My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

15 December 2011

Willow Sketchie Challenge - 15th December - DT Card

Morning everyone!  Only one and a half days left for me at work and then off until 3rd January 2012! Hurrah, I certainly need a break, I can tell you!  Still need to finish decorating the lounge, just the wallpaper on two feature walls to do and then I can put my tree up!  It's been a long process, but is looking fab.  And of course I need to finish off my Christmas shopping and start wrapping and not forgetting to make a start on my wedding stationery - who said if was a break? LOL.

So, it's that time of the week again for a new challenge at Willow Sketchie.

Thank you to all of you who played along with our challenge last week - we do hope you will join in again this week and please keep spreading the word.

This week it's the very lovely Hazel's turn to host the challenge and she has produced this fab sketch for us to follow:
