Had fully intended to get this posted earlier for the wonderful sketch challenge over at Magnolia Vs Stampavie this week, but better late than never!! Love this sketch & will use it time & again I am sure. Tilda is supposed to be holding a cowberry muffin, what is a cowberry? I'm not sure it sounds very tasty, but hey, I've never been known to turn down a muffin, so I'm willing to give it a try, LOL! I have never used beads on a card before & trawled round Hobbycraft trying to find the best way of fixing it to the card. I'm not sure this is the best! The papers are blush from Basic Grey.
Thanks for looking,

I am also entering this for the Ismaki Sketch Challenge this week. It is a great layout, Though I fear I have not done it justice. I will definitely give it another go! Thanks for looking.

Below is a picture of my eldest son, Jack, holding the card he made for his Grandad Thomas' birthday. See how proud he is! He had great fun using a Cuttlekids die set & colouring it in. Before any of you ask why is he wearing that strange wig, that is actually his own hair! And yes, he is getting it cut this weekend!

Meant to publish this post yesterday, but as usual, there just aren't enough hours in the day! This is the card I gave to my wonderful hubby, Paul, for Valentine's Day, which I conveniently based on the Ismaki Sketch Challenge. I love the simplicity of the sketch & found inspiration in the lovely DT cards. The papers are from stash & Basic Grey & I coloured the image with my Distress Inks. I'm really pleased with the how the heart turned out after I glazed it, but had hoped the glittered hearts would have a bit more of a WOW factor about them! I'm currently housesitting & am looking forward to being reunited with my crafting stuff later today as there are so many juicy challenges to get my teeth into.
Hope you are all having a good weekend,

One project I have started however, is my family organiser/calendar. The calendar itself is from The Paper Mill. These are my boys, Jack (right) and Ben. Far too cute for their own good, or am I just biased!! I kept the layout simple on this, using Polar Bear Express paisley collection papers. The photo does not pick up the paisley embossing on the blue paper I did with my Cuttlebug, which my wonderful husband, Paul, bought me for Xmas. You have to admit for a man who has next to no interest in crafting that was a great present to have bought. 10/10 for effort & execution there I think.
And here is the man himself starring in February, with me! I am about the most unphotogenic person I know & even with the invention of digital cameras I struggle to get decent photos of myself. Well, they say the camera never lies, but does it have to be quite so honest, lol. Anyway, here is February, done with 7 Gypsies papers. The heart fell off my keyring, & rather than throw it away I knew I would be able to use it one day!
I am still getting used to this posting thing. I am not the most technically minded person, but I am learning as I go. Tomorrow I hope to enter a card for the Sugar Bowl challenge. Lets hope it doesn't take me another month to get that sorted!!
Thanks for looking,
