Sketch Saturday - Butterfly Tree

Saturday 13 October 2012

Morning Lovelies.

Today's Sketch Saturday post comes to you from sunny Barbados (well it's a bit rainy actually, it seems we've come during the only storm of the year!) I'm loving having an apartment instead of a hotel room, being able to cook and store food and being able to put Sophie to bed in her bedroom and actually having somewhere to sit and chill out in the evenings rather than having to sit in the dark with the TV on really quiet like we've had to do before in hotel rooms! Apartments are definitely the way forward for us, oh and it's awsome having free wi-fi so I can keep up with my blogging too! I'm still really suffering with jetlag, we went to bed at 8pm again last night and were up at 6am this morning!

So on to this week's Sketch Saturday sketch which is fabulous as usual:

and this is my DT entry. I've used another Little Claire image of which I now have many! This one is the Butterfly Tree which I think is my favourite of all the stamps I have so far and one that I plan on using time and time again! I don't actually think I've done it justice mainly due to the pastel colours on this card, next time it wil be brightly coloured and covered in glitter!

I really loved this sketch as there was so much scope for pretty bits, ribbon, bows etc!
