Sarah's Cards April Sketch Challenge.

Hello and happy Tuesday. Well spring has finally sprung here in the UK and I am checking everyday on the seedlings growing in the greenhouse ready to plant out at the allotment. The strawberry plants are coming along nicely now the sun is shining and my new rhubarb patch is amazing!
How is your veg patch or flower seedlings coming along?
I have a page today that shows some photo's of one of my favourite birds, the robin. I know he is normally associated with Christmas and snow but we went to a bird sanctuary over the Easter holidays and the robin was the most prolific bird there and so tame!

Sarah's Card's blog has the perfect sketch this month to showcase the photo's that I have of the little robins. I wanted to play with smaller photo's so this sketch was ideal for me.

Please click on the image for a better view.
Here is my page and as you can see I have kept very much to the sketch as it really was exactly what I needed for these photo's.
All the papers are My Minds Eye a line called 'On The Bright Side' and it's my favourite paper line at the moment as it has some subtle patterns and also some brighter sheets as you can see with the papers I used.

I purchased some new washi tape from Sarah's Cards shop recently, as I was missing orange in my growing collection (and you know I love orange!) I purchased the triple pack also from My Minds Eye and you can see one of the patterns in this photo. Check out the pack HERE it's so nice!
A last close up of the sweet wooden butterfly that I placed in the corner where the star is on the sketch.
Ok, now that you have seen my take on the sketch for April's challenge, it's your turn to have a go and you have until the end of the month to play along. All the details can be found HERE and there is a wonderful prize up for grabs too, £20 voucher to spend in Sarah's Cards shop, which you should check out HERE.

Hope the rest of your week is fabulous with lots of sunshine and plenty of crafty time.
Thanks for taking a peek.
