Sketch Saturday- Eat dessert first!

Hello peeps! How's it going? Sorry I haven't had the chance to visit any of you this week, I'm really busy at the moment so I'm finding it difficult.

It's Saturday so it's Sketch Saturday time! Here is my card...

I LOVE this image from Stamping Bella called Lulu's 2 Pies. As you know, I'm a big fan of the Lulu range, I love the retro feel of it. As soon as I was going to use this image I knew what papers to use- Echo Park Happy Days- how retro are these??!! So reminiscent of 50s America with soda pop and diners!! Love it! I coloured her with copics and some watercolour pencils eg for her apron. Lyra shading at the bottom as per usual. The sentiment comes with the image.

I'd like to enter this into:
Delightful Challenges- use patterned paper
Stamps & fun = creativity- use your favourite stamp
Papercraft Star- something from your kitchen
Penny's Challenges- anything goes
Crafty Boots Challenge- food glorious food


Close up of colouring!

Here is today's sketch- I flipped it!

Today's prize is sponsored by the fabbie Craft Barn!

I also wanted to show you my new paper pads I bought as a little treat for getting on the Sketch Saturday DT (any excuse!!) Sorry I didn't have time to do a video. They are all MME except the Nordic Holiday one which is by Basic Grey. The new MME are amazing- in particular Dilly Dally (which is my fav one of all!) and On the Bright Side- 1 & 2.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stamping Bella); Copics; Watercolour pencils; Lyra pencils; Papers (Echo Park); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Nailheads; Button (PTI)
