Hi there bloggers! Its been a long day today....school starts back tomorrow after summer vacation here in OZ, so I have spent the day buying last minute school stuff, labeling items, covering some books etc. Don't you just love it! As a side note, it dawned on me that I have a little one going into year 2! YEAR 2...I can't believe it...where does the time go?
Anyhow, it is now 2:30 am and I have been sitting here all evening watching movies "The Young Victoria (so beautiful) and White Chicks (so funny) whilst catching up on some cardmaking for upcoming challenges. That being the case seeing that it is Monday tomorrow, I figured I would start with a Mystery Monday challenge at The Greeting Farm. This week they are asking us to case a card made by Claudine. This sketch was really easy to work with and was quick and fun to make. As usual this is my version of the sketch:

I still think it needs some more work but its better than my last attempt. What do you think? I think it may need to be darker around the edges. Here's a closer look:
