Friday Sketcher



Here is my card for this weeks Friday Sketcher and I am very pleased with the end result. I stamped and coloured this image (from thestampbarn) a few days ago with Prisma Pencils and Sansodor but my mojo has been lagging a bit and its been sitting here waiting patiently. I found the checkered backing paper whilst tidying and this gave me the inspiration for the card. Papers used are Chatterbox, Rasberry Road & Summer Drigg. The swirl is a sizzix die and all the embellishments are from my stash. I've gone over pieces on the card with a clear sakura pen, if you click on the photo you may pick it up better. Decorated the insert too, but forgot to take a piccie. Must make a mental note to do that in future. Still windy here, last night it was howling. My hubby comes back from Paris today so I've the chores to get done before we pick him up. The one day I wanted to get up early and I slept in till 10am, unusual for me but obviously well needed. Have a good sunday.
