Friday Sketcher/Spoonful of Sugar/Stamp Challenge



My mojo seems to be flowing atm and have made this card which meets 3 challenges. I couldn't resist the Friday Sketcher, a fantastic sketch designed by Carole. Spoonful of Sugar is Touchy Feely, lots of different textures on this one and Stamp Challenge theme this week is Pink, so though not intended turned out to be a multi challenge card. Papers are "The Paper Element" and have randomly added swirls to some. Image is Mermaid Anya from The Greeting Farm coloured with Copics. All the other elements on the card are from my stash.


Bearly Mine Designs have launched their new "Designer Inserts Extreme" CD this week. Donna would love me to show you some examples of these stunning inserts and I will be using them on on my cards quite alot, so keep watching. All I can say is, if you love paper CDs and dont always have the time then the "Designer Insert Extreme" disc is just for you and at only £8 is a bargain. You can see more details HERE.
Anyway, must crack on, house to myself for a few hours so am going to take advantage and have some "Me Time". I do use that word quite alot (lol) but any excuse to craft. Have a great week and thanks for looking!
