Come play in The Sugar Bowl

Another great sketch from the girls but I had to rotate it to fit my image. I have used a Gorjuss image, coloured with Promarkers. The cardstock is Stampin' Up! as is the sentiment stamp. Papers are Basic Grey Ambrosia. The added element this for this challenges was "punches". I have used a Retro Flower punch and SU 1" circle punch to mat the sentiment.
Fingers crossed tight as it's a fab prize once again.

Busy weekend cybercopping

WOW I managed to actually get some time to craft at the weekend. UK Scrappers were having a cybercrop so I decided to take part and what a great time I had. There were lots of great classes to choose from and although I didn't manage to fit in any challenges there were plenty. These are some of the projects I completed.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and for any comments you may leave

First attempt at brayering

I have watched Barbara Grey loads of times on C&C. She makes it look so easy to create beautiful landscapes that I fancied giving it a go. I have used the Speedball brayer available from Stampin' Up!, a post it note to mask out the sun, Stampin' Up! Real Red ink and Stampin' up! Pocket Silhouettes stamp set. Cardstock is also SU, Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White. The inspiration to use this set and create an easel card came from a fellow demonstrator Jo, whose cards you can find
Thanks Jo and thanks for stopping by my blog and for any comments you may leave.
