Friday Sketch Challenge #13 by Bron

Good evening, afternoon or morning - whereever you may be. This afternoon I am showing you the new sketch by Bron over at Friday Sketch Challenge. This is Bron's first sketch and it is a gem. I love it. I turned it on it's side so that I could do this image from Spesch Stamps. This is an image we had last Easter but I have taken the egg out of the image so it can be a friendship image not an Easter image. What do you think...??? It is cute right. LOL. Spesch Stamps are also offering 3 digital images to a random winner of this challenge so please play along for your chance to win some stamps.

Fairy Birthday Wishes

Good morning everyone. How are all the Copic lovers out there....??? Hope we are all well. It is still very hot here in Australia - at least where I am - good old Melbourne. Phew...!!! Bring on Winter. I am sick of this heat.

Today I bring you a card made with the gorgeous Wishes from Some Odd Girl - she is one of the Nouveau Girls and can be purchased in store at Mad for Markers here. I loved her the minute I saw her and knew right away that I had to buy her. Ain't she the bomb. LOL. Ok being pathetic I know but I do love this stamp.

This card was made by following the sketch at The Sweet Stop. I made the 'ribbon' by sewing a length of crepe paper down the middle and pulling one of the threads to ruffle it. I love how it turned out.

Stamp with Fun #152

Hello everyone. Wow I have been so slack. Found other interests and crafts to do other than card making and scrapbooking so that has kept me really occupied, but I managed to get this done for Stamp With Fun #152 with this wonderful sketch. I found these stamps on Etsy just yesterday. This is Bibi Balloons and is by MayzyArt. I have purchased three more already and in the process of deciding which challenge to use them for - if I can get them done soon of course.

You can find Mayzy's blog here.

Who wants to build a house...??

Oh lordy...!!! I have been looking for templates for house to 'build' or should I say make for Christmas this year (yes I am getting a bit ahead of myself). If you are interested in approximately 123 templates then go here to Mel Stampz blog and check them out. There are a couple that don't work but most you can download a template. Woot. I am super excited.

FSC #12

Good afternoon my darlings. Hope we are all doing super duper well. Being Friday is it Friday Sketch Challenge day and this fortnight we have another fabulous sketch by Genevieve. What a super super sketch. I love it. In fact I actually made two cards with it. Will show you the other next week but today I have this first birthday card for the little boy in your life. This image is from Mo Manning and I have had it coloured for a while but was trying to find the right project for him and this is it. Hope you like. Pop on over to the FSC blog to see the rest of the teams work. Enjoy your weekend.

The Blues

Good morning everyone. I am here bringing you another Friday post for Mad for Markers to show you my favourite colour (at the moment). I love blues and light brown/creams together.
