Sketch Saturday

Two cards today I must be on a roll lol. This one is for the Sketch Saturday challenge. I have used a PB stamp, coloured with Copics and papers from Pink Petticoat. The borders around the text look a bit skew wiff but I think its the way I have taken the photo cos in real life they are straight, honest lol.

Papertake Dawny's Sketch

This weeks PTW challenge is a great first sketch by Dawny. I have used a FF stamp, really must get some more of these, coloured with Copics. The papers are from a set called High Hopes by Rina Kroes and I downloaded them from Scrapbook Elements.

I've Been Challenged

By the lovely Elaine. The challenge is to make a card using only Pink Petticoat stuff and then to pass the challenge onto someone else. I think this is a great idea because it got me to use an image set I forgot I had. Right then, I have used the image from the Blooming Doodles set, coloured with Copics, and the papers are from the Little Big Dots paper set.

The person I would like to pass this challenge onto is Paul. I know he has a few PP sets and I always admire the cards he makes with them. So over to you Paul.

I made this card for the Dutch Dare challenge which this week was a sketch and then realised I could also use it for the MTTC challenge, which was to do a personalised card and the CCT challenge which was to use stars on your card. I have used a PB clear stamp coloured as usual with Copics, the papers are from Pink Petticoat and the greeting was printed on the PC.

My Card For Today

Have made this card for a friends birthday, she doesn't craft or do computers so there's no worries about her popping in and seeing it. I have coloured a FF stamp with Copics and added some glamour dust to the balloon. The papers are a freebie from Cuddly Buddly and the sentiment has been printed on the PC. The scallop circle has been cut using Nesties and I have cuttlebugged it with the Swiss Dots folder.

Forever Friends.


I have made these cards for two challenges the PTW challenge, which this week is Firsts, first birthday, first anniversary etc, so I decided to make a new baby card for a friends daughter who is expecting her first baby and seeing as she doesn't know what she's having I've made one of each. The other challenge is MTTC challenge which is Teddies so I think the card speaks for its self. The stamp is Forever friends and has been coloured with Copics, not sure where the papers have come from I found them in my paper box. Greetings have been printed on the PC.
