Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 with a bit on the side

We have another new sketch today at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and once again it is created by our lovely team mate Kathie.

Here is the first card I created using Sweet Geisha Charlie from our sponsors Little Blue Button.
I have used Scrumptious papers, sentiment and Candi from Craftwork Cards. 
I have used Polychromos pencils to colour

I then twisted the sketch for this second card where I used the image just once

Then I made this with a few flowers from the Scrumptious set, a couple of sentiments and some scrap paper.

Thank you for visiting and if you are inspired by our sketch then maybe you will play along with us.

Dusting off the cobwebs

Well it's been a while since I was here, life has been well life recently and sometimes something has to give.

I have stepped down from my role on the DT at Pennys Paper Crafty Challenge and this is my last card for them. 

I have used the image Flowers in Bottles from our sponsor A Day for Daisies and my blue papers are from Nitwits - Petal Fresh. They are actually from a Lili of the Valley pad that is now discontinued and I have nearly run out of. My Blue ribbon is from Craftwork Cards and I coloured the image with Polychromos pencils. 

So with all the blue and bottles I will enter this card in this weeks challenge at Allsorts

My next card is my DT card for our latest challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
We have this lovely Woodware Stamp as a prize.

This is Kathies Sketch - it's another good one

and here's how I used it.

Papers are LOTV Nitwits Country Meadow, Ribbon is from Craftwork Cards and the image is Sarah Kay decoupage. I do love these sweet images and it was nice to have  change and play with my decoupage, The die is from My Favourite Things.

Thank you for visiting me and I won't leave it so long next time

Snap happy at Pennys

Here's my card for this weeks challenge at Pennys Paper Crafty Challenge.

We are sponsored by Little Blue Button and I have used the image Miss Lilly Snap.

Papers, flower and sentiment are from an early Julie Loves Kit from Craftwork Cards. This one was Hearts and Flowers.
I coloured the image in Copics to match the papers.

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Sketch 127

I have been rather neglectful of my both my blogging and commenting recently so apologies to those I have neglected, hopefully normal service will resume.

Here I am with my card for our challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 where we are sponsored by Digistamp Boutique. I have used Penguin Fun Set to create my card, coloured with Copics and papers are Dovecraft Winter Blooms.

Thank you for visiting and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Sweet Sketch and Dilly Beans

This fortnight we are using the quirky images from Megan Suarez at Dilly Beans along with another great sketch from Kathie.

I am using Penny and Fox Framed. I have coloured her with Copics although somehow I managed to colour the hair the same colour as my skin so had to darken the hair. I think it worked. 
I have used some papers from Craftwork Cards and some dotty organza ribbon. I have had the ribbon slide for ages and it went well with the papers so that was a bonus.

It would be great if you could play along with us this fortnight.

Thank you for taking time to visit me.

Catching up with pretty things

I am sharing 2 cards today. They are my DT cards for Pennys Paper Crafty Challenge for the last 2 weeks. Above is my card for 349 using an image from our sponsors Sparkle n Sprinkle. It's precoloured so great for making a quick card. Papers are LOTV Nitwits which are now retired. Sentiment is from a Craftwork Cards Julie Loves kit and pearls are Dreamees I think.

My next card is for the current challenge - no 350.

I coloured this one in just after my Copic Class the other week. Papers are LOTV/Nitwits again and the dies are Marianne Designs, pearls are Dreamees and Hobby House.

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to leave.

I am entering challenges at Allsorts - Think Pink
