What a plonker!

I am the world's worst ProCraftinator. I will freely admit that I spend more time on Pinterest and Bloglovin looking for inspiration than I do crafting.  I hadn't realised that, in doing so, I had also been missing out.

Pinterest is probably my biggest problem, with almost 2900 pins as I type.  One of my boards is for card sketches for when I can't figure out what layout to use on a card.  There are numerous sketch challenges on the Internet and I frequently pin layouts marked 'I {heart} sketches', but that's as far as I ever went.  I just pinned the sketch for future reference.  Imagine my surprise when I found a Bloglovin post (don't ask me who's - although I will be eternally grateful to them - I follow so many) which took me to From the Heart Stamps, the creator of the sketch challenge blog that I so often pinned.  Best of all, they do digis.  Yeah!  I can't believe that I've been missing out for all this time 'cause I didn't click on the pin, Doh!

Needless to say I've been shopping this week (thanks Mamma B for the birthday money) and I can now enter the challenges as well as pin them.  Here's this week's challenge
and here is my interpretation.

I used one of the stamps I bought, Birdbrain wine, although for this card I only used part of the stamp.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn
