Combined Digi stamp and sketch challenge

I can't believe I got to make a card today, I didn't think I would get any card making time in this weekend as my mum arrived last night to stay with us until Wednesday and I didn't want to be off crafting and not keep her company. But as usual I wake up way before everybody in the house and crept quietly into the craft room. I was stuck between challenges because I so wanted to do both challenges set for the weekend, the first one was use a digistamp challenge set by and also the sketch at . Knowing my limited time I tried to combine both and this is what I came up with. I have used Spaceman Josh from digi stamp boutique and have used cardstock whisper white, brilliant blue and green galore from SU. I have not had time to post it until tonight as I have had a very exciting day. My daughter turns seven on Monday and today we had her and her best friends birthday party at a local cabaret restaurant called Dracula's. It is well known for its popular nighttime stage shows and dinner but on a Saturday they do a Drax for Kids birthday party with a tamer kids version stage show. It was alot of fun and really enjoyable. She has been hypo all day and is finally exhausted and ready for bed. So I better go and tuck her in, I hope all the children that came sleep well with no spooky dreams.
