Images are Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit
Ribbon from stash
The image has been coloured using brush markers & the little "Wish List" on the left hand side is infact raised using silicone. Sorry my photos are crap at the moment as my camera is heavy & I find it difficult to balance the weight in order to get a good pic.
Ok I'm off again as I've got a workshop to host at 1pm & currently sitting here in PJ's, sipping coffee...

Firstly I do apologise about the lighting whilst taking this picture but it is now extremely dark outside & really didn't want to wait till tomorrow.... already 2 days behind.
Well this week over at Penny Black we were challenged to work with a sketch which I do love... I actually like this one so much that I think it will be used for a lot of this years cards as counted them up today & I have over 100 cards to send out & not a single one made yet... think I may have to raid the challenge cards to get me started but this is such a quick & simple layout that I could really batter these cards out in no time at all.... Thanks so much for that.... Image coloured using brush markers... snow using stickles & hats with cotton wool....
Image & sentiment : Penny Black

Well there is a surprise that we have been given yet another fab sketch over at 2 sketches 4 you set this week by the very talented Laura... how do these girls manage it week after week?
They have us scratching heads over what fab products to use & looking for the most delicious ribbons etc that we have in our stash... no wonder we love them so much.
My card this week has been kept very plain & altered the layout slightly as it is for a very special lady who sadly lost her mum at the weekend & is now due to celebrate her birthday this weekend... Don't think there will be much celebrating going on... For this reason I wanted something that did not say Happy Birthday or anything but thought that these colours were a little bright without being too in your face to help brighten her day...
Papers, ribbons & alpha by Heidi Grace
"4U" & heart rub on by Doodlebug
Flowers, button & gems from my stash
Doodling is with a white Sakura pen & the flowers on the alpha have been highlighted with a Sakura clear glaze pen...
Sorry about the quality of the pic but I'm not great at keeping the camera steady at the moment & the lack of light is unbelievable at the moment... to get this amount of light I have a main light & a spot light on the card... like so many others awoke this morning thinking the ground would be snow covered as forecast but no, just another dull day to look forward to....
Happy crafting wherever you are.
