Sweet Sketch Wednesday and Crafty Cardmakers

Hello folks - hope you are having a good weekend! Back to work for me on Monday :( so will have to catch up with the housework tomorrow (cos I haven't done much housework this week - had family time instead!)

My card today is the card I made for Eleri to give to her friend at her party on Thursday.

The image is from Bugaboo Stamps (just noticed that there is a 50% off everything sale til Aug 10th), and I have coloured her with Promarkers and Copic Spicas. The papers are the freebie pad from the Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine (again - sorry!). I have followed this week's sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday - I loved using this one. I have used three punched flowers so am also entering the Crafty Cardmakers challenge. Then there is just some added ribbon, papermania gem flowers and some extra gems. The sentiment is a digi from Pollycrafts - I changed the shape from oval to circle in my graphics package and then coloured it with Promarkers and Copic Spicas again to match the image.

Eleri and I have been working on a door hanger for her bedroom, and we are really pleased with it so I hope to show that to you soon.

Thanks for looking - and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Love, Andrea xx
