accents were a RAk from the lovely Janell, thank you hunny.

I must say i think i should have allowed the watercolours to dry before added the darker colours as you can see i have some smudging!!! (dont look too close).
I have amazed myself how many challenge ive actually entered in the last week, its taken me a long time to get motivated, but im finally there. Long may it last!

This is the sketch for this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge #88. What a dream!
Have a great day off to do a bit of blog hopping, hugs for now Linda x
