I laughed so hard.....

Hello and happy Thursday to you! I have a card I want to share using sketch #5 from Lesley Croghan at Always Playing with Paper:

Here's the inside:

the sketch:

Ok, so it's a loose interpretation of the sketch. But I liked it, even though the image I used is too big for it. It's been a while since I colored anything, and I needed to color this image specifically, since I had one of my sisters in mind when buying the set. (and it is soooo her! LOL! and her birthday is coming up, so... ☺)

That's all for now. Short and sweet. Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a great rest of the day! Stay crafty my friends!
