Guest Designing

For Scrap Lounge narrow
Hi all.....I hope you're having an awesome week - yaaay it's Friday tomorrow!!!
I am on a high tonight - this afternoon we managed to pull off a suprise afternoon tea for my DD's birthday and it felt great to surprise the heck out of her.
Her birthday is at such a tricky time of the year with exams starting tomorrow but we managed a couple of hours this afternoon to spoil her and let her know how much she means to us was fun!

Also wanted to share a recent Christmas card created for the sweet girls over at the Scrap Lounge. Many many years back the Scrap Lounge was known as Every Moment Matters and it was the first forum I was ever a part of and I enjoyed spending time getting to know the ladies over there. 
My friend Shazz who now runs Scrap Lounge asked me to create a sketch and Christmas card for one of their Christmas Challenges - this is what I came up with....
Sketch for Shazz

(Hand drawn sketches are all I'm usually up for but I did my best to do this one digitally - don't laugh too loud now will you :))
