It's a Sketchy Little Extra

I'm a bit late posting this but yesterday was a sad and difficult day.

Today is going to be a headache - or at the very least cause me to have one!

The plan for yesterday had been to knock through the old external wall to make the archway from the bit of our new en suite with the loo and basin in to the bit where our lovely new ginormous shower will be, but for some reason it's now going to be today.

Yesterday we were out most of the day of course. Today I'm not. And the hammering started just after 8am. I'm now waiting for the drilling to start - it's going to be very noisy and very mucky around here today. I have loads to do but I think it'll be a case of doing a few essentials then escaping to town for shopping and cappuccino - maybe I'll even stay our for lunch.

Anyway, it was Daring Cardmakers LE day yesterday, so here's the task and my card.

We're letting Santa's Little Helper have a rest for a couple of weeks, but you can still make a Christmas card for this one if you like. It's ages since we gave you a sketch to play with so that's what we've got for you this time
You can use the sketch any way you like, just as long as we can still see it in there somewhere - so stretch it or shrink it or do whatever else you can to make use of it.
I've used squares of striped paper I can't remember the name of (will update later).
circles of gold paper with sparkle in it
stamps are from several of the little Hampton Arts stamp sets from Bubbly Funk
gold embossing powder
colouring pencils
Cats Eye Chalk Ink - the lime green one (wished I hadn't now though)
gold pen
Please have a go and see what you come up with for this one - there are a couple more ideas on the DCM blog which we hope will help inspire you.

Above all, have fun!

That's brilliant Kathy. I love the way you've used the stripy squares in opposite directions, it gives it a woven effect.
