Happy Bank Holiday & Papertake Weekly xxx

I do love Alota stamps, and this cute donkey is just gorgeous. So I thought I'd use this for our Papertake Weekly challenge which this week is one of me sketcheroonies :)xx

Sometimes I do a sketch and I really like it and this was one - I'm sure I will use it again.

So the image is an Alota - Sweet Little Donkeys #1 which you can get over at Dies To Die For - and this set is one of my all time faves. I mean, look at that little face!!!

I coloured it with the old bad boys and gave it a dusting with the Glamour Dust.
The papers are a mixture of PP and Wild Rose Studio and I've used my new border punch which you can get at Dies To Die For. It's fast becoming my fave, and one of my card club ladies told me tonight that she is desperate to get her mitts on one so it would seem that I am not alone.

And of course there's dimension and doodling :))x

And that, my little chickadees is that for tonight. I've just got in from card club and my back started aching like billy-oh driving home. So I don't know what I've done to it. but it is rather sore. So I'm off to beddy-byes and see how it is in the morning.
Hope you all had a fab day and big hugs xxxxx
