Stamps and Smiles Challenge #10

I can't believe how quickly this week has gone! One week ago today, I was dialling 999 as Alan was experiencing the symptoms of a heart attack and here we are, a week later!
(Alan is home and apparently didn't have a heart attack, could've been a clot in his heart, don't know yet).

Anyway, onwards and upwards as they say......

The Thursday Challenge has now got a home of it's own!

We also have a NEW challenge that will be starting next week, called "Project Tuesday".
Each Tuesday, a NEW project, along with samples, will be posted.
We warmly invite you to play along.
Please include the code SASSC10 if you upload to SCS.
Here's this weeks gorgeous sketch.
(Drawn by our own Queen of the sketches, Mercy Kerin).

Here's my sample.

I coloured Cuppy with Copics and shaded my fabulous Top Note die (thank you Jennifer), with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose, using that wooden thingy I can never remember the name of. Mostly SU papers, but the spotted one is from the Making Memories 'Cosmo Pink' collection.
The CS is Bazzil.
I doubled this one up to meet the criteria for the Copic Colour Challenge, but I've missed the boat on that one. Typical me that! LOL

I hope you'll join us in the challenge, I love to see what you've made with the sketch.

Thanks for visiting. Viv xxx
