Friday Sketchers 55

It's been like hard labour this week trying to get anything crafty completed ........ you know, one of those weeks when you never seem to get where you want and it all takes forever.

But, I did at least finish one which will fit in with this weeks Friday Sketchers which has a great sketch by Jacque and you know how much I like sketches and this weeks sponsors are Sir Stampalot so I have no option than to enter. Also, a new one that's just off the ground this week is Stamping for the Weekend where the theme is "Dusk to Dawn" - using the colours Purple and Yellow, two colours that I love together, so all in all I enjoyed the task in hand.

My image is a Stampsmith one I've had for years, they do some really unusual stamps and this little girl sitting in the moon fits the bill just right. I have stamped her simply with Brilliance victorian violet and given the moon a bit of glitz with a quickie glue pen and crystal glitter. The DP's are Doodlebug and Basic Grey and the scallops cut with my Fiskars punch ........ yes, still waiting for the Martha Stewart ones. The scallop mount is cut on Cricut Storybook and the oval tag is from a new set of nestie labels and a flowers and pearls added to finish.

Fantastic stamped image you've used Brenda, , love how you've arranged the little pearls in the corner like that. Yes I'm still waiting for the Doily Lace punch, hopefully next week, then I'll be using it on everything and anything, but I do like the fiskars punch too, though not got that one either yet. It's a beautiful card.
Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge. Good luck and we

hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a great weekend.

Hiya Brenda

It sounds as though we are having the same type of week, I've hardly done anything crafty this week, but now the weekend is here hopefully that will!!!

Thank you so very much for taking part in our brand new challenge and wow!! what a brilliant card you have created too, it is so appropriate for the "Dusk to Dawn" challenge, what a beautiful image and I love the way you have stamped it, it really does look so effective, with a beautiful shimmer and sparkle.

Hi Brenda,
I really like the purple and yellow combination and your stamp is so unique. It's a great card.

I saw your comment on my blog, and yes, that's me on the Circut messageboard. The dog in my Cricut picture is Jake. He's an 18 month old black lab...quite the wild man, but I love him beyond belief! If I could, I have a dozen more!
