Evening crafters, how’s your week so far?
We’re going away on holiday soon so I’ve been trying to get in front with my cards. Most of our family birthdays and occasions are in the Spring so it’s quietening off a bit now on that front. I promised myself at the beginning of the year that I wouldn’t buy any cards… and so far I haven’t!
We had a busy weekend, one of the horses that Jess looks after had an awful accident and sadly had to be put down so we needed to go and see her for some cuddles, she was devastated, she loves those horses so much. She’s very soft like me and I think it will take her a while to get over this
As it’s the last one of the month (really, already??) 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…
It’s number 91 and I think this month the whole DT have used the same one
I don’t usually do my own backgrounds but the Just Rite cobweb stamp matched perfectly so I stamped and embossed with silver powder, still love this technique even though it was one of the first things I learnt when I started making cards nearly 20 years ago.
I used the Promises papers (solids and patterned) and a LOTV sentiment
The cute little butterflies are a Joanna Sheen die and the clouds Memory Box
…and you can’t really see on the pic but there’s lots of glitter on the web!
All the details are on the Papertake blog, there is a fab prize as always and lots of inspiration for using the Sketch
Thanks for stopping by, and all your comments are very much appreciated
