Friday Sketchers

Well it's Friday, bank holiday ahead and the weathers is distinctly least it is here in the Fens, blustery, cloudy and rain looming. But according to the optician this morning Monday is going to be lovely - I certainly hope he is right.

Today there is a fab new sketch from Claudia over at Friday Sketchers, there was also the addition of a colour combo - Blue and Orange.......which I remembered after I had made my pink card.......something of a common trend amongst some of this week it seems. Luckily when I re-visited their blog it sad the colour theme was "optional" so I have stuck with my pink card girls.

My image is one of the fabby new cling stamps from Hero Arts CG105........when Andy (Mr Sir Stampalot) said try them out I was hesitant, but they are great and I am really impressed with the quality and of course they work out rather cheaper than wood mounted. I stamped simply with Hero soft blossom onto linen cardstock and matted up following the sketch with My Minds Eye and Doodlebug DP's. Border cut with Martha Stewart doily lace, leaves with L-Em and flowers with Woodware punches respectively.

Hi Brenda. I'm glad you had a great holiday. I've just been catching up on what you've been up to since I've been on my hols. You've been a very busy bee as always and there are some fantastic cards as always. I love the glimmer mist tutorial. I love GM's and getting messy but it is always interesting to learn some new tips. I also adore your (rather large) new addition to the family, hope he is settling in well.
