Good morning, my lovelies! How are we all on this wonderful Sunday morn?

Today marks the start of challenge #2 over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp! Huge THANKS to all you lovely people who took the time to join us in our first challenge - we are so grateful for all your support and hope that you'll play along again this fortnight! We have another of Maggie's fabulous sketches to follow, and our prize for challenge #2 is a £10 gift voucher from The Craft Barn - huge thanks to Sandy & Isabelle (they know who they are!!).

This card kinda made itself! I only own one set of Nestabilities labels, and this Enchanted Lily stamp was the ONLY image that fitted the die and the layout of the card!! I sanded the Core'dinations cardstock (although I'm not sure you can really see this in the pic!) and distressed and inked up the edges of the patterned papers. I'm really pleased that I finally got to play with my brand new Nestie ribbon tags too! This card will go into my box of children's cards, ready for one of my daughter's friend's upcoming birthdays!

Well, that's it from me folks! (...for this morning at least! I'm STILL trying to finish my card for The Sugar Bowl...grrrr!) Why don't you hop on over to Sunday Sketch & Stamp and join in with this fortnight's challenge - we'd love to see you there!

Hugs, Sem x

  3. Beeeeeautiful card Sem-worth waiting for!
    Love the colours and I REALLY want that nesties ribbon label-it looks just fab!
    Your colouring is great -I use whispers mostly too and when I see how well you work them it reminds me that you don't have to use expensive markers- its the talent that counts (I'd still love copics though-sigh!)
    Must try out the challenge this week- will be v busy for the next two weeks at school though :-O
    Keep those yummy cards coming!
