Getting Sketchy at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges!

There is a fabulous sketch to inspire you this week at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge Blog. We would love for you to join us and be in the running to win a great prize!

I've used the handsome "Lil Christmas Lad Lestat" this time - this is my husbands Christmas card this year. It's no secret that I love the vintage look and I love to colour in black and white/shades of grey. I think that this should be masculine enough for him too!
