Sketch n Stash 68

It's ages since I entered any challenges but the sketch at Sketch n Stash challenge was perfect for this card for my great nephew. Sam goes to the Leeds Rhinos so I chose their colours to colour in this Lily of the Valley image.

New stash (well its a tool really) is my Cricut which I used to cut out the star the number and the letters and neglected is the Echo Park Summer Days paper which I have had for a couple of months but not dug into yet.

Thank you for looking and for any comments you might leave, they are always appreciated

Sarak Kay meets Basic Grey 1

Late last Saturday night I made up 6 Sarah Kay decoupage images and then spent most of Sunday, in between going out to buy benches and bathroon accessories, making them up following a few sketches that had been on various challenge blogs recently but which I hadn't entered.

I really enjoyed doing all of these because I love these images, hope you like them too.

Base card and scalloped oval - Craftwork Cards. Oval was embossed with a cuttlebug folder.

Paper is from the Perhaps collection and the flowers were cut out and embossed using spellbinders die Rose Creations.

Pearls are from Hobby House, inky edges are Wild Honey Distress ink and the ribbon is from my collection which is much more accessible in jars than it was on the pole.

Thank you for looking

Anyway here it is and I hope that you like it

After the famine....

It's been such an age since I posted for one reason or another which I won't go into here, but I do have lots of cards made and photographed so here is the first.

It's a pretty simple card for my husbands nephew who is 18 today.

The paper is by papermania and the cardstock and base card have all come from Craftwork Cards at some time. The 18 and the sentiment were cut out using my Cricut.

Thank yo as always for looking and for any comments
