hide and seek sunshine - Sugar Nellie DT - CES challenge 32 Sketch

Good morning everyone did you all get sunshine yesterday, I woke to splitting sunshine so though right head to the craft room get some work done so I can get it photographed, er, well I got a bit involved didn't I and made 5 cards by then the sun had gone in and there was no light at all, just grey...luckily it came out again about 5 so I just managed to get some shots before it decided to hide again...well my Daughters first day went brilliantly she really enjoyed it but with the extra hours driving she was so shattered by the time she got home bless her, I rang her then felt bad because I have obviously woke her up from a nap...I was so relieved as I had that big knot in my stomach all day, you other Mums will know exactly what I mean, well hopefully its not just me anyway...right my card for today is for the Sugar Nellie DT, did you see my 'Nathan' card was on the Sugar Nellie blog last night and yes I know I'm on the DT now but I got the butterfly thing when I saw it...I'm sad like that lol...this gorgeous girl is called Melissa, isn't she stunning, I so love colouring these Adorables and really cant resist them and no its not just because I'm on the DT because before I was I was totally addicted to them too, I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers from the Prima Jack & Jill paper pad, I finished with a green ribbon and Prima flower, a scattering of pink pearls and a couple of totally gorgeous dragonfly charms...the fab sketch is from CES Challenge, I'm sure there's other challenge it would be for but I have lost my list...OH NO shock horror I hear you say, I'm totally lost without my lists because I'm too lazy to go through the challenge again...I'm going to do some sun bathing today or rain dodging depending on what season we are having...whatever your up to have a brilliant one everyone
