Heart 2 Heart Sketch Challenge...City Scape

I've been pretty busy the last few weeks and haven't had much time for scrapping.  In fact, I missed last two week's challenges over at Heart 2 Heart!!  I was on such a roll before that!  Oh well, I was excited to get back to it this week with my favorite kind of challenge, a sketch from the Close To My Heart Card Sketch Book, Wishes!!

Dave's Granny is celebrating a birthday in a few days and as usual, I'll be late getting the card to her.  But, I don't think that comes as a surprise to anyone anymore!!  I struggled to color this darn bear, I don't know why, but, I've never had much luck with him.  I love him though!! ;O)  I finally settled on watercolor paper and pencils.  I'm still not 100% happy, but, if you knew how many renditions I went'd understand why I settled!!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful week...mine's going to be a bit stressful.  I'm looking forward to the end of July, things should get better at work for me then!
