I have unpacked my case and done all the washing, thanks for the beautiful weather, but how on earth do the weeds grow so quickly in 2 weeks ??? I know my daughter has watered my plants but they do look somewhat neglected so sorting this lot out will keep my out of mischief for a while!!

LIM..........A Sketch!!

I'm back from holiday - sadly. I didn't get home until 2-00 am and couln't sleep as I had 'gone' past it and am still tired and trying to get myself back together!! 
Non the less today was my mail priority - making my LIM challenge. I love the sketch challenge this week and put it together fairly easily. I used the Simon Says Stitched Rectangles and placed some ancient vellum beneath to upper one and an equally ancient wooden Birthday stamp.  To finish it off and cut out one flower of the vellum and attached it over the stitched rectangle and added a Prima Marketing Ocean - Says it in Crystals.
