A Spoon Full of Sugar - Sketch

A Spoonful of Sugar has a fabulous sketch this week by the very talented Katharina. The design teams work is as fabulous as ever, you can find them here.

I couldn't believe my luck with this sketch as it just so happens that I made this card at the weekend just for fun and never got a chance to post it on my blog. And after one minor adjustment, hey presto I had my card for the challenge - how cool is that.

I'm so please as I've missed a couple of ASFOS challenges over the last couple of weeks what with being so busy and really wanted to find the time to play this week, and I did, lol

I've used another one of my new gorgeous Elisabeth Bell stamps that you can find here, and coloured her in my Primas.

Have a great evening everyone, TFL x

PennyBlack Saturday Challenge - Snow Much Fun

Wow I cant beleive its week 6 already and wow what a massive response we had last week. Thankyou to everyone who joined in with our sketch last week, its so lovely to see all your fab creations, we love visiting your blogs. I'm just so sorry I didn't manage to get round to you all last week it's been a made week again and hasn't helped that my computer has been playing up again, which has restricted me in visiting you all, sorry.

We have a fab challenge for you for this week and some wonderful stamps to give away to one lucky winner kindly donated by Sir Stampalot. If you fancy some fun and dont mind making a Christmas card in July then we'd love to see your creations.

Snow Much Fun - We'd like to see you make a Christmas Card incorporating snow in your card.

With having such a busy week I was still making my card at 10 o'clock last night, so I apologise I had to make a quick card this week and didn't manage to make anything fancy. I've always wanted to make a shaker card and thought it would be a good idea for this challenge, but with not much time I only managed to glitter and water colour the image to give it a snowy/frosty effect. Hope its ok.

I'm off to work again today :( so will pop over and see you all later. Looking forward to see your fab creations.

Have a great weekend & Happy Crafting Everyone xx

I had so much fun with this fabulous sketch, although it did take me a while. I feel because Im not crafting as much at the moment I'm losing my mojo !! guess that has something to do with too much stress at work and being to tired to do anything. I know it'll pass and I'm happy with the result of my card, in the end, lol.
