Today is known as The Glorious Twelfth in the UK as it is the start of the grouse shooting season.
This reminds me of happy times spent at the Toc H Centre in Colsterdale near Masham in North Yorkshire when I was younger. It was miles from anywhere in the middle of the grouse moor and we had some fabulous times there as a group of volunteers training to lead community projects or being there with a houseful of children, or just socialising and reflecting on another great year of fellowship and giving.
Here's a picture for old times sake.
So last week I went a bit vintage with my card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Design team and this week I was feeling a bit of an oriental influence.
I was give Penny's Heart to play with from our sponsors Dilly Beans and here is what I created with it
I used some very old Doodlebug glittery cardstock and some much newer Minnie mouse papers for the black and red, I thought I had some red paper with hearts on but that must have been donated somewhere.
Ribbon is from the jar and the base card is Craftwork Cards.
Penny has been coloured with Copics
and here is Sallys fabulous sketch
I have to admit that these diamond shapes are growing on me
Thank you for visiting and it would be lovely if you could find time to play along with us this week.
