Delicious Doodles Sketch Challenge

Psssst!  Wanna know a dirty, little secret?  I HATE sketch challenges!  I am just so useless at them!  I get so far and just give up, there never seems to be enough room for the bits I need to fit on!

However, this one I just couldnt give up on....I put it off, Lord knows I put it off!  Eventually, I couldnt put it off any longer!

I even thought about asking to be excused!

Then, after a swift kick up the butt, I decided to just get on with it and not stop until I had finished!  Even better, I had a birthday card to do for the very next day and I had promised myself that I wouldnt start that until I had finished this!

So I did it!  Well you knew that didnt you - I mean you can see it!  And yes - I DID want to give up half way through!  And yes - I DID have way too many bits to squeeze on...but I thought it would be good discipline to carry on.

So - whether you love em or hate em - why not give this challenge a go over at Delicious Doodles Challenges?  You never know, you might surprise yourself!

Thanks for popping by today!

LOL - If I didn't know better, I could've been the author of this post. I too hate sketch challenges and put off doing my card 'til last minute.

I love your take on the sketch btw. x
