Sketchy LIM

Hi there, welcome,
It's a bit cooler here today but the sun's shining:0)
I hope you're enjoying the Olympics it's fun to pop in for a look every now and then and see how your country is doing:0)
The gorgeous girlies arrive soon to spend a few days with Nan and Grandad, yippee!! I think I've recovered enough for another go LOL
Today I made a card for the LIM challenge which this week is a Sketch. Chrissie and Mandi have made it nice and simple, great!!! Thank you ladies!

I have kept pretty much to the design :0)
I'm off now to put up beds and change linen and generally get a spruce on LOL
I hope to be by to see you soon, hugs Gay xxx
Oh yes
I used the new Tim Holtz stamps and waste from die cutting with Spellbinders posts, I can add more details if you're interested :0)

Very elegant and chic Gay! You have put a lovely twist on the layout..superb! Hate to tell you this though, but your Union Jack (a little late for LIM) is upside down...that is usually a French trait....:O) Have a great week!

This is fabulous Gay, love all the gold - looks really special! I must knuckle down and get on with my LIM card, but I'm a bit distracted with another project at the moment. It's not working out but I'm loving getting covered in acrylic paint! Have fun with the girlies, Jo x
