Sketch Time!

Hello campers, how are you today?

I have a little card that I'd like to share with you today, this is based on a wonderful old sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.....

...isn't it a cute sketch? Check out the SSW blog to see how the DT have used this sketch on their fab cards!

I hope you like the sentiment...its a bit long, but I think its fab! It comes from a book of sayings that I've got on display in my room at mum's place. I love flipping through it, as they all make me smile!

Now, I've been practising with my Promarkers again and created this card with this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers in mind. This week they have a colour combo theme - blue and brown (or you can opt for pink and brown). Pop over to their blog and see all their gorgeous creations. While I'm thinking about my Promakers I'd love to ask you all some advice - what card and ink do you use when stamping images that you'll colour with your Promarkers? Any advice will be gratefully recieved!

One last thing I have to share with you all is my latest bake.....well it wouldn't be one of my posts without a little cake action!! These are lemon cupcakes made with lemon juice and rind - they taste delicious! I wanted to make pretty cakes and so spent a bit of time on my icing - flooding the cake first and then adding the detail!
Thanks for popping by my blog today, its lovely to read your comments. Don't forget to pop back on Saturday to see my first official challenge at Sweet Stampin....I'm soooo excited!!!

Hi Wedgie, Love your card this week what a great image and your design papers and colours work perfectly. Great job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week and good luck.

P.S Your baking looks lovely as usual re stamping images well I hardly stamp now days I mostly use digital images. The one of the best to buy is Black Ink call Memento Tuxedo Black and it doesn't run or smudge and dries quickly. You can also heat set your ink that you have just stamped if you have a heat embossing gun or use you blow wave drier for your hair.
Hope this helps.

Oh Wedgie, I think this is one of my favorites that you have made. Great color scheme and I love your image. In fact, I think she looks like you. That is what I thought of first when I saw your card. You, baking away in your kitchen. And your cupcakes look divine! Hope you and your mom are doing well. Take Care!!
Hugs, Nancy
