My time to Craft Challenge week 35 - Beckys sketch and Friday Sketchers

Its Wednesday already where has the week gone? i hope your all having better weather than us, its been fairly miserable all week. Which reflects the mood of my lovely Rocky Bear. He doesn't like walking in the rain, bless him, so he is sleeping more than normal!! I am definitely coming back as a dog in my next life!!!!

Have made two cards this morning, the first time i've had to craft this week. I have down a couple of sketch challenges, so that i didn't have to think too hard!!! always an easy option with my limited mojo at the moment!!

Now its almost my blogaversary and birthday, so i am going to post some blog candy to celebrate this weekend. I am struggling as what to offer, there is so many gorgeous candy's up for grabs just now, what is going to tempt you all???!!! I seriously need to put my thinking cap on.


What a great sketch this week, another fabulous sketch to work too, and i have used my penny black image, that has been coloured for weeks. I have been using up some of the free papers that i have collected, and thought this one was perfect!

Have use the Martha Steward embossed border punch and highlighted with stickles and liquid pearls. The daffodil has been glossy accented.

This week is a fantastic sketch by my lovely friend Becky, it was a dream to work with. I have used one of the lovely Rachelle Miller images, and highlighted the flowers with pearls and stickles glitter.

The image has been coloured with my pro markers. Papers were the remainder of my freebies from a recent magazine. I have to say they were fabulous to work with too.
Im off to stamp up some of my new stamps and to hopefully get my DT work up to date Hope you all have a great day, i apologise for not visiting all your lovely blogs this week, but will catch up at the weekend.
Hugs for now Linda x
