Saturday Sketch Challenge and Birthday/Christmas card weekly challenge Wk 4/

Saturday Sketch Challenge
I am afraid I don't know what these papers ae, the image is a penny black one sent to me by one of my dear friends, i have coloured it in with my aquarelle pencils and then covered it in glossy highlights with some stickles highlights. You may need to double click on the image to get the detail. My camera is so out of date!! I never get a nice crisp clear image, sorry.




BIRTHDAY/CHRISTMAS CARD CHALLENGE 4

Can not believe its week 4 already, this weeks sketch is by the wonderful go over to the birthday/christmas challenge blog to see all the DT wonderful samples. I am sure it will provide you with plenty of inspiration.




My christmas card is using a topper downloaded from the wonderful Paulas Pollycraft Designs downloadable site. If you have not seen her wonderful work it is well worth a visit. The papers are from a DCWV christmas glittered stack. Gems and glass baubles are froms tock.






I apologise for the poor photo, my camera works even less in the dark, even with the flash on. My birthday card is again using a topper from the Pollycraft downloads. I have used some Anna Griffin papers which I adore and some of the prima essentials flowers that were sent to me by my fantastic friend Jill. Hugs to you Jill as I know you are feeling a little low honey.
