Penny Black 38 ~ Something To Eat & Sketch Saturday 40

Morning everyone, hope your all well and had a good week. Thank you so much to everyone for your well wishes... I am getting better, slow but surely... and although I can't do a lot of blogging or crafting at the moment, I really appreciate you stopping by and all your lovely comments ~ thank you.

Well its time for another


Thanks to everyone who join us last week, and what gorgeous cards you all made. Im looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week.

I made an Easter Card for my nephew, so have kept it rather plain... so no flowers, no ribbon for me this week... hope its not too boring..




I didn't plan on using pretty much the same layout as last week, so Im sorry .... it just happened that way after I had cut out the image on my nesties, and as the image is rather large I wasnt sure what else to do... and to be honest I was feeling rather tired when I was making this one, so left it as it was.

We have another fabbie prize this week so why not pop over and and take a peek and also check out all the fabulous work again this week from the Design Team.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


It's time for another of Jo's fabulous sketch's, and for all you lovers of layers ~ well this ones for you.... Thanks to everyone who joined in last week and hope you'll join us again this week.

Im just sorry I haven't been able to visit you all, it been a struggle this week.

This weeks sponsor is The Craft Barn and onw lucky winner with receive these beautiful stamps from Paper Artsy Minis collection....


Well for this weeks card I used some more of my new Basic Grey ~ Bittersweet papers along with this little cutie.... WOJ Henry. When I first saw this weeks sketch ~ I freeked thinking OMG what am I going to do with this one... well after a lot of thinking and changing, I came up with this...



I'm not very happy with the picture as it doesn't show, just how beautiful these papers are, if only I could take my picture in daylight...

Dont forget to pop over and check all the fabulous cards from the DT this week, and Susan who has been out Guest Designer for the past 2 weeks.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by
Hugs
