A Gem of a Challenge - sketch

This week at A Gem of a Challenge, the lovely Gemma has created a fab sketch for us all to use.  We're also having a DT call - see the challenge blog for details if you fancy joining us :o)




I've used the pre-coloured version of the super cute Dragon Josh for my card - printed out several times on linen card and then layered up for a bit of a 3d look.  The papers are from the Honey Bee set from Raspberry Rd, again printed onto linen card, with a bit of inking around the edges.  The little sentiment tags are from one of the new sets from LOTV - I'm a bit addicted to sentiments and have bought quite a lot of them recently... just can't seem to resist!  Added some little pearls and card candy to finish.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

We're having a bit of a trauma with Dex at the moment!  He fell over in the garden at my mum's last weekend and split his lip - lots of blood!  He's been letting me bathe it with salt water and it looked ok by Tuesday... but when I picked him up from nursery on Wednesday he'd fallen off the step they use to reach the sink, and landed on his lip again!  Lots more blood and I think the nursery staff were a bit scared to hand him over lol.  Anyway, since the second fall the cut hasn't healed very well and we had to get antibiotics from the docs... which tastes revolting and he has to have 4 times a day... it's no fun trying to get a 4yr old to swallow 2 spoons of yucky stuff 4 times a day I can tell you!  Lots of bribery going on here...

Hope you're all having a good weekend so far :o)
