Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

First things first, I promised to do a draw from last weeks comments and send something to the person who came out of the draw and that was ..........

If you can send me your address Heide I will send you something from my recent trip to the Lili of the Valley shop soon.

So onto this weeks entry over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

I decided to use a curved die to seperate my 2 papers but I am not sure that it worked, 
Anyway onto the details

Papers - Craftwork Cards Al Fresco
Image - Kate Shopping from Digi Stamp Boutique
Sentiment - Dreamees
Flowers punched with EK success daisy punches
Bling - local craft shop - just realised I need to put some bling in the middle of the flower on the image oops!

Can't believe we are only a month away from Christmas, I wish I was as ahead with the gifts as I am with the cards.

Finally Happy Thanksgiving to all my visitors from the USA

In the nick of time

Here is my card for this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 challenge. I made the top 3 with my card entry last week, it was lovely to be chosen thank you.

I have used a Lili of the Valley image from the Party and Cake Art pad which I added colour to with my copics.
  My papers are from the Refreshers collection from Craftwork Cards, and I made the bow by using on of the sheets from  their bow pads as a template.
The ribbon is from a reel I bought from the Great Northern Papercrafts show when it was still at the Royal Armouries, so my friend Kath will know how long ago that is lol!

When I clicked on to post tonight I noticed that I have had 10000 page views on my blog so I'll do a draw from all my comments for this card and send a little gift to whoevers name comes out of the pot as a thank you for your support for my blog.

More Blush

It's another lovely sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 this week and here's my card using it

This is the sketch

I still had the Basic Grey Blush papers on my desk from the layout I had made so I teamed them up with this lovely topper from one of the Lili of the Valley artpads which I have embellished with Flower Soft..
Flowers and red card are from American Crafts.
Die cut corners are Cheery Lynn and the sentiment is a polka doodles stamp.

Thank you for visiting

For Remembrance Sunday

A simple layout using Basic Grey papers from the blush range, a postcard of the John Mc Crae poem In Flanders Fields and a photo of his grave at Wimereux Communal Cemetery in the Pas-de-Calais.It's an unusual cemetery in that all the gravestones lie flat because of the sandy soil.

Back with a bit of orange

I've been missing in action from blogging for a few weeks, too much work equals too tired for crafting on an evening / can't be bothered to come upstairs to the craft room.

Anyway after a lovely day out yesterday on a tour of Lili of the Valley and then Craftwork Cards (who were open for a sale day with lots of lovely bargains to be had) I came home and after Strictly managed to make this card for this weeks challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

This is the sketch

And the twist because it is the last challenge of the month is to use some orange.

Supplies are as follows

Image - Elisabeth Bell from The Hobby House
Papers - Potting Shed pad from Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - American Crafts
Leaf Punch and Flowers - Woodware
Ribbon, lace and pearls from stash
