Sketchy Free For All…





Hello everybody, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all had a nice weekend…

Joe went to his first festival and he had a great time. I picked him up yesterday, he was covered in mud and oh my he smelled so bad, I just put all his clothes in the bin!! I love live music and used to go see a lot when I was younger but I couldn’t stand camping in those conditions, I like my home comforts now lol


As it’s the last challenge of the month (already, can you believe it??) 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, this will save you having to go back through the archives to find one that you like


Here’s Sketch #93…




…and here’s my card


PTW 73 - Sketch 93



I used another one of the new Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps, this one is called Sledging Fun

The papers are from the Pressed In Time pad, not really a Christmas collection but I think the colours go really nicely

The sentiment is from the new Christmas Wishes set

Here’s everything else I used; Cheery Lynn snowflake dies, Little B circle die, Doohickey slender firs die, Lil’ Inkers stitched banner die and Tim Holtz ideaology brads




You can see all the info about the challenge on the Papertake blog and as always some lovely inspiration from the Design Team


Righty I’m nipping next door now for my Tuesday wine with my friend and another instalment of ‘In The Club’ – have you been watching it? just love Kay Mellor’s writing


Have a lovely evening all
