Penny Black 40 ~ Sketch

Hi everyone, hope you've all had a good week. Wow what a fabulous response to our Recipe Challenge.. I guess you had fun, and from what I managed to see you all created wonderful work again... so thanks to everyone for joining in the fun.

We have a fabulous prize this week ~ from our new sponsors:


and the lovely Heidi has kindly donated a $25 gift coupon ~ click here to visit their online store. They have a fabulous selection of PennyBlacks and great postage for mailing to the UK.
And our lovely DT Domi is also on their Design Team.

Well this week we have a challenge for you.


Ok now I know Im not the best artist... so I hope you won't be disappointed




Thanks to my good friend and the very talented JO for creating my Pink Sketch, so your not all looking at a piece of paper with my hand drawn sketch ~ thanks hun xxx

Well Im not entirely happy with my card, and have not been feeling great this week with a touch of flu and having to still go to work :( I've not really been in the mood to craft, but of course I didn't want to miss out on taking part on my own sketch. So here it is ...... and I must admit it does look better in real life... my photo skills really need some work.. roll on the daylight, hopefully that'll help !!!



Dont forget to pop over and see all the gorgeous creations again this week by the fabulous Design Team ~ they truely are a talented bunch of wonderful ladies....

Well I think I've gone a bit overboard with the flowers this week ~ and you wouldn't believe the amount of times I chanced this card and finally came up with this... I had to stop myself from changing it even after I posted it... I was that unhappy !!! I don't know if it the BG papers that don't match the PB image, that I don't like...or theres too much PINK !! but Im afraid I ran out of energy and patience .... so it'll do for this week Im afraid.

Well I'm off to work again today, so will pop over and see you all over the weekend.
Looking forward to seeing your gorgoeus creations.

I'll be back later today or tomorrow with my Sketch Saturday card

Have a great day everyone
Hugs

  16. Hi Tracie,
    Hope you are feeling better Sweetie. Nothing worse than having to work when you're not feeling well.
    You've done a great job with the sketch. I'm hoping I've got enough time to join in this week. It'll the first time I've taken up the PB challenge.... and you have inspired me to do so!
    Your card is pretty too. Love the way you have coloured the Hedgie, and the little flower is perfect!
    Big 'Get Well' hugs,
    Sandra xx
