MFT Weekly Sketch 208

Saturday, December 27, 2014

I love the PI series and cannot wait to add a few more to my collection :) especially now that they come with dies as I am not the tidiest when it come to cutting our images.
I did not have an oval for this challenge so went with a circle......Ovals are still on my wish list.

Viva la Verve Week 3

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Getting this loaded before we head out for a BBQ with family. I really struggled with this sketch. I think it was the one inch square that was the hardest part for me but I couldn't really think of what to replace it with as normally I hit the flowers but wanted to keep the Christmas look going and no poinsettia die in my stash.
Here is this weeks sketch and my card to follow. Merry Christmas everyone I hope that your day is blessed.

CAS Woodland Creatures Challenge

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

I decided to play along at Splitcoast Stamper CAS challenge today and it was all about Woodland Creatures. I immediately thought deers and those gorgeous winter type trees (cant remember the name of them!) but I dont have any of these stamps on hand, So my choice was this cute guy from Lawn Fawn. I love that this company put out mini stamps and dies. I bought this with the dies for just under ten dollars and love it to bits. Great value in my books and allows that little spend even when the coffers are not full to overflowing LOL
