Something bright and cheery for you.....

It's time for another Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge and we had a fabulous sketch from Erin to work with this week. We were also lucky enough to be sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads - I discovered this store a short while ago as they are also sponsoring another DT that I'm on and you really should pay them a visit, Di has some gorgeous images and brings out new - equally fabby - ones all the time!!! Here's my go at Erin's sketch:

I've gone back to some old My Mind's Eye papers which I always fall in love with all over again, whenever I see them (sad I know but in the absence of a man, something's gotta float my boat and I hope you fellow crafters will understand LOL!!) Anyways, I've coloured the image with promarkers and layered up the image and papers with some papermania pink card. The sentiment stamp is from LOTV - I love the way that you can write in the date and year and circle the day of someone's birthday to really personalise it. The crochet flowers and the pom pom trim are both from one of my favourite craft stores, Bunny Zoe's Crafts. Nikki carries some wonderful bits and she's a diamond if you ever want to get hold of anything!! I think that just about covers it.
I'm also going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sorry my posting has appeared a bit later than it should. I scheduled it to appear and it didn't work - which is v unusual cos I do that all the time and I've never had a problem before. Anyway, when I looked cos I'd done it past midnight, the date had obviously already changed but I'd still made it a day later, so if I hadn't checked it would've gone live tomorrow!! What a dope!
I've got lots of cards to show you - and lots of cards to finish making! With my son not being here, I've been crafting to my heart's content and I've also been watercolouring lots of images with distress inks - something I love doing when I've got the time and I find very relaxing. I'm feeling quite proud of some of them, so look forward to showing you.
Well, I'd better go and get on with finishing off those cards! And I'll be along to visit you all later. Make sure to go and visit the SS&S blog to see the other gorgeous DT cards and I hope you'll join in with the challenge. And lastly, please leave me a comment - I really do appreciate it!! Phew - this has turned out to be a pretty long post LOL.....mwah x
