Sketch and Stash Challenge Wk

Well ladies i am on a roll this week, i am enjoying taking part in some challenges and keeping my blog up to date. Im off on holiday this Saturday for a week in Majorca, can't tell you all how much im looking forward to it. So although my blog is being updated regularly this week, it will be quiet here from Sunday. I am scheduling some posts, but only time will tell if they actually work.

Sketch and Stash Challenge Week 10
I have been wanting to take part in this challenge since the wonderful Becky started it. I have used some K & Co papers and some downloaded papers (whose name excapes me). The image is one of the fabulous Rachelle Miller ones. How adorable this cute cat is.
As you all know ive started to decorate the inside of my cards but im still getting to grips with it, im still a beginner!!

So this is the sketch this week, why don't you go take a look for yourself.

Marias fabulous sketch

My lovely friend Maria has put a sketch on her blog free to anyone to use. So i made this card following her fab sketch below. I have used some papers that i downloaded along with this gorgeous sugar nellie image, this is one of my favourites from funkykits. The flowers have been glittered and the leaves glossy accented. I hope you like this card.

Again, my attempt at decorating the inside of my card.

I love a bit of bling as you know!

So have a go at this sketch yourself, im sure you'll enjoy using it as much as i did.

So thats all from me today on the crafting front.
I had some fabulous news this afternoon i won some blog candy over on the Victoriacaseartdesigns.com blog. I am thrilled as i love Victorias fab designs. If you havn't seen them go over and take a look im sure you'll fall in love with her designs when you see them.
I would like to thank those of you who have left get well wishes to my dad, i really appreciate them. He is back home and enjoying some peace and quiet i think! It is strange not having him around here, but it has meant that i've managed to do some crafting.
Well ladies, hope uou all have an enjoyable evening, back tomorrow maybe with another challenge card.
Hugs Linda x
