Thank you for joining me from the talented  Anna Foster blog  “The Little Creative Nook” for this 85th”Artful Stampers” blog hop.

The challenge this week it is a sketch and I think I will keep this one, in my little book of inspiration. 85_artful stampers team challenge hop 16052016

When I started this blog hopping thing I didn’t think I would like doing sketches. They seem too difficult, not enough guidance, too much to think about but they have become my favourite way to create and get the creative juices flowing.
