Reverse Confetti June Sketch

Thursday, June 9, 2016

I thought I would go back to one of the very first stamp sets that I purchased from Reverse Confetti for this sketch :) I love to revisit older stamp sets and challenge myself with them. This stamp set is called Forever Fall and it is one I often come back to especially to embellish cards with. Thanks for dropping by today.

Viva la Verve June Sketch

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

So hard to believe we are now into the middle of the year! I recently won a beautiful stamp set and matching dies for commenting during the latest release. These arrived yesterday and I decided to use them for this first challenge of the month. This set is called Beautiful Things  and at the moment it is discounted (awesome). I am a big fan of the beautiful sentiments and font styles used by Verve.

Here is the sketch for this fortnight

This is my take on the Sketch, the papers I used here are Kaisercraft papers from a pack called Secret Garden. This was my first use of the pad and I went to my local store today to purchase another one as there are so many papers in the set that I love. Thanks for stopping bye, I so appreciate your visit to my blog.

The Challenge #74

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Masculine cards are always a real challenge for me and when I saw this weeks photo at  The Challenge I knew I would enjoy the challenge of coming up with a card for the guys :)
I really don't have too many masculine type images but have one set from stampin up called Guy Greetings so out it came.

 That red really caught my eye as it is one of my very favourite colours and I think a pair of red shoes is a must have in everyone's wardrobe. So it was one feature I wanted to incorporate into my card.Thanks for dropping in, I love and appreciate your visits to my little blog.
