Playing along with some challenges.

First, a disclaimer:  I cut the index finger on my right hand last Thursday whilst washing up the food processor blades.  I now have a finger with 4 stitches in it all wrapped up in bandages.  Ouch.    So if there are typos, it's because typing is slow and annoying, and if my card looks crap, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!! LOL!

I wanted to play along with a couple of challenges today.  I saw the cool sketch at Iwona Palamountains "Sketchbook Saturday", and I also saw that Moxie Fab World has a "word die" challenge.  I had to reverse Iwona's sketch to make it work with the word die I wanted to use - the "Thanks on a line" die from Simon Says Stamp (thanks, Linda Trace!).   I then pulled out my brand new Derwent Inktense pencils (they were a birthday gift from my family - just arrived today!) and the first colour that drew my eye made me think of this week's KIS challenge - lots of turquoise!  So, here's 'tis.

Of course, I had to add some Wink of Stella ;)
 I'll also be submitting this to The Friday Mashup, where the theme is Watercolour and CAS.
Thanks for visiting :)
