Hoppy Birthday

Hi there,
Another weekend that has flown by, I really could do with an extra day just to get all the washing and ironing done! Mind you I have two teenage boys that seem to be growing out of their clothes more than they need washing lol - shoes lasting 3 months before needing new ones, jeans I am sure I only both them the other month and already they are too short! Hey ho!
I did emerse myself into the craft room just to have a bit of me time today. I came up with this ....
I followed the sketch of Sketch Saturday. I haven't used this image before - I had a design in my mind, but it ended up quite different, but I am quite pleased with it. If you look closely you will see I've run around the edges of the papers with a pricking wheel to give the look of stitching.
Challenges :-
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes.
Simon Says - Anything goes.
One Stop Craft Challenge - stitching real or faux.
I've used my promarkers, the backing paper is a pad a friend gave me cause she was giving up crafting! what ... yes you heard right! I know so many people giving it up, due to cost, time etc. I think that if I enjoy it, why not it is just a little hobby ! Oh gosh looking at the time, i've gotta go and make tea - take care and thanks for passing my way, hugs,
