Sketch Saturday #258

I am all at sixes and sevens at the moment and I haven't been blogging or crafting. It's been two weeks since I even looked at my e-mail.   I'm just all over the place physically, mentally and logistically and I so need to get back in the groove.  Please forgive me.  I appreciate my blog buddies coming by to see me especially now that I'm feeling so out of sorts.   I even missed my SS challenge last week but
it's Saturday again which means another fab sketch from
Sponsored by the wonderful
and I was determined to have a go...

I needed a card for my FIL's 92nd Birthday and I decided to use this fab "Special Delivery" DigiDoodles image which sadly is no longer available.   I used my wonderful My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Portobello Road papers and paper pieced this fun guy's shirt.  I also popped up the hat and apron on silicone.  My sentiment is, I think, PTI in a nestie frame and the image is coloured in Copics.
 Do visit my teamies' blogs and share some love and then come and play along with us this week!
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
My Mum's Craft Shop Spots or Stripes
There She Goes Paper piecing
Papertake Weekly and Loves Rubber Stamps (both) Anything Goes
