Evening everyone, whoo hoo I got to 400 followers!! Welcome to my new visitors and thanks for stopping by
I’ve not been a good blogging buddy this last month but I will try and find time this week to visit and see what you have all been up to. I promised some candy when I hit 400 so make sure you leave me a little comment on today’s card and I’ll draw a winner from them when I do my next post mid-week
The last few weeks have been mad, no sooner is it Monday than we get to Friday again and I’m wondering where another week went. We’ve been busy at work getting ready for the new launch and I’ve had a struggle to get any cards done at home because it’s been so unbearably hot in the attic. We have some adorable new stamps out for Christmas and some papers that you will need in your stash, I’m still giddy over the new pastel pads and now we have Christmas ones too for you to stroke!!
We went to the dogs trust in Leeds today, they have a Summer open day every year and I like to go along and support them. There have been a few really bad days weather wise over the past few years but today was lovely and they had a great turn out. I always take Manny to see the girl who looked after him for 2 weeks until he was ready to come to us. She’s got herself married and had two children since we got him and she must see 1000’s of dogs but I think he has a special place in her heart and she is always so pleased to see him. I’ve never seen so many dogs of every size and breed that you could imagine… and I have to say they were all impeccably behaved!
As it’s the last challenge of the month it’s a Sketchy Free For All at Papertake Weekly
I chose to use the new layout but you can choose any of the sketches from the back catalogue (make sure you add the number of the sketch you’ve used on your entry so we know it’s one of ours)
There is a sketches page at the top of the challenge blog to make it easier and there are lots to choose from
Hopefully this will save you having to go back through the archives to find one that you like
Here’s the new Sketch #92…
and here’s my card…
I made another tiny card (4x4) as I’m liking these at the minute and I used an image from the Here Comes Annabel art pad. This one isn’t available as a rubber stamp it’s just in the pad at the moment – isn’t she cute!
I cut out the ball and stuck it on with a foam pad
The lovely lace is from the Ribbon Girl
It’s quite a simple little card, it’s not often I use buttons and can’t always get them to look right but I do love them!
I have so many shape dies and still nearly always cut squares round my images, I like using Sketches because it makes you do something a bit different
You can find all the details for entering and some fab inspiration from the design team over on the Papertake Weekly blog
Thanks for looking, don’t forget to leave a comment if you want to be in my candy draw… and enjoy the rest of your evening
