Monday Sketch Challenge


Monday Sketch Challenge



The sketch

Good Monday Morning Ladies,

I hope that you are all well and ready for the week ahead, have any of you got anything nice planned this week?  Not much going on here, apart from an intense search for somewhere for our meet up, any suggestions welcome. No really want to get this organised this week, so fingers crossed.

What to you think of this weeks Sketch?  I think it's fairly simple and I thought that some of you might be making Valentine cards, but if not this card can easily be adapted for any occasion, Anniversary or Easter as Michele suggested when I was trying to decide which sketch last night.
I went for the Valentine's theme, I'm usually scrambling to make one last minute, so super organised this year!  
The papers are 'Sending Love' ( patterned) and 'Real Red' both Stampin Up, the dies are ' Love Notes' Thinlets diex, I love them because of that lovely heart border and they also have cute little envelopes hat you die cut and make up, that coordinate with the matching stamps "Sealed With Love" that has tiny little sentiments  ' I love you', 'Lovely you lots' and 'hugs and kisses', that fit on a little card to go in envelopes, so well thought out. 

Well that's all from me for now, I will pop back later to see what you are all up to.

Love and hugs to all,

Sandra

    Lovely card Sandra. I'm definitely thinking Easter Eggs looking at this weeks sketch!

    I'm hoping work won't be too busy today so I have some energy tonight to start my challenge card. I need to go to the Post Office the B&Q as I need a very bright light bulb for my craft room-the one in there is awful. Don't know how hubby managed to work in there.

    2. Try artists daylight bulbs, they last longer than any others I have bought. I find them on the artists section in the Range. The light is amazing, just like a bright sunny day and the colours you work with are the same as taking them outside. xxx

  2. Hello Everyone, very dark here, rain is on its way.

    Sandra love the card, I do not a make valentines card, but as Michele says think Easter will be my theme also.

    Michele try and get a daylight bulb , couldn't work without mine, I have one in my desk lamp, not only are they better for colour, but it's better for your eyes.

    Work again today, urgent repair to do first, then white, which are my favourite colour to make. Have a good day all, hugs Lilian

  9. Hi Sandra and all.

    Just love the card you've made with the great sketch this week Sandra. I'm on to Mother's Day cards at the moment for the shop. We sold very few Easter cards last year so I'm just going to put the ones that were left over, out again.

    Been out to Iceland and the butchers this morning so have a full fridge and freezer again for a while. I felt soo tempted walking down the chocolate aisle and forced myself to look the other way. I hope when I get on the scales this week it will all be worth it.
    Just about to tidy up as the window cleaner is due tomorrow for his monthly visit and he kindly does the insides as well. I don't want him to think I'm a mucky divil. Mad isn't it?

    Sue, hope your feeling a lot better today.
    Lynda, how are the exercises going?
    Margaret. I hope Alan gets on ok with the Consultant this afternoon.
    Cheryl. I hope you have time to get in your Craft room this week.

    Good luck everyone that's entered into Sues blog to win a die.
    Love Valxxx

    1. Hi Val
      Hope it was worth it not being tempted by the chocolate isle. I obviously have no will power. Must make more of an effort to lose a bit of weight.

    2. Thank you Val, who was a good girl & walked past the chocolate, well done. Alan will have a replacement in abput 3 mths, so well pleased.xxx

  10. Hi Sandra
    Love the red and white theme of your card. Don't make Valentines cards nor Easter cards any more either. So I might put my thinking cap on. Don't hold your breath though will you. Look forward to seeing both you and Sue tomorrow.

  11. Hi Sandra and all in the Café today.
    I love your card today Sandra, that edging die cut is lovely, as are the rest of that set and the matching stamps which finish off the die cuts beautifully, and I can vouch for how pretty the papers are too. I have got my thinking cap on for the meet up x
    Mum, I hope Pop gets on well this afternoon, fingers crossed for a short wait before he gets his hips done. Love to both of you xxxx
    Michele, I agree with the others about getting a daylight bulb, you won't ever go back to a normal one again if you do, they are well worth every penny x
    Janet, I hope you are having a good safe journey home.
    Cheryl, good luck at the dentist today x
    Karen good luck at the dentist tomorrow x
    Lilian, I hope you get the urgent work out of the way quickly so you can enjoy the white goods x
    Brenda, predictive text is a nightmare isn't it! I don't always read my comment after it has been published, it's lucky that you did. I hope you are well on the way to a full recovery now x
    I have a couple of cards to make including one for Chris jnr who is two next week, which is another "where has the time gone" moments! I hope to make a start on his card later on, diggers, tractors and similar will be the theme so guess who will be spending some time trawling Pinterest 😊
    Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for all in need. Take care xx

  12. Hi Sandra and all today in the cafe' .
    Gorgeous Valentine's card, love the red and white together. Sketch look fine. Not giving Valentine's or making Easter cards but might do a Mother's day one. Many thinking caps on tihi
    Hope you all have a good day as possible and have some time for crafting.
    Went out for a coffee and a little walk this morning, leg giving me pain and have been told to rest it but... having a scan on the 19th. House looking alright so will have some lunch now and watch CSI before starting on a card later, at least get some cutting out.
    Love and warm hugs to you all, Maria xxx

    1. Hi Maria
      Make sure you rest that leg. Perhaps not so much walking until you know what's what.

      Take care 🤗🤗🤗xx

    Congratulations Sandra on you win on Sue's blog.
    Sorry wasn't in yesterday all the challenge cards were all gorgeous well done everyone. Sandra lovely card today & good sketch for this week I don't make Valentines or Easter cards but will try something else. I had foot clinic today she said about my feet being puffy & swollen & I should see the doctor so I made a appointment when I came out but i can't see her until the 22nd Feb good job it's not urgent HaHa. Got 💉Test tomorrow & exercise class mid day. I still haven't finished craft room yet but I have been sorting through the thing I got from Margaret so much card & card toppers & lot of new HD sets,so will take a lot to charity shop as I don't want them. There ar punches as well but I can't use them because RA in my hands they look new. They are to heavy to put on EBay .
    I'm off to my bed love Lynda xx
