Sketch Saturday and blog candy!

Would you believe it's the weekend again already?!! Over at Sketch Saturday we are so happy to announce that it is our 4 year blogoversary!! Hurrah!! Not only do we have a fabulous sketch to work with and our usual fabbie prize, each of the DT are also offering a little blog candy to celebrate!! All you have to do to enter mine is simply to leave a comment on this post. I will randomly pick a winner at 09.00 GMT on Saturday 2nd June. Good luck! 


Today I am using Cutie Patootie by Elzybells to make a card for one of my friend's little girl. I have coloured her with copics and then used lyra pencils for the grass. I have paper pieced her cute dress and hair bow. I also added some soft lyra pencil around her. Papers are MME Fine and Dandy Girl- eagle eyes will spot the side papers are the wrong way round- the cherries are upside down!! Doh!!! Oh well, I thought, she's only little, she'll never notice!! The flowers are die cut using the Magnolia Strawberry leaf and flower die. Border is a Martha Stewart punch. Sentiment is a rub on by Pebbles Inc.

I'd like to enter this into:
Southern Girls- diecut or punch
Crafts and Me Challenge- fabulous flowers
Bearly Mine- anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday- dig out the old (Elzybells stamp)
Stamps & Fun= Creativity- anything goes
Card Making Mamas- feeling punchy

By the cute and girly- Spring is all around


A close up! I think she's blushing!


Jo's fabbie sketch!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Elzybells); Copics; Lyra pencils; Papers (MME); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Flower die (Magnolia); Punch (Martha Stewart); Gems & pearls (Prima); Rub on (Pebbles Inc).
