Black & White + a sketch

First of all, a thousand thank you's to the wonderful, beautiful and incredibly talented Tracey (if you have not seen her work it is definitely worth the time to hop on over and take a look, it's amazing!) for stamping me up some images, including this darling little Oliver with his dinosaurs from the greeting farm. He will not be officially released until March, I think, but they had a limited release of him earlier this month and she was lucky enough to get him, I missed out :( I think I love him so much because he reminds me of my son Dallas, it's the hair, he has lovely soft, floppy hair like Oliver, not the little bit too big for his body head like Oliver, thankfully!

Anyways, I took the black, white + 1 challenge one step further than usual and coloured my image in black and white, and i love it, it is so much fun to do and no where near as hard as i thought it was going to be! This card plays along with:

Club Anya and friends - sketch

anyone for Anya - black, white + 1 (green!)

a spoon full of sugar - layering

Susies sassy challenge - boys card (with option of animals)
