 Hello everyone,

November has arrived, over here at least, November the 1st 2021 11am Monday morning.. and this post is scheduled, I'm not home, having a day out with my daughter and lunch...I was ready at

So time for another challenge over at CLASSIC DESIGN  and with our fabulous sponsor this month..

Lili of the Valley      

Now I knew I had some of those little Sketch pads of images  and never coloured,  as to me, they were so small, but of course over the years you get a bit better and fished them out of my store cupboard and presto, I'm in love all over again..this is from Set 1 - Vintage Boys.

This cute little image is called Vegetable Patch  and can still buy it, which is awesome..

This little fellow doing the digging in the vegetable garden, well, I just had to colour him..
I fussy cut some extra carrots so the dirt and carrots spiller over the edge of the image..

I used markers, a variety of them from different brands etc and plodded along...
Lots and lots of marker dots for the dirt...and love his little bird friend just waiting for that fat juicy worm to come up...

I made a panel in the background with wood patterned papers and add a cloud border across the top..I also gave his shirt some bolder stripes with a black pen..

And that's it..done..

So come on over HERE and check out my teamies projects, add a project or two and go into the  draw to win images from huh!..

Thanks so much for stopping by..

The boy images from LOTV are so cutr, but not too cute for those grown up men. This looks gorgeous, love how you added extra carrots and colored the dirt, for a realistic look.
