Friday Sketch Challenge #20

Hi there, were having thunder storms here and the power keeps flickering so I'm hoping it doesn't go off, we seem to get power cuts for the least little thing here, a couple of years ago it went off because a plane flew over. We have a super sponsor this week at friday sketch challenge  and thats Mayzy from Mayzy Art, she very kindly gave the DT an image each to work from, I chose Mama Yoga, she has the most amazing designs to choose from.
Here is this fortnights sketch, isn't it great, I really enjoyed using this one, looking forward to seeing what you make. 

I've coloured her with copics, used Delish, First edition and Bazill papers, Marrianne Doily die, EK corner punch, Martha stewart border punch, LOTV sentiment stamp and some paper flowers from my stash.

I hope you've had a great weekend, our weather has been all over the place, really hot then torrential rain, you don't know what to wear. My Son and DIL have been with us for the weekend, to celebrate Fathers Day. and it's  been the best weekend for ages.
This next weekend it's my nephews daughter, Libby (I think that makes her my great niece)  first birthday, I can't believe how quick its gone, she is perfect the most gorgeous little girl ever, she's just started walking and I could watch her for hours, there's no chance of getting any work done when she's about.
Here she is with Great Granddad

I've made her an Easel card using one of Mo's gorgeous images, I coloured with copics, used Kitch papers,
paper roses, dotty ribbon, marriane die cut leaves, pearls, wired pearl clusters, Nesties and an EK border punch, the sentiment I generated on the computer.
Can't wait till the party!!!

The Paper Shelter #68

Hi there, I can't believe how quick this year is going, I actually saw a sign outside a restaurant  today saying "Book now for Christmas"
I know some people like to be organised but that's just a tad too early, especially since the owner was stood outside in his shorts and vest (not a pretty sight, I didn't know you could get a builders bum in Bermuda shorts).

 Well a really easy one for you this week at The Paper Shelter the challenge is "Anything Goes"
so lets see what your making this week.
I have used Fancy Psychedelic Love this digi reminds of Summer Concerts, I decided to colour it in shades of one colour. 
I used cream satin ribbon, nesties, K & Co paper and pearls.

Friday Sketch Challenge #19

Hi there, well the summer weather didn't last very long, and how come it always starts to rain when its time to walk my dogs, seriously thinking of investing in some doggy wellies, I'm sure I've seen some on the internet.

I'd just like to apologise if you got a weird email from me, I'm afraid I was hacked and everyone in my contacts got one, sorry.

We are being sponsored this fortnight by Tracey from spesch stamps,
I'm using Beachball Girl by Jessica isn't she lovely.
And here is your sketch,
 I decided to use patriotic colours, the text paper is  the song "We do like to be beside the seaside" I've had this stamp for years but this is only the second time its seen ink, the clouds are part of my new stash I bought from the Lincoln Sincerely Yours a couple of weeks ago they are dies from Memory box, ribbon and gems from my stash. Image is coloured with copics.

I'm entering this in the following;
