Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge

 Here's my entry for this weeks challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. It's the end of the month so as well as this sketch

there is a twist of coffee.

Please don't tell anyone but I suspect that the character in this Lili of the Valley Hello Cupcake image may actually have a cup of tea in her hand but I have used coffee and cream coloured papers as well as the pink ones that came from Craftwork Cards some years ago.
I punched the flowers from the same papers and used a small circle punch just to shape them a bit - here's a close up

The pearls are from my stash and the oveal is die cut from American Crafts cardstock using my new just arrived yesterday Spellbinders Floral Ovals. I have been wanting this set for ages and when they came up on Amazon at about £12 they were too good a bargain to resist so this sketch was perfect to have a play with them too.

Hope you like my creation

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

More monkeying around

Here's another card using an image from the monkey set from Digi Stamp Boutique

I've used the Lili of the Valley Candles and Cake papers again along with  a couple of Craftwork Cards sentiments and this sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Monkeying around

I didn't get time to play at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 last week so decided I would use this weeks sketch for Martins nephews birthday card.

He lives in Australia so as summer will be on the way there soon I thought I would use the BBQing monkey image from Digi Stamp Boutique which I have had since earlier in the summer but not used yet.

So here is my quite simple card.
As well as the main image the sentiment is from Digi Stamp Boutique, the papers are Lili of the Valley, ric rac came from a shop in Farsley near the Lili of the Valley shop which I can't remember the name of  but is great for all things haberdashery.
The base card and Candi are from Craftwork Cards, I was going to use buttons but thought the candi would be lighter and therefore cheaper for posting.

Thank you for visiting.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Not the best photo but here is the card I made for my step great- nephew who had his 11th birthday earlier in the week.
It's a 7x7 base card and the grey and yellow card I have used for matting is American Crafts, everything else is Roald Dahl from doCrafts. I thought this would make a change for the younger people in the family and may come in for some of the older ones too.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - in the potting shed

Last minute again but here is my card for this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge

It's a 5x5 inch card from Craftwork Cards and I've used a topper and papers from their new Potting Shed collection to decorate it.
The green cardstock is American Crafts and the ribbon and lace are from my stash.
The Candi has been glazed with Glossy Accents.
I've drawn faux stitching aroung the topper and paper with a sakura pen as the twist at Sweet Sketch Wednesday is stitching and here is the sketch
