Sketch by Fetch a Sketch!

Hi all,

I have a had a busy few days getting last minute little bits for my baby girl's 17th birthday which was yesterday.17 - wow!!!!!!!  So Friday was spent tidying up and getting my daughter to help with a few chores, Saturday was shopping - am, manic cardmaking for my Mum in laws birthday, my Sister dropped in for a quick hello as she is down with her family for a few days from bonnie Scotland and I was cooking for my mum in law.  Sunday was a less hectic day - out for lunch with with my Sis and her family which was nice, then wrapping pressies.Yesterday was an eary start for my daughter's birthday - present opening, before she had to rush off to college then a nice morning spent with my Sister shopping - yes, I was being spoilt by my Mum and Sis, even though Mum isn't down here she left orders with my Sister to treat me - new clothes.  I never got my card out quick enough to pay.  Good latte and muffin from a well known coffee shop too- yummy! I then came home for a rest and we had to pick my daughter up from Hull Fair at 7:15 where she'd been with my Sister etc.... It's too busy for me in the wheelchair.  Got some brandy snap though.  So today was a relaxing day once the Shopping had been delivered so I could craft. This is my second draft of this card and I'm still not convinced it's okay!  Here goes:
I used papers from Funky hand cd, chipboard flower shape, image from Nutcrafters challenge blog - freebie - coloured with sakura pens and promarkers, glittered flowers - english rolled rose die & marianne designs flower die,  ribbon and sentiment and pink mirror board.

Fetch a sketch challenge 8 - sketch
Cute card thursday - challenge 185 Time for cake
Cutie pie challenge 2 - bingo board - Glitter, 2 patterened papers, flowers

Well folks I'd best go and tidy up the old craft room as it's a tip. No dinner to cook tonight as we are treating my daughter to a takeaway then belated birthday cake as she was too busy to have any yesterday. 
Have a lovely night.
