Sketch n Stash......

Morning peeps, are you all enjoying the Jubilee celebrations, such a shame it rained yesterday and last week we were basking in warm sunshine and this week its back to the rain and cold weather,had to put a jumper on again yesterday whilst watching the pageant on the telly, just hope the weather gets better again real soon. I couldn't believe that the Queen managed to stand for such a long time and not once sitting on those plush thrones......I'd have had to have curled up on one and had a nana nap.

.....talking of Nana naps, I have some wonderful news, I'm going to be a Nana again, this time my daughter waited until she has had all the tests and scan before she told us, I must admit I was quite surprised as she has hidden the morning sickness really well from us. So we are expecting our second grandchild just before Christmas......I can't wait and I can start knitting again......yay!!

Well after all that news I'd better show you the sketch by our fellow teamie Sarah-Jane for the start of this fortnights challenege at Sketch n' Stash.....and what a lovely sketch it is.

My Mums craft shop are kindly sponsering us this week and the winner gets £10 to spend.

For my card I thought I do a red, white and blue theme using an image from Saturated Canary coloured in with Prismas, the papers are from Papermania.

Ribbon Girl.....ribbon or lace.
