Sunday Sketch Challenge #169


Good Morning,

I must say I am getting quite used to being at home and not rushing off to work every morning. I've now been off just over 4 weeks and have more surgery planned on the 20th August. I have been told that I will be off work for at least 4 weeks after my next op and will probably not be able to craft for a while:( I have been busy this last week trying to get all my DT cards made and scheduled up till the middle of September, I've never been so organised!! I hope Mr Blogger behaves now!!!

I must apologise for not commenting on your beautiful creations of late.
But let me reassure you I have been to visit you all.
I am hoping to take my laptop in with me, fingers crossed they'll let me use it.

There's a new challenge starting today over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp with this super sketch by the lovely Ann Marie for us to follow

Here's my card following the sketch:
I have used a  image from Tiddly Inks - Wryn Blooms which I coloured with Copics & chalks. The papers are from The Shabby Princess from 2 different collections in the free download section. In a graphics programme I picked the colour from the backing paper to print off a piece of plain yellow paper. I used this to cut out a circle which I embossed to mat on top of the Spellbinders fancy circle die that was distressed with Tea Dye distress ink. The image was then cut out and mounted on top of the circle. The sentiment is one I've had printed off a while, I think it was from a Do crafts CD.
Why not hop on over to the main challenge blog for more details of this week's challenge and some great inspiration from my teamies.

Hope all goes well with your surgery hun and hope the internet works in the hospital as my other half is finding it very frustrating - it comes and goes as it pleases and you are limited to what sites you can visit too! Have a lovely day. Hugs, Claire x

  3. Beautiful card, really cute image and love the image popped on top of the frame.
