Friday Sketch Challenge #74

Good Morning,
and if the weather men have got it right it's gonna be a scorcher!
Better get the sun cream out, stay safe everyone.

Here is the new sketch over at Friday Sketch Challenge

This challenge we have a super sponsor Flat Friends Boutique' you can find their store here
I have used The Happy Couple which I coloured with markers:

The image and sentiment was printed in the center of a piece of white card which I matted onto a piece of black card. This was then mounted onto a scalloped 6 x 6 card blank.

The segments of the sketch were cut on the silhouette and were added to the card using foam pads. The flowers were die cut in parchment paper and card candi was added to the centers. I die cut some of the candi to give varying sizes, the large one is the original size.

Have a great day everyone!

Photo Inspiration @ MAWTT

Today see's the start of a new challenge over at MAWTT
This challenge we have a lovely Sponsor.

Prize is a Ronnie the Robot Set of Stamps

Our Colour theme are these Nice Bright Summery Colours. 

summer brights

Heres my card:

The papers are some I've had in my stash for a good few years, they are from a pack of 12 x 12 papers that I brought and never cut in to. All has been matted onto some orange card that I also found in the box. The image is from DigiStamp Boutique and called Alf Cooling Off. Markers were used to colour the image with a touch of chalk. Bakers twine and a computer generated sentiment was added for that finishing touch.

Can't wait to see your bright summery creations! The challenge runs for 2 weeks over the summer period so plenty of time to get your entries in!

Have a great day!

Sunday Sketch & Stamp #211

Good Morning,
& what a lovely sunny one it is.

I am hosting this week's new challenge over at 
I need to let you know of a few changes to the challenge - instead of a weekly sketch we will be moving to a fortnightly challenge.
In addition we will be picking our "DT Top Three" favorite rather than having one winner selected by

Here is my sketch:

Hope you likey!
If you do why not get crafting and join in this fortnights challenge, the more the merrier.
This is my interpretation: 

I had a rummage in my box of papers & found these super ones printed from the Chelsie didital paper pack from Sassy Designs & guess what, they have a sale on at the moment, well worth a look.
The doiley was cut on the silhouette it was free download & can be found here. Again well worth a look.
Both the image & the sentiment (plus mats) were printed and cut using the silhouette.
The image is from The Stamp Fairy & can be found here, they also have a sale on at the mo. I have used markers to colour in the image & added some glossy accents to the nose & some glamour dust to the stars.

Have a lovely day
