Yule logs and rubbish fashion shows!

I love Wednesdays! It's official! After a hard day's work I get to spend a Wednesday evening with my Brownie pack and my sister's Guide unit....admitedly sometimes they can be little monsters...but evenings like today more than make up for it!

First off we made chocolate yule logs with the Brownies....they made chocolate butter icing and iced swiss rolls, then we made icing decorations to finish of the yule logs! Then the Guides had to make outifts out of rubbish....they had bags, newspapers, wrapping paper, scissors, cellotape and lots of imagination! Once they'd all created an outfit they put on a fashion show for us! It was wonderful - we had Disney carrier bag skirts, high heels made out of the insides of kitchen rolls and tops made out of bin bags!

After all that excitment I then get to come home and make a card for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge - awesome! Arlana's sketch this week is really good and I enjoyed creating this card...

I've turned the sketch upside down, not sure why just happened! This card is for my cousin Sandra who has just got herself a new job and I wanted to say "well done". I've used blue and pink papers from my stash for the background and I made the mini pen pot and pencils from paper scraps. I've embellished with some punched flowers and a tiny bit of glitter!

Right, I'm off for a little blog surfing before bed! Thanks for stopping by today.

What a perfect card Wedgie. I love your little pencils in the pot. Great colors and very nice take on the sketch this week. I am feeling much better this week. I had the flu last week and a couple of weeks before that I had a really bad cold. And to think winter has only just begun...Have a good time with the Brownies.
Hugs, Nancy SSW

I love garbage fashion shows - my community put one on for me when I was getting married.

What a great way to use some scraps - just love the pencils! I also have good intentions to follow a sketch - but either I am missing something or it just won't fit. In the end we gotta do what we gotta do ;) Thanks so much for playing at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
