Sketch Saturday (on a Sunday again, again!!)

Coo-ee!

Oh I'm so, so late again, for the third week running!!  I blame the new routine which I'm just getting myself into so fingers crossed I'll be back to 'normal' soon lol!  But I have managed to catch up with you all, wahooooo!!  So at least I'm definitely heading in the right direction!!  So far this weekend I've been into town to do a bit of shopping, filed and paid the VAT, filed hubby's Tax Self Assessment, done all the washing, done my big food shop and sorted out my new work bag (which was actually an old work bag that was full of rubbish!!).  Now to post my Sketch Saturday DT card from yesterday, a quick hoover up and then I can sit and make a card, wahoo!  Oooo it's tough fitting in what used to fill a whole week into just 2 days lol!  Buuuuut, it is such a nice feeling knowing I'm earning money again, and the first week went well too so happy days!  Hope next week is as good?...

Onto my card and this one I made for my cousin's wife who was 30 last week...



A close up of LOTV's 'Rosie with Cake'...

And a side view...



Here's this week's fabby sketch (I rotated it!)...



And this week we're sponsored by...



The Craft Barn who are donating a very generous prize for the lucky winner.  Head over to the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog for more info  :o))

Ok, time to get that hoovering done!  I've got a lovely Roast Beef to cook up this afternoon too, yum!  And then the ironing, I haven't done any ironing for ages, damn the work clothes lol!!  Oh well, at least we have Dancing on Ice on tonight.....and then The Only Way is Essex!!  My guilty pleasure, we all have them right?!

Have a fab rest of the weekend everyone and I'll see you soon,
Much love,
