Friday Sketches Challenge 53

I love this sketch (by Heidi) as it could be as minimal or as elaborate as you like. The DT have made some lovely cards as always. I decided ‘minimal’ used the following card Papers and tools, stamped a very cute image and this is what I came up with

Light Blue folded Card 5”x5”
Royal Blue Card piece 4 ½” x 4 ½”
Blue Flowered Paper from Papermania Venetian Skies 4”x4”
Spellbinders Labels Three Largest die (royal Blue card)
Spellbinders small Ovals Largest die (cream card)
Spellbinders circles smallest die (Light Blue card)
Sizzix Circles #2 smallest cut (royal blue card)
Tiny With Love Peeloff (coloured blue with permanent ink marker)
2 Blue plastic Star buttons from early learning centre

Stamped image (using Adirondack Black ink) is Henry Celebrating Mouse (Party Animals) from Whiff Of Joy purchased from The Craft Barn coloured using copics ( C3, Y08, RV10, RV21 B32) and crystal stickles for icing on Cake, layered oval onto card using 3d foam pads.

I had fun with this card and have decorated inside as well using the PM venetian skies papers
We’ve had glorious weather here starting off the Bank Holiday weekend whatever your plans hope you have a good one!

Thank you for looking

Sorry Its been so long....

...Since I have added anything to my blog, life seemed to have run away with me and crafting got put on hold, and then I had lots of swaps i needed to get finished so I am afraid the blog got left however I have been checking on all the blogs I follow and looking at all your wonderful creations, and hopefully now I am on top of all my swaps, things will get back to some kind of normal!!

Here is a card I did make for last weeks Friday Sketchers (sketch 51 by Carole) I didn't get chance to enter it into the challenge but thought I would share it with all of you anyway

The papers are Basic grey and the stamped image is one of my favorites from Sugar Nellie 'Daisy' and I have coloured her with copics.
Thanks for stopping by hopefully I will back with something else to share with you in a few days.
Take care all hugs Lou xx
