By the River

I missed last week's sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, I really must be more organised! So I'm getting in early this week with Sketch #162.

I'm having a good week so far. I've won a prize at Dutch Dare and have been nominated for a top 5 spot at Passion for Promarkers & Come & Get It. And, thanks to Bev's fantastic video tutorial I am much more happy with my colouring of hair (this cutie ended up in the bin 3 times 'til I watched the tutorial!) All I need now is for the sun to come out! (won't hold my breath).
