Friday Sketchers and 2 awards


Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't been posting much of late but I'm intending on doing a whole lotta crafting from now on so stay tuned for regular updates! Today's posting is an entry for Friday Sketchers. The above sketch was set by Carole and is a really fun and simple one to do. Here is my take on it:


I've been itching to use my new Forever Friends stamps I got for Christmas so I made this card for my brother's birthday. I quite like the colouring I've done (if I do say so myself!!) I used watercolour pencils for that really soft look.I used my new rectangle nesties to cut out the design. The papers I used were from Banana Frog and the cardstock is American Crafts. I added a couple of brads from my stash.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Forever Friends); Cardstock (American Crafts); Paper (Banana Frog); Brads; Nesties; Watercolour pencils


I've received a couple of awards which I hadn't mentioned- sorry ladies, I've not been on planet earth the last couple of months. This award is from Berenice. Thank you so much, Berenice, it's lovely to be appreciated!

This award is from the lovely Louise who always amazes me because she produces SO many amazing cards every week and I always LURVE her papers! Right back atcha ladies! I'm not going to pass these on just yet as I thought I might do some surfing and find some new blogs to add to my ever-extending list.
