A couple of sketches!

Hello there! Hope you're well and having a fab week so far!

I missed my usual Wednesday post last night because I ran out of time! I held my first cake sale for Marie Curie last night at was a modest affair, but we still managed to raise nearly £50 for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Look at the yummy selection of cakes that we had to choose from....donated by myself, mum, Lorna and some of the lovely Brownies! I've got a cake sale at work next Tuesday followed by our official Blooming tea party on the 9th July.....its all go, go, go....and lots of baking!!

So, I have to catch up with some challenges because I'm running a little behind! First off here is my card for this week's challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenges where they have a lovely sketch challenge this week.

Yes, its really pink and really girlie!! I might have got a bit carried away with the pink papers, but they're all so pretty! This is a Kanban image coloured using my Promarkers. Check out the Cupcake blog to see the gorgeous cards that the DT created this week!

I also have a card for this week's challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday...Arlana has created another corker of a sketch this week and the DT have designed gorgeous cards, pop by their blog to see them all. Here is my card....

Shock horror! I've created a card for a boy without being asked to! Ha, ha! To be honest I actually really enjoyed making thi card, it seemed to fit the sketch so well....and after all that pink on the card above it was nice to use different colours! The stamp is an old Papermaina one and it fits brilliantly with the challenge over at a Passion for Promarkers this week - park life (they want to see things you'll find in a park)! Again, I've coloured my image with my Promarkers. Pop over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see other park life cards!

Right, I'm off to pack for Brownie Pack Holiday! Yes, keep your fingers crossed for no rain in Surrey this weekend because I will be spending lots of time outside with my Brownies! This is an annual weekend trip....and I know how shattered I'm going to be on Monday...I've booked the day off work!!

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx

Great job and thanks for sharing it with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

Your "boy" card is so cute. I was just thinking that it would be perfect for my grandsons birthday. He is just starting to play soccer this fall. My son just got him signed up and he is soooo excited. His sister has been playing for a few years and loves it to. Thanks for all you inspiration. You truely light up my week.
