Coffee and cream!

Hello there! Woo hoo! It's a Wednesday evening...it's 7:30pm...I've had dinner and made a card! What's going on I hear you ask! Well, it's half term this week, so I get a welcome break from Brownies and Guides. I love my role, but do need a week off every so often! It's so nice not to be rushing around!

Anyway, I mentioned a card....and here it is....I'm really pleased with this one...

As it's a Wednesday the fab layout comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. If I'm honest I found this sketch a little complicated, but I perservered and I'm pleased with the end result. The image choice and gorgeous flower are for the Penny Black at Allsorts monthly challenge where the theme is "say it with flowers". My colour combo is for two challenges...firstly Simon Says Stamp has a "coffee and cream" colour combo this week (they've also got a DT call this week) and Paper Sundaes have called for masculine colours...I thought the green paper went very well with my browns and cream. Pop by all the blogs mentioned above and see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created - they're fab!

I've got a fun weekend to look forward to...Saturday is Crafternoon tea with the girls...we're all meeting at Lorna's for a homemade afternoon tea on Lorna's vintage china. Then we're having a crafting session in Lorna's fab new craft room...I really need to decide on what craft we're doing this time! I love these days...nothing better than drinking from a bone china teacup and eating delicious cake with your friends! Then on Sunday I'm going to the Make It show in Farnborough to spend lots of pennies! I can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by today,
Wedgie xxx

I found this sketch a bit complicated too LOL!! But I guess it wouldn't be a "challenge" without a few brain-scratchers ;)

I think you did a great job on this one Wedgie - the papers look really fab and I love that little rose! Thanks so much for playing at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
