Happy Hump Day!! Only 2 days to go until the weekend. No big plans here but still can't wait..hehe. Maybe I will clean my scraproom. I don't know what your areas look like but mine is a total disaster. I think I must be one of the messiest scrappers. When I find my table too cluttered I just move to the floor- that's were I do most of my cutting. I need shelving and then perhaps I could move back to the table. LOL.

Todays card is for the Sketch Saturday challenge. This was a really fun skecth. I think this one will be a keeper.

I used my pretty little Melinda stamp from the spring line from Whiff of Joy. I am still learning my shading with the copics (key here is to have more than 1 or 2 in each color scheme- I'm working on it) I am pleased with how this turned out. I used lots of shimmerz on her shirt and a white gel pen on her jeans- giving them a bit of a washed out look, I think.

All cardstock is by Stampin Up, DP is K & Co., flowers and leaves are prima.

See ya tomorrow!
