Visiting an Old Friend.....

Hello there...Happy Monday! I hope you've had a lovely day!

Soooo....I enter a lot of challenges and visit a lot of challenge blogs...we all know that....and I seem to go through phases of which ones I visit regularly. One challenge blog that I used to visit every Wednesday without fail, but one that I haven't visited in ages is Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The ladies over there are all so talented and friendly....I couldn't resist popping by this evening to see what they've been creating.

Here is their fab sketch for this week....

 
Plus they have a lovely theme of celebrating women....I decided to make a card that celebrates female friendship....I love to make cakes and cards for my friends "just beacause" and so when I saw this cute freebie image everything fell into place!
 
 
Isn't she sweet?? Just put some glasses on her and it could be me!! The image is from Sliekje Digi Stamps where Angelique creates super cute images. The girl in the image does have legs...but I wanted to make her a bit smaller and so I cut them off - I hope Angelique doesn't mind!!
 
I've gone with pinks and soft pastel colours for this card to make it really girly, but added a bit of blue to make my image stand out. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and added a little sparkle to the cupcake with my Stickles. I've also added my sentiment in a banner.
 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Love to Create - thinking of you
The Pink Elephant - banners
Top Tip Tuesday - good with food
 
My Tip this fortnight - the ribbon on my card actaully belong's to my sister's new PJs!! Its the ribbon loops that are there to keep your clothes on the hanger. Now before you get the wrong idea, I didn't just cut off the ribbon without her knowing....but she did decide she didn't need the ribbon as she wouldn't be hanging up her PJs and so cut it off and gave it to me! What a fab way to add to my ribbon stash for free!! So what are you waiting for...go check your clothes for excess ribbon!!
 
 
Pop by all the blogs mentioned to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created to inspire us!
 
Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx

Oh welcome back Wedgie! We love it when you play along with us. This is a terrific image and I do see the resemblance to your pretty face! I grinned about the ribbon you used - I do the same thing because it just seems a waste of good ribbon to not use them off of clothes! I knew we were kindred spirits and that proves it! Beautifully done as always. So glad to have you back here in our SSW family!
Hugs,
Sharon :)
