Get Sketchy 53

Last challenge I tried yesterday and finished just before going to bed, was for Get Sketchy to use the below image;

Here's my take on the sketch;

Patterned Paper - K&Company (Roam), yellow bg - from local shop
Card - Core'dinations
Stamps - Hero Arts, Ink - Brilliance Dew Drop
Cuttlebug - Celebration stamps
Other - machine stitching

The colours are brighter, especially the yellow but my photo's are coming up quite dark, I'm only using my phone and I'm no photographer but you get the general idea of it! Hope you like it xxx

Sketch and Stash Challenge

Have entered a challenge at the last minute on Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog which I found through a Meljens Designs DT post.  So I have made a mini card based on the image below;

Patterned Papers - Making Memories & Bo Bunny
Card - Core'dinations (new)
Stamps - Hero Arts, Ink - Brilliance Dew Drop
Cuttlebug - Swiss dots embossing folder (new)

I know I will not get anywhere in the challenge but it was more to see if I could make a card and using a drawing in a very short amount of time. If I had had longer on this, I would have machine stitched and maybe used buttons.

Bank Holiday

In my previous post I said how I hadn't made a card in ages, well I made one today finally. It's bank holiday weekend and the first one my husband has had off work in ages. On Friday night his mum came over for dinner and a glass of wine. Yesterday I had my hair cut first thing and then looked for new glasses in town. My Mum came in to town to help me decide and we stopped off for a coffee. Also we went for a lovely walk at Delpre Abbey with the dogs and met our friends Louisa and Craig, their dog and baby Max. It's been tipping it down with rain all week so was nice to have some sunshine! Sat down to have a coffee and it started to rain, so had to give that a miss and have planned to go for a pub lunch tomorrow with them! So today we are having a chill day, with the fire going (not sure why i'm chilly) I'm attemping to make cards while Jon sorts a nice roast dinner for us.

Anyway here's my first card, which I have entered in Meljens Designs Challenge#22, it's very simple but hopefully this will get me making some more! So I'm off to try - Enjoy your weekend!

Not made a thing

Ok my husband keeps saying to me go and make some cards.. even told me to go to Hobby Craft and buy few bits and bobs and I did and still haven't made anything. Had a good clean up of all my crafty things so am more organised, well as much as I can be on a small table in the living room. I was day dreaming earlier about clearing out our spare room and making it a craft room... hmm.. well could nick some of it surely, how often do we have people staying over!?? Another day eh!
