Hey everyone! It's Saturday again (yay!), so time for a brand new challenge over at Sketch Saturday. As always, we have a fabulous sketch for you to follow, and our sponsor this week is Quixotic Paperie.
For my card, I used this adorable stamp called "Charlotte". Charlotte is part of the Moonlight Whispers range of stamps from an exciting and brand new stamp company - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Don't you just love her hair? Oh, and Elaine over at Quixotic Paperie stocks all of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps (click here), which is fab news for us Brits!
I am also very excited to be a 'Kraftin' Friend' this Saturday over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog, where the challenge this week is "Shades of Autumn". I actually started this card using some lovely autumnal October Afternoon paper, but after colouring Charlotte, I felt that the paper was too busy and overpowered the image, so I tried again and pulled out my unused MME Wild Asparagus 6x6 pack of paper instead. I really love how this card has turned out, especially considering it was quite different to start with!
Now, if you visit me often, you'll know that I don't like adding sentiments to my cards, as I never know who they are going to be given to. However, I'm now lucky enough to have a fantastic set of sentiment stamps in my stash from Whimsy Stamps. The fab sentiment stamp I've used on this card is part of a brand new release Whimsy Circle Postmark Sentiments stamp set which you can see by clicking here. The set contains 6 circular stamps and 2 postmark stamps. They are really fantastic and I'm sure once you see them, you'll want to buy them!
Well, I think that's enough from me for now! Thanks, as ever, for taking the time to pop by and visit me. Sorry I haven't got round to everyone's blogs this week - it's been absolutely manic here! If you fancy popping back tomorrow, I'll have my Sunday Challenge DT cards to show you.
Have a great day everyone!
TTFN! Hugs, Sem x
