Here is Dawns amazing sketch number 47, remember you can do what you like with the sketch as long as its still visable, and you have fun.
One of our DT's Wendi is very kindly donating some gorgeous blog candy this week as the prize.
Here is my card, afraid the colours haven't come out too well (night photography) but hey after next week the days start to get longer again grrrrrreat,
Aswell as using Dawns sketch from ICS I have used the colour scheme from Stampin for the weekend that wanted us to use blue and brown Stamp something asked for a winter wonderland, Just Magnolia wanted a Christmas card, Creative inspirations said no red or green and Simon Says said let it snow.
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with last weeks cards were amazing.

We are sponsered this week by Squigglefly .com Asley is giving the winner 3 wonderfull images
I know, I'm getting a bit predictable, another easel card,but I wanted to see how an A5 one turned out, this is for a freind of mine its her birthday on 20th Dec so i always seem to rush her card as I'm busy with last minute preps, so this year she's got a good one.
Not keen on these dark nights for photo shots, even with my daylight bulb, might ask Santa for a photo box for Christmas or see if hubby can make me one, he's pretty handy.
The cards you made last week were brilliant, I hope you'll join us again this week at ICS

This card sort of fell together I chose my paper I wanted to use and the rest just happened not very often that happens I can tell you. The sketch is from Everybody Art and I love it. The recipe is from Lili of the valley- 3 papers , never quite sure if you count your layering, so I did.
2 Stamps- A new one from LOTV and the sentiment was from a Little Claire set, 1 type of embellishment , I chose brads, I dont think the flowers count as I made them using the papers.
Everybody art Sketch
Hope to be back on Friday

I went to the NEC and shopped till I dropped, It was the best I'd been to, in my opinion, the roads wasn't to bad it took three and a half hours with a loo and coffee stop. Set off at six in the morning and got home just after nine at night, had to work today to make up for having yesterday off and still havn't found homes for all my new goodies.
I started this card before I went so I've managed to get it finished tonight.
It's for a challenge I've never done before called Posh Designs Scrapbook Store its challenges are set on a Tuesday and is Bi-weekly, The hostess is the amazing Dawn B from Inspirational Card Sketches so its bound to be great.
This is the sketch I have used with an old stamp I've had for quite a while and carn't remember where its from, I've used a new card blank from craftwork cards,stickles, nesties, cuttlebug embossing folder and a rub on.
Got to get off now some kind sole has just started letting off fireworks, at eleven o clock :( and my dogs are getting spooked.
Hope to be back tomorrow after Mum has treated me to one of her amazing roast dinners, Hubby is off fishing so its a me me me day.

We have been sponsered this week by Digistamp Boutique They have the most amazing images to choose from,( i know because they gave us all an image to make our DT cards with and it took me over an hour to decide which one.lol) the winner this week gets a gift coupon for $15.00 dollars , so what are you waiting for.
The image I chose was Becky at Christmas,isn't she just adorable, perfect for a teenage girl I thought, I just resized her in photoshop and printed her off, (if you print your image off the day before you need it, you can use your copics and the ink wont bleed from your printer, or you could heat set it if your in a hurry,) I glittered the baubles and fairy wings, then matted with me nesties. Thanks to everyone that played with us last week. Hope you have fun .

I used the wonderful sketch over at Cupcake Crafts, Daring asked for our favorite things some of mine are on this card, Sugar Nellie stamp, glitter and gems, Creative Card Crew wanted snowflakes, Simon Says asked for all that sparkles, bit difficult to see in this photo but the gems and glitter really sparkle. I've also used K&Co papers , cuttlebug embossing, copics and a bit of lace.

Hi all, Dawn has done it again another fantastic sketch, it was a dream to use and one I shall use again and again. Here is the sketch #40 and the usual rules apply you can twist, flip or mirror it anything as long as we can still see the sketch. We are generously being sponsered by The Pixie Cottage please pop over to their site they have some amazing stamps and loads of inspiration on their blog from their super talented team.
This is my card for the sketch, thought I'd have a brake from Christmas cards, I've used a Lili of the valley stamp, coloured with my copics, matted with my nesties. I used K&Co papers and bazill basics, the top was punched with a Fiskars threading water border punch, used a ribbon slider with ribbon from stash , punched a flower with an EK and layered a couple of prima flowers on top, used a bead cap and crystal brad with a butterfly charm. I popped afew mini pink crystals around the centre image. Please pop over to ICS Challenge Blog and have a go , you never know you might be the lucky one to win a stamp.
