2 IN 1....FRIDAY SKETCHERS and COLOUR CREATE.


Well i wasn't going to put this card onto my Blog,it's not cutie like we've all come to love,but the person this is for will be 90 on Sunday and i didn't think cutie would have been suitable,it's actually for my MIL.
I've covered 2 challenges with this card,i've used the sketch by Carole over at Friday Sketchers,and what a great sketch to work with.
And the other Challenge is a new one thats just started this week Colour Create,where the theme this week is to use the colour pink,green and brown.
The stamp i've used is by Elusive Images,i've stamped the image 4 times so that i could do some decoupage,to colour i've used Promarkers and Prisma's.
The papers are Basic Grey "Sultry",the sentiment "lots of love" is from a freebie set off a magazine.
Ribbon and brads from stash.
Thats about it,i'm going to see if i can get round to visiting your Blogs tonight to see what you've all been up to,put the kettle on ready...lol,
Take care
San xx
