Tilda with Peanut - Friday Sketch Challenge reminder!

Hi Everyone. Did you all have a fun Halloween? We really don't celebrate it here like those of you in the US, but it does seem to be growing in popularity. And for those of you whose children have been off school this week, I hope you've been able to keep the kids entertained!! I was very lucky because my mum took Sam down to the coast to see her sister from Saturday to Tuesday, which gave us all a bit of a break - and gave me the chance to get some sorting out of my crafty stash and of course, some crafting done!!
Anyway, back to the reason for my post!! You might have noticed from the post title that today is the day for the reminder post to appear over at the Friday Sketch Challenge, which means you've got another week to join in. It also means I've got some very exciting news to share......I'm on the DT over there! And so, here's my first DT card:
Image - Magnolia Tilda with Peanut watercoloured with Distress Inks.
Papers - Magnolia 'Turning Leaves' collection.
Sentiment - Whimsy stamps.
Metal Corner - Wild Orchid Crafts painted with Picket Fence Crackle Paint.
Dies - MFT Die-namics 'Upsy Daisy', 'Prima Donna Petals', Whimsy Stamps 'Postage Stamp' die and Memory Box 'Dragonfly'.
Other - Orange card from DCWV, Bazzill Basics Kraft card, Gems from stash and Imaginisce Distressing Tool to distress all the edges of the orange card.

So - what do you think of my Distress Ink watercoloring? I've been practicing - alot! So, I really hope you can see an improvement?!? I love this image of Tilda with her little rat - something you might not know about me is that I used to keep rats. At one point, we had 7 of them - mostly named after Buffy characters LOL!
I'm also going to enter my card into the first challenge over at the Marvellous Magnolia Challenge blog (Anything Goes) and into Midweek Magnolia Challenge #35 - Anything Goes.
Right, I think that's it from me. I really hope you like my card. Thanks for popping by...........hugs xxxx
