Good Morning Ladies
Welcome to our favourite day of the week, I just love to see how you all interpret the sketch or challenge each week.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, I have been cold, we even lit the fire last night. Today's weather forecast has a yellow warning for rain with possible localised flooding. I think I may get some craft time in.
I have been trying to upload a video since Thursday, showcasing some of the new Stampin'Up! Goodies but the flaming internet keeps cutting out, so far it's got to 52%, 75% and 80%, so fingers crossed we might get past ,90% tonight!! I am really trying to grow my YouTube channel, so the rubbish internet is a real hindrance!!
Dannii has a facebook page and we featured this week's sketch challenge on there too, I will feature a card that a lovel lady called Steph from Dannii's group made for the challenge too.
Anyway let's get on with the show.......
Two amazing cards from Janet this week, the first uses Sue Wilson's Apron Die set, the colour theme you have chosen works perfectly.
Your second card is fantastic, I love that pretty frame you have used to showcase that pretty flourish and the bicycle, love that vintage background paper too.
Two lovely cards Janet, thank you so very much for taking part.
Lilian, omg I really love your card my lovely, it may be a combination of two challenges but my goodness it was worth waiting a week for. The background you have created has so much texture, the colours work so perfectly with the Anemones in your topper, which is so pretty. I am so pleased that you managed to take part this week, I absolutely love seeing your cards each week.
Thank you so much for taking part.
Michele has had a really busy week and still managed to make four challenge cards, which is amazing. Oh I'm not sure which one is my favourite, I love the vintage train card and the ond with the gifts on, the paper on that card is really pretty.
Thank you so much Michele, I hope Sunday turns out to be a lot more relaxed than yesterday day was, I hope that you weren't at the hospital with your Father in law too late last night my lovely, particularly as you had an early start with the Car Boot Sale.
Karen's Challenge card made for a 'Guinness' lover, it's testament to the brand that you just need to see the harp to know it's Guinness, I know that Michele's Phil would really appreciate this card! (Michele you could borrow Karen's idea for next year. Thank you so much for taking part Karen.
Lynda has made a beautiful challenge card for this week's Sketch Challenge, here is Lynda's description......
"Paper from Heartfelt Creations 'all Glammed Up' 3D embossing folder, Crafter' Companion Poppy stamp from stash coloured with water colour pencils xx"
I love the background of your card too Lynda, that paper is ok lovely.
Thank you for taking part sweetheart.
Danielle's sketch card is so pretty, made with papers from the "Sweet Soiree" suite and the coordinating Memories and More pack, I love how you have offset the square of vellum behind your Sentiment piece. A truly lovely challenge card.
Thank you so much for taking part Danielle.
Cheryl, your Sketch Challenge card is beautiful, I have these papers (they were free in a magazine last year), you have showcased the papers perfectly with this card, I may use your idea as I haven't used mine yet.
Thank you so much for taking part in this week's sketch challenge.
Wow Val, such a stunning challenge card from you this week, I love your stamped background (Val wanted to add a handmade background for last week's challenge)!
That stamped background looks like a printed patterned paper and works beautifully with the colour theme of your card, which is one of the main benefits of creating your own .
Your floral centrepiece is so pretty, is it Sue Wilson's Daisy die and stamp? That pretty little Dragonfly is a lovely touch too.
Thank you so much for taking part Val, I really do appreciate it.
Margaret has made a stunning challenge card for us this week using the Stampin'Up!
'Wild About Flowers' stamp set for the topper part of the card, the background features 'Delightful Daisy' DSP, which Margaret has combined with a soft pastel peach paper. Adding the blue as a contrast colour was a genius touch and it works perfectly.
Thank you so much for taking part this week Margaret.
Steph (Stoker) from Dannii's FB group made this absolutely amazing card for this week's Sketch Challenge, she used Stampin'Up! 'Petal Pallette' papers to create her card, using one of the Memories and More cards as the focal element of the card. A strip of rhinestones down the left side of the card finish the card perfectly.
Steph thank you so much for taking part in this week's challenge, I really hope that you are able to join in each week my lovely.
Another fantastic display of cards ladies, you are amazing!!!
I am off into my craft room to think about a challenge for next week, hmmmm do I go for Sketch, TicTacToe, Colour challenge or a Theme???
Which would you prefer??
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, I hope it stays dry wherever you are, a few degrees warmer would be nice too!
Sending love and hugs to each and every one of you,
