Evening all, I’ve had another hectic week so I thought just as I sit down for a quiet hour with Mr Selfridge and a bag of Jelly Tots I’d better write a quick post
Keith’s Mum has been in hospital again …and checked herself out again! She’s so stubborn but she swears by her family GP and doesn’t think she needs to be in hospital. Whatever medication they give her she stops taking and just goes back on the tablets from the Dr, which obviously aren’t working …and so we’re back to square one each time
Joe came home on Thursday in agony, he’d fallen off his friends skateboard, and after a night in A&E he’s got a pot on and a fractured wrist. He’s supposed to be starting his new job at Wetherspoons tomorrow so it’s put paid to that, it took him so long to find a job he’s really disappointed
…happy days, one of these weeks I might have nothing to tell you, life is never boring around here!!
So onto this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge and as it’s the last one of the month we have a little sketchie for you…
... here it is, sketch #87
If you would prefer to use another sketch, then please feel free to use any Papertake Weekly sketch you fancy because we have another ...
Sketchie Free For All
All you have to do is to use any PTW sketch (it MUST be one of ours please) and just add the number of the sketch you’ve chosen when you post the link back to us. To make life a bit easier, we now have a sketches page at the top of the challenge blog so there are plenty to choose from
As always, please feel free to resize, flip and rotate the elements - as long as you can still see the sketch it’s fine
This week we are thinking of our dear friends and teamies Mary and Andrea who sadly lost their beloved husband and dad last week …sending lots of love to you both ladies xx
Here’s my card, Jess wanted a get well card for her boss who had a riding accident recently, I stuck with the new sketch…
I used Teddy Bouquet from Lili of the Valley and some of the new papers from the Baskets and Bunnies pad
I coloured the image with distress inks
If I use a sketch I don’t usually change it around but I couldn’t get the strip along the top to look right so I put it down the side instead, I printed it on the computer
I used Spellbinders Grand decorative ovals one, you’ll be seeing these a lot because they’re my new favourites
…oh, and the Crealies flower die which is another of my favourites and has been for quite a while!
Tim Holtz brads, lots of stickles and some lovely lace from the Ribbon Girl are the finishing touches
Hope you like it, thanks so much to those of you that leave me a comment, I love to read them and it’s much appreciated
Right, back to my Jelly Tots, have a good week crafters x
