Everybody Art - Sketch!

Good Morning!
I am afraid I dont have a card for this weeks EVERYBODY ART challenge where you have to follow a Sketch this week.


I went away unexpectedly over the Bank Holiday and haven't been able to make a card as I haven't been home yet.
This is also why I haven't been able to reply to comments as I am having to use someone else's PC to writ this post.
So sorry for being a bad blogger!
