An Award form Joey

Oh bless ya Joey. I dont deserve an award...OH I didnt only for making you laugh not me blog ROFL MUCH appreciated presh but I not do anything exciting...its me NY resolution to try to though! Thanks again xxxx

Sketch Saturday our choice

The challenge for this week over on Sketch Saturday is to choose any sketch form the last 30. I have chosen Sketch 3...not sure why I did these colours, but fancied a change form my normal pink tones. Its Basic Grey Ambrosia papers, Anita's Cat stamp, then wording from the puter TFL xx oh btw Ive coloured the eyes in orange to tie it in better since the photo

Im such a plonker

In between doing bits and pieces today I thought Id find time to do a challenge. I had a litttle look earlier and opted for the Sketch Saturday, where the challenge is to choose one fo the 30 previous sketches and make a new card. I left the puter for a bit, came back and contonued scrolling through the older posts....or so i thought! Id actually looked through sketch FRIDAY, hence the all in all a waste of time but hey ho I can ise it for my Aunty lol Have a good day all xxxx
Stamp is Personnel Impressions P1263S stamped with Adirondack Cramberry, flowers are Prima Quick pick Hydrangeas and the papers are Basic Grey Sugared TFL

I had to make it A5, so hope I haven't deviated too much. Ive used Basic Grey Euphoria range, Penny Black stamp and ribbon and gems. Great DT cards and great sketch Thank you. Hope you like mine xx

Have a good day all xxxx
