Mo's Challenge #24 - A Sketch

I have fond childhood memories of my Grandma's house and the constant stream of stray cats she took in. For some reason this week's sketch challenge from Mo's Digital Pencil has brought many of these memories flooding back! It probably started with my choice of image - the fun lovin' Sinatra. I remember the frustration as the cats "played" with my Nana's ball of wool as she tried to get her knitting done! Since I bought a ball of wool for another recent challenge I decided to start knitting a "scarf" and have Sinatra play with the yarn at the other end!
I had a lot of fun with this sketch - it's good to try an idea that's a little different sometimes and the sketch was easy to play with! The sentiment is computer generated and the DP is from one of my Basic Grey paper pads - I know - what a surprise - LOL.
