A last minute Challenge Card - Friends and Friday Sketchers

Its Friday morning again and its still raining!!! can you believe it supposeably summer time and its been miserable nearly all week. Unfortunately my moods are largely influenced by the weather, so i too have felt miserable. We are off on holiday tomorrow, i can't wait for some sunshine!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, with hopefully some good weather and plenty of time for crafting.

I have managed to make a couple of cards before i go. The first one is for this weeks Whiff of Joy challenge. This weeks its themed Friends.

I feel totally blessed to have so made so many lovely friends through my blogging. How can someone you have never met bring such warmth and friendship into your life and fill spaces in your heart others can not? i don't know but truly they have, so thank you to you all, you mean so much to me. I made this card with you all in mind.


One of my favourite whiff of joy stamps and some gorgeous DCWV glittered papers.

I have used my Go Create die cut frame "pointy" i love these dies.

Flowers are punch from the retro punch and leaves from the Sizzix flower and branches set, highlighted with stickles glue.

Sentiment printed on my computer, and made up myself. Faux stitching and liquid pearls on the sentiment frame.

The insdie decorated with more DCWV papers.

Continuing with the friendship theme, i made this card using some of those fabulous hotp papers and i believe a MFT image.

Pink and green one of my favourite colour combinations, and the Martha Stewart punch which is one of my favourites just now. Thank you Dawny for highlighting this wonderful punch!Image colours with pro markers. Ribbon and gems from stash.

The inside of my card decorated using the nestabilities frame and some paper pleating. Again the delectable Martha Stewar border punch.

HOTP sentiment.

So ladies, i think this may very well be the last from me until after my holidays. Hoping you all have a fabulous week, thank you to all ofyou who bother to leave such sweet comments, i appreciate each and every one.

Hugs for now Linda x

Friday Sketchers Challenge

Hello again, just a quick add on. I had to make a card for my sons 18th birthday card so have used Friday Sketchers Challenge Sketch for it.

Not sure what the image is, but the papers are a combination of DCWV text prints stack and Making Memories Cheeky Collection - Emery.
This was a quick make, so hope it is okay!
That definitely is all from me, have a lovely week my lovelies. Linda x
