Simon Says Stamp DT Card - Sketch Time

Good morning peeps,
I had a whole day out in the big wide world yesterday which I haven't done since before I started on the new painkillers, I couldn't take them yesterday due to driving & blimey didn't I notice the difference which was painful but also good as it proved how much they help :) Hubby, Jodie & I all went to Cribbs Causeway for a bit of shopping, actually a lot of shopping lol & lunch. I got chased, yes literally chased by a woman who I was about to belt over the head thinking she was after my handbag but she grabbed my hand & was babbling on about my fingernails being real & beautiful !!! I was so shocked & all hubby & Jode could do was stand there in fits of laughter, I couldn't decide if she was leading up to trying to sell me something or just a nutter after my fingernails & I didn't hang around to find out lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is a

The card I have made using Domi's lovely sketch I made a couple of weeks ago & was a last minute Christening card requested by Jodie 3 days before she was being Godmother to her friends baby boy. She was over the moon about being asked to be Cobey's Godmother but she said the Christening was in April but obviously in her excitement got it sooooo wrong lol.
