Just Chicken In On You .... Sketch Saturday Challenge #206

I have decided to step down from my DT position at Sketch Saturday :( ... its not a decision that was made lightly, but one that I have thought long and hard about for the past few months.

As you know O:)Dad died last November and left a gaping hole in our lives.  His leaving and lack of help from siblings has meant that my DN (niece) and I have had to take on some of the day-to-day running of Mum's home, maintenance and the gardening :|.  Obviously, something has had to give and that something is my crafting time .... of which I only now manage a couple of hours whilst Sunday lunch cooks!  

Stepping down means that I can craft without pressure whenever I have the time and if I don't have time that's OK too :)

This weeks Sketch Saturday Challenge is hosted Susie and sponsored by the fabulous 
 Kenny K Downloads  .... who are offering one lucky winner the choice of 5 digi stamps

.... the sketch to follow has been designed by Susie ...

.... here is what I did with it ....

... I used the fab Chickies by Mo Manning ....
