Melinda for Sketch Saturday

I am so glad I managed to get this weeks sketch done for Sketch Saturday, it's fab and so quick and simple to do yet so pretty. woj-cupcake-stach-sat

I love this Melinda with Muffins (okay I love all the angels lol) and have only used her once so she was feeling very neglected. I've used the delish Kaiser papers that I got from The Hobby House - come on Jill, get 'em on the website *wink*. Love these colours. I've used some mulbery roses (bought loads and loads of them a few weeks ago from Wild Orchid Crafts - super service and excellent prices) but have decided that I am pants using them. Take a look at Kim's cards - now this is one lady that DOES know how to use them to perfection!!

The sketch also gave me the opportunity to get "that" Martha Stewart punch out ...

So I went crazy with the punching, as you do. Isn't this sentiment just perfect for these darling images?
