Sweet Sketch Wednesday & Whimsie Doodles

I trust you are all well?
I'm a lot less stressed this week, thank goodness! Our 11 year old daughter sat 3 exams during November & December last year to see which Secondary or Grammar she will be attending this September. The results were delivered Saturday past (5th) & I'm so proud to say she passed with flying colours & will get a place in the Grammar school of her choice. Lara worked really hard & I'd just like to say a huge CONGRATULATIONS to her, love you loads chickie!

Here is this week's sketch from Arlana to get your creative juices flowing...
