First Viva La Verve Sketch for 2018

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

What a beautiful sketch to start the year off with! I had so not used this beautiful set in a while and love that the flowers always look good coloured or die cut out of patterned paper. Here is the sketch that is up for Janurary

This is my card using the lovely Stamp Set Beautiful Things. After I had put the card together I noticed that my DP was upside down...Ooops

Seize the Birthday First Challenge for 2018

Friday, January 5, 2018

I so need to make a stash of birthday cards and cannot think of a better way of doing it! Play some birthday challenges. This first challenge for 2018 is anything goes, I have just finished making a card for a beautiful soul and thought I would play along with the challenge.

I have to say I think this is one of my most favourite floral sets of all times. Created by Dawn from Papertrey ink, it is a stunning set. I then used some sentiments from Altenew, I love it when I dont feel compelled to use all products from one company and instead mix them up.
So here is my creation, thanks so very much for dropping by, I delight in your visits :)

So love the last digital release done by Verve <3 I  purchased the Winter Peace Set and plan to add a few more to my little collection. The fonts are's all stunning
Here is the sketch for this month

I used some long hoarded Kaiser Craft papers to make my card and the little snowflake is from a Stampin up set that I recently purchased. Love this digital set lots and think I may have to start work on another Christmas card using this set!

Reverse Confetti SFYTT

Loved the background on this challenge and decided to cut into my hoarded paper pad from RC for this one. Here is the sketch for this month...........

Well I had three attempts at colouring this reindeer as each time I tried, my beloved copic markers oozed ink all over the place. I am not sure why they are doing this? They have been sitting for quite some time so maybe this is the problem. Here is my take on this months sketch. Thanks for dropping by today.
