I hope you are well and have been enjoying some sunshine over the last week. I really am a summer person and so I'm soooo pleased to see the sun shining - and so is my garden!
Today I am off to the Foodie Festival on Clapham Common with my best friend Becca (my last Birthday treat!), we're looking forward to the workshops and all the sampling! Then we're being joined by my sister Lorna and we are off to celebrate Becca's Birthday! In fact I'm about to share Becca's Birthday card with you...so I really hope she doesn't read this blog post between it going live at 8am and me giving her the card when I see her today!
This week we have a lovely sketch for you at Sweet Stampin....
and this is how I used the sketch....
I think this image is great and its perfect for Becca. I have coloured it with my Promarkers and I have added some green sparkle with my Stickles. Now you might ask why I gave my lady a moss coloured feather boa...well originally it was pink and then I remembered who I was making the card for and decided Becca would never have a pink feather boa! So I added a green layer on top of my pink.....and came up with moss green!! Whoops!
Head over to the Sweet Stampin challenge blog to see how the other Team Abi ladies used this sketch - their cards are all gorgeous! While you're there you can find out about the fab prizes that our sponsors are providing.....
I'd also like the enter this card in the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - all that glitters
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Now if I'm going to a foodie festival today, I thought it was only fair that I left you with a sweet treat...
This is my fab new trio, which I love - its so pretty - and a rather nice piece of lemon and raisin cake. Susan - I hope this keeps you going until I'm back from the foodie festival!!
Thanks for popping by today,
I really appreciate all your lovely comments.
