Well its time for another challenge but first I'd like to say thanks to everyone who joined in on Debbie's gorgeous sketch last week and wow what a fabulous response too... I guess you all love Debbie's sketch as much as we all did.

Here's this week's sketch

I really enjoy these challenges every week and can't believe how time has flown as we're at week 50 already... almost a year since Jo posted her first sketch.
This weeks prize has been kindly donated by Heidi from

And one lucky winner will receive a $25 gift voucher to spend in her online store

I thought I'd give the Pink a rest this week as I so often us it and I'm sure your all getting sick of seeing so much PINK so here's my creation of Brown, Yellow & Blue.....

I brought some new online digi papers this week from Nitwit Collection, they have a lovely selection of gorgeous papers and are very resonable priced too... which is always a bonus.... these papers are from the 'In The Meadow Too' range. And considering there's no pink on my card... Im loving it as much.

I'd like to say a massive thanks to Jacqui for joining us as Guest DT it's been a pleasure having you join us and sure everyone will agree ~ your work its truely an inspiration, so thanks hun.

The DT have all created some fabulous work again this week so why not pop over and join in the fun with us this week.

  27. Sorry for my late comment sweetie, I keep trying to find a couple of minutes to leave comments but everytime I start somebody is calling me again :S. But here I am telling you that I love your cards again (but then I always do don't I :) ). I love the fact that you've only used a sentiment for the PB card, with the embellies you've used it really doesn't need an image and the SS card has such gorgeous soft colours. Absolutely gorgeous! Hope you are well sweetie!!
