Sketch Saturday

Happy February! OMGosh, where did January go??? Horrid week for me - I had to have a trip to the dentist earlier in the week and I was meant to have some root canal treatment followed by a crown, but I stressed soooo much that I bottled out in the end and just had the thing out. Not sure if it was the right thing to do, in hindsight, but at least the pain I've been having since Christmas Day (tut!!) has now gone. And at least it was a back tooth so nobody can tell ('cept me, of course!!!).

Anyway, get over to Tag, You're It! where we're giving away a set of fantabulous Purple Onion stamps, very generously donated by the lovely Michele! These are wicked stamps to use, and one lucky tagger will be the owner of these fab stamps by the end of this week!!!

Also this week I've joined in with the Saturday Sketchers again - I'm becoming a real sketch addict and I can't wait for Saturdays to come so I can play along. The DT have some wonderful inspirational cards and the sketches are always fab! So, without further ado, here is my take on this week's sketch:

This is one of my own stamps that I made using Imagepac - it was one of those photo's that you just can't plan. My son was sitting outside on the patio and was deep in thought about something. I called his name and he looked up and I snapped it at that moment. The actual photo is one of my most favourites of him and I just had to make a stamp of it!

Well, have a great week ahead and keep your fingers crossed for that HUGE snowfall we've been promised!! I know mine are! Thanks for popping in! :o) xx
