Sketchy Free For All…



Evening everybody, what you up to? I haven’t found much time for crafting this last week, can’t believe April is just around the corner I think I lost a couple of months somewhere!

Jess came home last weekend, it was lovely to see her but she cost me a fortune as usual because I ended up buying her some furniture at Ikea for her room. She has a lovely room in a shared house with some girls she works with but has no storage and all her clothes were on the floor when we went. Keith won’t go, he hates Ikea with a passion so I ended up black and blue trying to hoist the boxes into the car on my own. Those little flat packed boxes are bloomin heavy! She went off home with them all loaded up in her car so building them without having her Dad around will be fun! The boxes will probably be still sat there next time we visit lol


Time for a Sketch challenge at Papertake Weekly and there is a new Sketch, it’s number 88



You can use this one, or because it’s a Sketchy free for all you can use any Papertake Weekly sketch you fancy. All you have to do is add the number of the sketch you’ve chosen on your entry so that we know it’s one of ours


I went with the new Sketch and I used the Me And My Pony stamp from Lili of the Valley which I coloured with Distress Inks




It’s quite a simple card, I used Baskets And Bunnies papers and the sentiment is one of the Girlie Banners. It’s the first time I’ve used these stamps and when I’d cut the curly bits off it was just what I was looking for

A bit of lace down each side of the middle layer and it’s done – hope you like it



Enjoy the rest of your evening everyone, I think It’s going to be a quick bath and then bed time for me
