Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

Evening all, a bit of a late post today as I've been out this evening. Yes, I know it's a school night! I went with Anika, Lorna and Jim to a comedy's a monthly thing and I've wanted to go for ages but always seem to be busy. My original plans for this evening fell through, so I decided to gather my friends and head off for some giggles....except when we got there we found only two other people waiting! It seems that the world cup is the favoured viewing at the moment and since there were the same number of audience members as comedians they decided to cancel it!

Ok, I know I'm a day late, but here is my post for this week's challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday! After all the fun I had on their blog hop last week, I was eager to pop back this week for the new challenge. I was delighted when I popped by all the DT blogs yesterday to discover I'd won the prize draw on Melissa's blog - how exciting!

As well as the new sketch this week SSW are also looking for three new DT members, so I decided to give it a go! I've wanted to be part of a DT for a while now, I really want to be able to inspire fellow crafters and become more involved with this brilliant community.

So, here is my first take on their sketch. I thought I'd start with one of my favourite!

I've used the fab freebie image provided by this week's sponsor Katy at KLM Digi Stamps - meet Weeder! I coloured Weeder in using my watercolour pencils.

I've used a combination of pinks and yellows in paper and ribbon, along with a punched flower.

This is the card that I will enter into the challenge at SSW this week.

I then decided to swap to my other favourite colour - purple! For this card I flipped the sketch around and used some new flower stamps that I have treated myself to. It's a brilliant pack full of different flowers and containers, you can combine them to make your own displays - fab!

For my last card I flipped the sketch again, and this time decided to try a male card - as you know cards for men are not my greatest love because I can't really use pink or purple! I've used different shades of blue, along with a stamped car image and a sentiment I created on my computer.

I had a lot of fun using the same sketch in different ways. All too often I'll use a sketch once and never think to try it out in a different way. I've got my fingers crossed that the ladies over at SSW like my work.

Thanks for stopping by today, I think I better head off to bed soon!
