I hope everyone enjoyed the fabulous weather we had at the weekend. Yippeee! My day off and it was bathed in glorious sunshine. I spent most of Sunday morning crafting with my mum whilst drinking copious mugs of tea and listening to the soothing sounds of a contented spaniel snoring his head off!
Anyway, this week over at Just Magnolia there challenge is a sketch based one, and I had great fun using it. The other twist was that it had to be a Thank You card. I have been desperate to use Tilda in Spring Rain so I set to it. The only problem I faced was that once I had coloured her and cut her out with the largest oval Nestie I found that to fit all the other elements of the sketch in I needed to use an 8x8" card. I used the fabulous MME papers from the Quite Contrary range, lots of Prima bling and of course my trusty ProMarkers. I also used the gorgeous Hero Arts 'Big Flower Pattern' stamps to create my layered flowers. These are fast becoming a firm favourite of mine.
I will also be entering this card over at Quixotic Paperie as there challenge is 'Heavy Metal' and I used a fab metal Umbrella charm to add a bit of fun.
Over at 'Totally Gorjuss' the theme is to include a charm so I will be entering over there as well.
