Sketch #115 with DigiStamp Boutique

Good morning everyone and welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
It's Kathie here from Auckland New Zealand.  I'm back after 4 and 1/2 months recuperating after breaking my ankle and having surgery and a  plate inserted and 13 screws in my leg and ankle and I'm now learning to walk again, breaking both the Tibia and Fibula bones.  It's lovely to be back especially creating cards, as I couldn't tackle the stairs to my craft room up until recently.

Well it's the beginning of Winter here in New Zealand and two weeks ago we had visitors from Australia, she showed my this lovely photo and I wondered where she had taken it, your driveway she said.  Doesn't it show you how we take things for granted sometimes, and now with what I've been through it's taught me to take one day at a time and to enjoy our lives.

We have Sally-Ann Hancock from Digistamp Boutique sponsoring us this fortnight.  I adore her darling images!  Did you know that Sally-Ann releases new sets the second week of each month?  She has so many wonderful images to choose from.  I encourage you to check out her latest.  Here's a bit more about Sally-Ann and her shop:

My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too, often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy creating them. 
This week we are offering a £10 voucher to Sally-Ann's store as our prize!  Yippee!

Are you ready to see this week's sketch.  Here it is…

 I live in the South of England, with my Scottish husband, my two teenage kids, two dogs and a cat….we live in quite a historic area, with an old Naval Dockyard, a Napoleonic fort, and Norman Castle and Cathedral and in fact, the childhood home of Charles Dickens is at the end of my road.

Necessity is the mother of invention; this is the saying that sums up the creation of LC Designs; we love stamps and what better way to satisfy the stamping urge than to create our own designs exactly as we want them!
Our products are designed and manufactured here in the UK and we get really excited when an idea comes to fruition and ends up as a real live stamp and is translated into a beautiful card.
We are always moving forward, constantly thinking of new ideas, sketch book always to hand, we love what we do and hope you do too.
