STUCK?! MARCH 1ST Sketch & KRAFT+ March 2018..

Hello there!
I am just a little late with my March blog post, but I assure you I have a really good excuse...

I have been down at my Daughters place helping out a bit as she has just had her first baby... my beautiful Grand daughter Gloria! So I haven't been able to access my computer where all my files are... and honestly... I probably wouldn't have wanted to be on the computer when I could have this darling in my arms!! I am home now and trying to get back to normal, and catch up with stuff after 5 days away!! so I am sure you all you Grand mothers will totally understand!!

so onto the March 1st Sketch for STUCK?! SKETCHES which is another fabulous sketch which I enjoyed creating with..
but first a big thanks to the wonderful sponsors. There are three supporting this challenge..
