Sketch and Stash Challenge Wk 12/JCBC Challenge Wk 35

Another brand new week,where did the weekend go? it started off okay and ended with heavy downpours all day Sunday!!! what a miserable day it was, and Rocky Bear did not think much to not going out for his early morning walk!! Thankfully we got a reprive for about an hour at lunch time when we went for a quick walk, the fields were very slippery and i came back caked in mud and soaked from my waist downwards!!!

My dear hubby played in the annual village golf tournament on Friday, and im proud to say he won the competition again. He won it 2 years ago and is the only person to have won it twice. To say he was chuffed is an understatement. We are all proud of him, so well done hun. Love you lots.


So another week and some more challenges. Its week 12 at the Sketch and stamp challenge blog already and this weeks sketch was a dream to work with . Here is my entry, another fathers day card done, thank you ladies.

I slightly cheated this week as i already had this image pre coloured, i have to say these Daisy and Dandelion stamps are a dream to work with and i really should use them more!

The papers were a freebie from one of the crafting magazines, not sure which one, but they are fab especially for freebies!


Another week at the JCBC challenge, and a fabulous sketch from design team member Simone. Again papers are the freebies as above. Im not sure what the image is i received via a RAK if anyone could englighten me i would be very grateful!

Image has been coloured with pro markers and the border punch is my favourite Martha Stewart embossing punch right now!

Rocky Bear is still keeping me on my toes, we went for our morning walk a little later this week and went a little further, im glad to say my baby is worn out and is laying down in the kitchen, giving me a bit of time to catch up with my crafting. I have so missed it!!! hope you all had a good weekend and i will try and get round to visit you all today!
Thank you for all the comments you have left me regarding Rocky Bear, i appreciate each and every one!
Have a good afternoon hugs Linda x
