Oodles of doodles at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Hello and welcome to my very late DT post for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

We were away last week and so operation catch up at work added to covering for a colleague has made for a tiring week.

Anyway this time around we are sponsored by Laurie at Doodle Pantry who luckily for me provides coloured as well as outline images so great when you need to make a card quickly but you still have the outline image for those times when only colouring will do.

I chose to use the Basil Plant image and here is my card


Here is the sketch


I am sure that you will agree that it is a great one and will work well twisted too.

I do hope that you can join us in our challenge this time around.

Thank you for visiting

Pretty in Pink

Hello and welcome to my DT post for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

This week we are sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique and I chose to use Party Phoebe which I coloured with my Copic markers and matched up with the Pretty in Pink papers from Craftwork Cards.



The pink card is from American Crafts, the sparkler is from Hobby House and the lovely sparkly gold ribbon is from the local cake decorating shop.

Here is Sallys lovely sketch


We do hope that you can join us this fortnight and play along for a chance to win some lovely digi images from Sally-Ann.

More than one bug at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2


or bird depending on which side of the Atlantic you reside. Ladybird that is, but enough of my ramblings.

Here I am with my DT card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 where this week we are working from this lovely sketch designed as ever by Sally Dube and here it is.



We are sponsored this week by Bugaboo and I chose to use the image Hedgehog Flower.

I had a lovely hour or so on Sunday afternoon colouring the image in  and here is the result.

A simple sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Here I am with my fortnightly Design Team post for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

We are using Dearie Dolls images this time around, plenty to choose from and even better they are free!, what stereotypical Yorkshire person wouldn't love that.

So here is my card


I used a precoloured image, (you can get both versions in every image) so this was a super quick card to make, the papers are Nitwits Dress Shoppe, pears are from the Hobby House, coloured card is American Crafts and the blank is from Craftwork Cards.

Here is Sallys lovely sketch. I can see this being used for Christmas cards, watch this space.


Thank you for visiting and I do hope you can play along with us.

SSW2 SKETCH 91



Here I am with my Design Team post for our latest challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Here's the sketch that Sally has designed for us this time around





Another great sketch and so quick and easy to create with and here's what I made.



My image is from our brilliant sponsors Digistamp Boutique and is from the set Rosie Collection 1.

Papers and sentiments are from Craftwork Cards Celebrations collection.
Base card is Craftwork Cards and other card is from the craftroom shelves.

The ribbon was part of  a recent thank you gift from a work colleague who I helped out with his final project for college.


What's not to love about a few rolls of ribbon.
