Friday Sketchers #1

Yeah another new Challenge Site - Fridays Sketch. I just love these new challenges and as I've been off today it gives me a chance to have more of a play than I normally would. And I really love doing sketches as it gives me more inspiration

If you haven't heard of the new fabulous blog, then go visit them here and check out at all the wonderful creations the designers have made. They're also offering a fabulous stampset called "Gretchen" which has been donated by Korin, from Sweet' n Sassy Stamps

So here's this weeks sketch:




For this card I used my fabbie papers DCWV - Retro Prints as I wanted to make something colourful, which I don't do often so was a bit of a challenge. The cute image was sent to me by a lovely friend Becky, and I loved this Maggie image so much I just ordered her and one other, I know too much spending but I couldn't resist she's so cute, lol. I coloured her with Tombo pens - some watercoloured, but not sure if I did her much justice. The cute buttons, flowers and ribbon are all from my stash.





Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a lovely weekend.

  5. Hi Tracie, if you would like me to stamp up some images from my Whippersnappers I would be more than willing, It will not be intil after the weekend as there is another launch next Sunday and I must get down to doing some samples, only done 2 so far. Let me know what kind of card or paper you prefer, I sometimes use watercolour paper about 200 gms or just white uncoated card about 150 gms. e-mail me with your address and I will get them off to you asap is there any Tildas you want. My sons bought me so many for my birthday, I cannot list tehm all but I have Lots of Tildas (not many spring ones though) and loads of accessories.
