Thought I'd do another card for this Sketch. The card is Pearlescent so doesn't photograph too well.
Here's this weeks CPS Sketch, I must say that this was one of my quickest cards yet. I already had the Penny Black "Labour of Love" stamped image and was halfway through painting it with Twinkling H2O's.

Here's my take on this week's sketch. I think I may just attempt another one as I'm not 100% happy with this one.
Here's my take on Wendy's second Sketch Challenge. I actually enjoyed this one even though I'm not a Circles Person. I try to avoid them whenever I can, but I might just do more of them now!
I used Papers from Cens Stuff's Ingebors Garden Kit availalable from Scrappin Digi Kreations (SDK). The stamps are once again from the Daisy Display stamps from The Stamp Man, coloured using my Whispers Brush Pens.

And this week's challenge is.... Doodling! "So gel pens at the ready ;) You could doodle a border, maybe some dots, doodle the whole creation or use a doodling stamp if you'd prefer....as always the choice is yours :)" Here's my Bright and Bold take on the challenge.
I Printed the Doodles onto the Yellow Backing Paper and then painted using Twinkling H2O's, which the photo doesn't quite show up, I then reworked the Doodles with a Black Sakura Gel Pen.
'Now I'm not usually a Yellow and Orange kind of person, but I found these stunning papers in Eugenia Bacon's Ecstatic Sunshine Kit and just had to do something with them. This Kit is available from Digital Scrapbook Pages. The Birthday Wishes doodle is from Kirstens Birthday Doodles kit and the flower and frame doodles are from the Gelato Kit both by Kirsten Peters McGrath and are available from Daisie Company.

The Stamps are from the New! Cute Companions stamp range, designed by Jane Nestorenko for Crafters Companion.
I've been really busy this week, done quite a few cards but it's finding the time to the take photo's, crop and save them, and then post.

Above are Templates, Card, Paper, some fabulous scalloped embossed frames, and then a load of general equipment and consumables.
Best buy of the day? I would have to say a Clear Plastic Ruler with Measurements and lines on, and a Metel edge on one side. Bought that for £2.99. Having just been playing with it I can honestly say my Metal rulers are going in the bin. No more cutting to close or chopping bits off, because you can see exactly where your image is.

Well here's my sketch and I decided to use Coloured Card for a change instead of the boring old white which I normally cover with Backing Paper. I matted and layered some backing papers from another newly discovered site, Prima Hybrid. I used Nancy Kubo's So Sweet Paper Collection and the Elephant Image from her Totally Sweet Doodles kit. Nancy's work is really fab, I'm very impressed with her graphics and images and will most definitely be waiting eagerly for her next Kit's.
