Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Post

I have just joined the Design Team at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges and this is my first card for them. Our theme this week is Winter/Christmas.

I have used Christmas Decor from one of our sponsors A Random Fan, a new company to me but I do like this sweet penguin image which I had to play with and had great fun with flock glitter and flower soft which just about shows up on the photo.
I used a scallop circle from Whichcraft to make my card, dies are Spellbinders and Britannia and an X-cut snowflake punch came out of the box too.
Papers are Nitwits Snow Princess.
Coloured with Copic and Sakura pens.

Thank you for taking the time to visit.

Freshly Brewed at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Would you believe it we are at sketch 99 at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 this week and here it is

and here is the card I made 

I think that I am in a bit of a bug and flower mode at the moment as I chose Lazy Day Bug from our sponsor Fresh Brewed Designs as the image to use, I've paired it with some Echo Park Summer Days papers, I am obviously not ready to let those summer days go yet.

We do hope that you can play along with us this fortnight and Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 .
Please hop over to the blog nd see what the rest of the Design team came up with.

Papers are Lili of the Valley
Ribbon is from the Cake shop
Sparklies are from my stash.

Thank you for visiting

Daisies and A Day for Daisies

I'm a little late with my card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week.
 Shhh don't tell the boss but I ended up printing my image off at work because my laptop was mis-behaving, touch wood it's behaving just now. Anyway here I am.

This week we are sponsored by A Day for Daisies and I have used the image Potted Gerbera Daisies, I do like gerberas but have to admit to a little artistic licence as I don't think that I have ever seen a purple one.

Here is Sallys lovely sketch

I have to admit that I'm not usually keen on a diamond shape focal point but having used my Labels dies on this one I think I might be converted and may have to revisit some older sketches soon.

Why not give it a try at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

In the garden with Bugaboo and Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Hello and welcome to my post for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Work has been too busy for me recently what with catching up after my own break and covering for someone elses. Luckily we have just had a bank holiday and though in theory I had planned lots of crafting I only managed this DT card although I did manage to fit in a few hours at the Great Create in Harrogate where I purchased more craft supplies aided by my beloved.
I am looking forward to getting them out of the bag and having a play.

Enough waffling, this week we are sponsored by Bugaboo and I chose to use Flower Garden. I really enjoyed colouring this image in and plan to do it in a different colour tone soon.
The papers are Craftwork Cards from the Kitsch Collection, the flower started life as a white one and was coloured to match my image.

Here is the sketch Sally created for us to follow this time around

I do hope that you can join in the fun with us,

Thank you for visiting and best wishes
