I don't enter the Crafts 4 Eternity challenges nearly enough. I find their sketches really challenging (yes I know that's the point!) & I am often put off by the shapes. Take for example the bracket shape on this week's sketch. I do not have anything suitable & did not think I could draw a presentable freehand one. But then I had a stroke of genius (well I say genius! I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of this, but I felt rather pleased with myself at the time!). I folded a piece of card in half & drew half a freehand bracket, cut it out while the paper was still folded and voila! a template. (OK, so 'genius' was a slight exaggeration!). After that there was no stopping me, though in retrospect I would have used a bigger card for this as the image is quite big. I love this Annie & Ted image from Charmed Delectable stamps from Charmed Cards & Crafts. She is such a cutie. As usual I used my DIs & the DPs are Cherry Arte, from Silly Monkey Crafts I think.
This is my fab award that the wonderful Cheryl was kind enough to bestow on me. Thank you so much Cheryl. It means a lot to me to know that someone as super talented as you saw fit to pass it on to me, amongst others. See her beautiful work here. I in turn would like to pass it on to three lovely ladies whose work I think is awesome. They are Dena, Sarah & Jenny. Go take a look at their fab creations.
Phew, I'm tired now, this has been a bit of a marathon post, & if you knew how slowly I type, I'm surprised I'm still awake! Hope you are having a good week. Thank Crunchie it's Friday tomorrow!
