Sketch Time at Here Come The Boys

Firstly thanks to those of you that took the time to comment on my Christmas egg... I really appreciate it, secondly Welcome to my new Followers and Hello to my Already-Followers :-)  
Well it's back to a card today - the new challenge at Here Come The Boys  is a sketch... and you know I love a good sketch; luckily this is a REALLY good sketch!
I've made an easel card, my favourite fold!  I've made a card to welcome a new baby boy, there's a stack of my "regular" challenges that have "new" as their theme, so it's a real value for money card, lol
Here's the sketch, from Here Come The Boys - I hope you join us this time around, it's a very versatile sketch, why don't you pop on over to the blog and check out what my teamies have done with it?  Why not enter the challenge, the prize is a fab Teddy Bo image, yummy!  The image I've used here is "Spit Happens" from Mo Manning - isn't he TOO cute?!  He's coloured with Copics.  Mo's Digital Challenge this time around is Anything Goes (with a Mo image), so I'm in there, Colour Me Copic  has Pastel Colours so I'm in there too.
The papers are from a pad I got in Spotlight, if I can find it I'll link it up.  The sentiment is from Pink Gem Designs, part of a Baby Boy set.  The die cut letters are DCWV, they were white and glittery now thanks to my trusty Copics they're blue and glittery, lol  The ticket sentiments are from Bizzy Becs, I printed them on photo paper then added a pale blue "wash", they look good IRL.  The ribbon is from my stash.  I cut the image panel with Nestabilities Labels One, coloured the edge with blue Copics and freehand cut a mat from American Crafts cardstock.  all the DP panels and the image panel are mounted on foam dots, Digital Tuesday has Layers as their challenge theme so I'm entering there.
The other challenges I'm entering are as follows:

I have had a super busy, very tiring weekend; we removed all the floor tiles we're having replaced.  We worked from 3pm ti 8 pm on Friday, 10 hours yesterday and 8 hours today.  It was dirty, noisy and hot work and we've decided we're too old for it!  Thankfully our son Chris helped us for most of the time, and Matt gave us a few hours despite the fact that he worked all day yesterday, thanks boys we would have been sunk without you.  The place is nearly back in shape, the dust will settle for days yet, but that's not a real problem.  The tiling commences on Monday 14th, so I have a week to pack up my craft room & strip the carpet out, wish me luck, lol
I'll be back in a few days, making the most of my internet connection which may be a bit flaky once the tiling begins (the study has the cable socket and it's being tiled too) Until then Happy Crafting, Donna
