Did I Frazzle You?

Week 3 of 2 Sketches 4 You is here, or I should say deadline is here! This week it was Laura's turn to provide a great sketch and she did!

This card was made for a neighbor of mine who I asked to water my plants while I was away last weekend. Due to the inclement weather we had, she wasn't quite sure what to do, but luckily her dad was able to give her some good advice. So I felt bad that she was very worried that she was not going to water them enough or end up drowning them, luckily she did neither! :)

Here's Laura's sketch:

Hi Nikki, just to let you know I have added a subscription thingy to my blog with Feedburner - my goodness that was a minefield - I'm not particularly computer savvy and have spent quite some time figuring it all out - but managed in the end!!! Thanks for the advice - still love that cat!!! Now if I could just work out how everyone adds their signature...xx
