Happy Monday to me and SNS Challenge No 67

Hello blogland!  Back from a glorious week in the Lakes and I'm still happy as I have this week off too! 
I'm back with our next challenge at Sketch N Stash and this week this fabbie sketch has been designed by our lovely Sue.
So enjoyed the Clean and Simple design of this sketch, Sue - no flipping or rotating required!! Hope you will  like it too and play along with us - we are being sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamps with a fabbie $15 voucher up for grabs.
I don't purchase many animal themed stamps but just had to buy this Humphrey image a few weeks a go as it reminded me so much of the ellies in  Babar the Elephant which my children used to love when they were little! 
I thought I'd paper-piece her dress for speed but actually it turned out to be so fiddly that I ended up colouring her dress with my PMs. Not my usual colour choices either but was looking through my papers and came across these gorgeous ones, I think from a Trimcraft pack that has been lurking in my stash for a couple of years!  I believe the ribbon is from some luxury chocolate wrapping and the flowers from stash.  The sentiment is Stampin Up.
Don't forget to check out the gorgeous makes of the other SNS girls - they waiting for you here at Sketch N Stash!!
Well it's great to be back in blogland - I'm just catching up with my commenting and visiting all the fab blogs and makes that are out there (no change there then!!)
Enjoy your Monday!!
