Ratted




I wouldn't normally do this but I am killing two birds with one stone today by combining two of my favourite challenges, Penny Black Saturday Challenge and Sketch Saturday. I was looking through my Penny Black stamps to see what I could use with the 'stars and stripes' theme and came across this little fella, bought him at the Stevenage show. Although he is entitled 'dressed up', he looks a bit rat-a***d to me, I just love his expression, so this is his debut.

Just to let you know, I have just received another assignment from Stamp Addicts for yet another TV show, scheduled for October so I've got the month of September to get my artwork done. Their latest TV show, The Spirit of Christmas, will be on air 6th September, so make a date with Create and Craft.

Congratulations to all the new Sketch Saturday Design Team.
Happy Crafting.
