Sketch Saturday 56

This is my card for this weeks Friday Sketch Challenge. I've rotated the sketch as it suited the image.

Well . . . . I'd coloured another stamp which shamefully this was the first time I'd used it & I've had it for over a year!! I still had the same bits out I'd used for the last card hence the DP & lace (sorry a bit boring I know). I'm really loving the copics & can feel another purchase coming on lol!!! I've stamped in the corner using a little heart stamp I found in my stamp drawer using SU Rose Red ink (can you tell it's my favorite SU colour lol!!)

Friday Sketchers 57

Well . . . . I finally succumbed & bought some copics!! I had a go at Rachel's a couple of weeks ago & had decided they weren't for me but I paid a visit to Click-on-Crafts on Thursday JUST!! for some double sided tape & came out with £30 of copics!!! I had a go as soon as I came home & immediately regretted my impulse buy so turned to You Tube for a copic tutorial & came across Suzanne's demo & blog. If any of you are struggling with your copics then this is a must visit. Look at her sidebar for links to tips & tricks.

So . . . . . I went back to the drawing board & voila . . . . a result I'm really pleased with to say I have so few copics (you don't get many for 30 quid lol!!).

I did the Friday sketch from memory hence the bottom DP is a bit short but hopefully it will be accepted.

Cute Card Thursday - Quotations

I can't believe it's been over 3 months since I last update my blog!!! I've had a total lack of Mojo (think I left it in Australia at Easter lol!!) & have struggled to motivate myself even to fulfill orders.
I've kept up with everyones blogs on Google Reader so I know what you've all been up but no sign of my mojo.

I went to a craft morning at Rachels house & had a great time meeting new friends & putting some faces to blogs I'd been visiting. Maddy showed us how to make cute little cupcake embellies out of fimo so I thought I'd have a go when I got home & made the embellishment on the card I've made for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge.
The papers are from Stampin Up & the image is huggybella from Stampinbella. The Happy Birthday has been stamped on fimo using Stayzon & the daisy has been made out of fimo using the technique shown by Maddy last week.

Really enjoyed making this card & hopefully it will be the start of the return on my mojo!!.

Thanks for looking.
