Look at that little face!

Ooooh, don't you all love Saturdays??
We do....lazy, fun days....nice food.....bit of evening TV.....and American Idol!!!
Me and Bex are hooked this season...Phil Phillips and Colton James.....awesome!
And, YES! 2 whole weeks of school holidays - bliss! I love having my kids at home although I'll definitely be ready for them to go back!
Anyways, here's a card I made yesterday - think this one would do for lots of occasions so will 
sit nicely in my stash waiting to be used! Might be just right for a little man to give to his Mum. I coloured this image ages ago and then yesterday made the card up
then suddenly realised he's supposed to be sitting on something....doh!!! Think that could be why I hadn't turned him into a card before! I liked the card so I just  quickly drew brick wall for him to sit I'm no artist but 
I'm quite pleased with it......the kids said it looked ok so that'll do for me....just hope they meant it lol!
I followed a sketch this time  - Sweet Sketch Wednesday #147 - and loved it!
Think I'll definitely be saving this one for future use if that's ok??

Thanks for popping by today, I so appreciate it and thanks for any comments you might leave.
Hope you're days a good one!
