Hi there all and happy Thursday.

I've got this weeks deconstructed sketch ready for you, but before I do the reveal I have some very special news to share. Two days ago my husband and I were blessed to become grandparents for the first time. Yes, it is quite a few years earlier than we expected but i hope we will be a super cool Nanny and Pa, given our extreme youth. (LOL)

Our gorgeous daughter Annabel and her equally gorgeous partner Will, with their newborn son, Jordan Reid Sim.

We are so incredibly proud of them all.

So, to celebrate, I used this weeks deconstructed sketch to make the happy new family a welcome baby card.

Sheri designed this weeks sketch, which was so easy to work with.....

And here is my super-quick card using Sheri's sketch. As I was somewhat short of time this week, I decided to use this cute monkey chipboard piece from bella blvd instead of my usual copic colouring, and I was happy with the result in the end.

Make sure you check out all the DT blogs for inspiration.

We'd love to see your take on this weeks sketch too. You can upload your creations on Jen's blog HERE

Thank you for making it to the end of my extra long post. Have a lovely week. I know I sure will.

Bye for now,
