School's Out For Summer

Tomorrow is the last day at school for most of the children, at least here in London. DD2 has not been at school all this week as she has been very poorly but we are hoping she might be able to go tomorrow as it's a very short day. Because I didn't expect her to be able to go I hadn't made a card so it was panic stations this evening as you can imagine. It's been so long since I did any crafting I found it quite tough to get going!






The girl is meant to look like my dd but she ended up a little older looking. I also made her dark haired as I thought it would look nicer with the colours I chose, so it's dd2 with a wig on LOL

Image: My own drawing coloured with Copic markers. For some reason a had a few smears this time, don't know why.
Papers and elements: Basic Grey Lemonade
Pencil and numbers are some I used to sell but haven't got anymore (useful I know)
Pearls are K&Co.

Thanks for looking ♥

Oh, don't forget to enter the Copic candy! Not many entries this time, last time we had about 800! These are FREE Copic markers! Worth about £160! ;-)

Hi Karen. Thanks for popping by my blog, it was great to hear from you. I haven't been blogging quite as much recently, the time just seems to be whizzing by. I've been on the DT for Corrosive Challenge Blog so I've been posting for that, but not much else. We are going to Ally Pally in September, do you ever go there? It would be great to meet up with you :o) What a fantastic drawing!! How talented are you?!! I can't draw to save my life so I'm always in awe of those that can!! x
