SALS 44: New sketch at Seems a little Sketchy

good morning all! Another run beckons this morning before me and the girls hop in the car and head south to Nottingham for a few days with their nana. I should be able to keep up with commenting using my phone - but if not I apologise in advance for not getting around to you - I will make every attempt to sort that out once I return!!! My run was good yesterday - managed the 9 miles without too much difficulty as the weather had cooled so much! We went to the zoo too and I found two familiar looking monkeys in a tree:
Photo: At the zoo today - my monkies are climbing again x

Today sees a new sketch at seemsalittlesketchy.

 I rather like this sketch - a nice simple one for sure!!!

The challenge is being sponsored by Bugaboo - I love their images - such fun. I chose to use this one for a friend who sat her AS levels this summer - she also has a sheep so its rather appropriate.

The flowers are WOC and the punch is Martha stewart. There's also a memory box die up the side there. The limited colouring on the image was done with promarkers.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

WOC:wildorchidchallenge Blue and/or purple
Digi Havendigihaven: any animal
Totally Gorjusstotallygorjuss: Furtastic

Hope you have a fabulous Monday and thanks for looking! Before I go I need to show you a banner -
