Card Sketch Challenge!

Over on the Card Positioning Blog they hold a sketch challenge every week, this is my first time entering! This is the sketch that is this weeks challenge




and here is the card I made with the sketch!




My good friend Sue is selling her craft shop to my good friend Tracey!!! So it is a sad and happy time! I owe a lot to Sue for her brilliant inspiration, her kindness and her being a very good friend! I popped down to see her today as it is her last day trading, she is handing over the shop tomorrow to Tracey. I would like to wish Tracey all the Irish luck that I can give her in her new venture, and I shall be propping up the counter and drooling over her supplies!! Good luck hon, you deserve it!

I would also like to wish Sue all the best and hope she can find the niche that she is looking for and as always my offer of help is still there!

I made this card for Sue just to wish her luck, I thought the sentiment fit just right.

As you can see I have been painting again, a bit better than the first attempt!
