Friday Sketchers #49

I went to visit my parents last week in the UK and now that I'm back home I've realised I haven't made or posted any birthday cards, so if any of you are reading this, I'm really sorry and the cards will be in the post very shortly. This card that I made for Friday Sketchers is a belated birthday card (I think I should just make belated ones 'cause I always forget, no matter how many times and how many different lists I make!!!) It's another great sketch over on Friday Sketchers. Paper: BasicGrey urban prairie Stamp: Sugar Nellie a good book by Elisabeth Bell available at Funky Kits Accessories: watercolour pencils, various prima flowers, ribbon, silk rose flowers, brads. Thanks for looking.

Stamp with Fun #3

As it was our anniversary on 23rd - four years married, and I haven't got a clue where the time has gone, I thought I'd better make a card for himself. I played along with Stamp with Fun as they have a fabby sketch. I did make the card in time for the day, but I forgot to put it on here DOH!
Anyway, this is the sketch and my attempt at this challenge
Paper: BasicGrey two scoops and core'dination cardstock
Stamp: Sarah Kay first kiss and Stampin' Up! circle of friendship
Ink: Versafine onyx black
Accessories: watercolour pencils, dew drops, lace, prima flower, corner punch.
Thanks for looking.

An Award

I've been given an award from the very talented SarahC (check out her blog, you won't be disappointed) some time back and I feel terrible about not displaying it on my blog.
As I'm going to make more of an effort now blogging, I thought it's about time to get my act together and go through my 'to-do list' which is very, very long.
So, thank you Sarah from the bottom of my heart and I'm sending you hugs and kisses.
