Evening, its bitterly cold here today but at least we havn't had the snow yet!!!! I gt this new stamp last week and its perfect for the Truly Scrumptious challenge as they gave us a gorgeous sketch and the theme was "fly away", also Pile it on wanted us to use animals this week, and Cute Daisy May asked something for the boys, while Papertake Weekly said anything goes.
The stamp is from Penny Black , papers are K&Co , nesties, jelly tots and ribbon from stash.

ICS no 60

Hi its sketch #60 over at ICS Dawn has given us a great one again, this is certainly going into my file to keep.
Dawn has also provided the candy this week as well.
I've made a thank you card for a new friend of mine Pat, she was kind enough to drive four of us to the NEC last week, which is about 125 miles away, so no mean feat.
I've used a Whimsy stamps dog, colored with copics, K&Co paper and a couple of paw brads.
Looking forward to see what you do with this sketch.
Take care

Hi there, I thought I'd use my little manga boy tonight, The sugar bowls sketch looked a bit masculine to me and they wanted stars so thought he'd fit the bill. Also Charisma cardz wanted something for the kids so he fitted that one as well.

I coloured him with copics, papers were a freebie, bazill card , new die cutter, hotp big brad and rub on, some buttons from stash.

Shalln't be back till the weekend, off out for tea tomorrow then its the NEC so Friday I'll be finding new homes for my new stash, goodness knows where my draws are full.

Hiya, hope you had a great weekend, I surely did. Sue and I got to The Hobby House, spent far to much, but just can't resist when you see things in the fresh, the great thing when your best friend is also a crafter is that you can "go halfs" thats when you buy something like a pad of papers pay half each and then share them, you get twice as much stash that way and luckaly we both like the same stuff.
I've made this card for a couple of challenges Crafts 4 Eternity that gave us this sketch wanted green and yellow with string or wool. and SCSC that said Anything Goes.
I used K&Co papers , big brad and rub on, saying was on a sticker.
Hope to be back tomorrow
