Sketch Saturday

Thanks to having lost my internet connection most of both Saturday and Sunday I managed to make a couple of challenge cards. This one is for Sketch Saturday - a sketch by Terry which was an absolute dream to follow.


I used one of my new Tilda's, (didn't think when I bought them at the NEC that I wouldn't get to use them until Easter was practically over - I should engage brain more often!!)
Tilda is coloured with distress inks, cut with oval nesties and mounted on Magnolia's paper Somebunny loves you, on which I also stamped the sentiment by Personal Impressions. The dp is some SU sent to me by the fabulous Martine as part of my birthday rak.The three cross strips are cut with a Friskars punch and wrapped in a blue scalloped edged ribbon.  The flower is Papirloftet, the pearls from the Hobby House and the leaves cut with a Carla Craft punch.

I shall be back later - I have a couple of awards to collect and publish and..............
guess what was waiting for me when I returned from the UK..............some of the Sweetpea Stamps that I ordered back in at the very beginning of February - where on earth have they been for two months???? -  (the January order has still not arrived).
The lovely, generous Lynette from SweetPea stamps  told me to offer them as blog candy if they ever showed up, so I will be putting them up as blog candy very soon, hopefully later today.
