Good Morning Ladies,
Oh isn't it lovely being able to function normally without being out of breath and feeling like you need a shower every half hour. The slightly cooler weather has been welcomed by me!
How are you all finding it?
I won't keep you waiting, here we go with this weeks cards...……
Michele saw 'Santa's Belt' as soon as she saw this weeks Sketch, so that is the look she went for for her Challenge card, using a Scallop die to create the belt and a Label die for the Buckle.
Such a fun card Michele, thanks for taking part. xxx
Margaret designed two cards for the Sketch Challenge, an Anniversary card using the same colours as I did and a fantastic Festive card too, using some lovely Christmas papers and the sentiment is stamped and die cut with a 'Lots of Labels' die.
It's so lovely having you back in the challenges my lovely, we missed you. xxx
Lilian has been playing with Fantasy Film and 'Angelina Fibres' this week to make some Fairy wings, I like most of you have some of both of these in my craft stash, it really was a huge 'thing' back in the day! Anyway, Lilian used it to die cut that beautiful butterfly. I have to say Lilian those papers may be old but my goodness they are gorgeous!
I bet that at least one, maybe two or three of us will be routing around looking for out Fantasy Film!!
Thank you for the inspiration my lovely. xxx
Lynda made a lovely Christmas card for this Sketch Challenge, ooh Lynda I do love those papers you have used, such a lovely shade of blue with little holly leaves all over. Lynda used a beautiful border die to create that pretty border down the side and topped it with a piece of lovely blue and white lace,.
A lovely card Lynda thank you so much for taking part. xxx
Val has designed a beautiful Christmas card for this Sketch Challenge, using a Sue Wilson Poinsettia Border die and a beautiful label die which Val has topped with a die cut circle with the '25th Dec' die cut. I absolutely adore that gorgeous shade of red that you have used Val, some reds can look really cheap, (in my opinion), SU has a red called Cherry Cobbler, which is a similar shade to the one you have used, I love it and your card. xxx
Two amazing Blue and white Christmas cards from Karen for this weeks challenge, I love that shade of Blue Karen, your cards are stunning.
Here is Karen's description for you:
Card 2: "Here’s another cc It’s the leftovers from yesterday’s card with an old Spellbinder snowflakes die and SW’s Mini Expressions sentiment"
Thank you so much for taking part Karen, your cards are both amazing. xxx
Maria, I absolutely love this card, the paper you have used is beautiful and I love that gorgeous green that you have used with it. Your card would make anyone feel better.
Thank you so much for taking part and for the lovely cards you sent for me to use while I am away .xxx
Janet has also made two fabulous festive cards for this weeks sketch, the first card is in traditional Christmas colours with a lovely die cut tree as the focal point.
The second card is so different and I absolutely love it Janet, that bare branch tree is such a lovely stamp and it works perfectly for both a background and main element stamp. The magic touch is that piece is hessian/jute, it ties in with the trees, the kraft card and everything.
Thank you so much for two lovely cards. xxx
Sue has designed a Cute Christmas card for this weeks Sketch Challenge, Sue made this card with a selection of magazine freebies believe it or not! Those papers are gorgeous Sue, so is that cute topper.
Sue, you don't need me to tell you have much I love having your cards on display on a Sunday, thank you so much for taking part again this week my lovely xxx
Hopefully a craft room day for me, I have a lot to organise before I go away next week
Any preferences for this weeks challenge??
Have a lovely Sunday lovelies,
Love a big squidgy hugs
