 Happy New Year to you all. 

So, welcome to this months Blog Hop, if you are either starting here with me or coming via the wonderful Jill Chapman, thank you for stopping by,

It has been several months since I took part in a blog hop and I am thrilled my first one back is with Stamping Inkspirations.

This month the theme is a Sketch Challange, this is the sketch we were given:

A cute simple sketch, which is perfect for me I like simple.

My measurements are based on A4 cardstock and are in imperial measurements

7/8" x  8 1/4" scored at  1/8"
