Papertake Weekly - Dawny's Sketch #26

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well. Kids are all back to school tomorrow and...fingers crossed...nursery too. That's been a bit of a nightmare actually. Steven started of fantastic at nursery and then he had quite a bad bump on the head and things went really downhill. At first, he wanted me to stay with him then, he wouldn't go at all. He just kept getting really upset. So, we've had a few weeks off and tomorrow we are going to start from scratch again. He has a Halloween party after nursery in the schol hall so hopefully he will be looking forward to that and will settle ok.
Anyway, over on Papertake Weekly this week, there is another of Dawny's fabulous sketches. The cards from the DT were as always gorgeous and gave lots of inspiration. This one was quite a bit of work but I really like the end result.

The image is Stampavie, a Gillian Roberts design. It is coloured with watercolour pencils. THe snowflake and the circle were cut on the Bug with nesties and the circle put in the snowflakes embossing folder. I have used chalk on the snowflakes and also stickles and, I have used chalks over the coloured image to make it sparkle a bit. The ribbon, papers and sentiment are from my stash. I have used a Martha Stewart punch and I also used Kim's new toy to add lots of bling to the ribbon.

The image is one I just had to have, it is so gorgeous. I just love his trainers sticking out the bottom and Mary reminds me so much of when Kim was in Primary one and she played Mary in the school nativity. Whatever happened to my wee darling, lol!

The snowflake son this card were a nightmare. First they wouldn't cut. Then, when they did...I stickled them at 3pm and they are still flaming wet now!! So, I went to my mum's to 'borrow' one of hers and it was a wee bit like Blue Peter..."Here's one I made earlier"!LOL

Kim's new toy is some sort of gem applicator gun thing - can't remember what it's called - but it's great fun. You pick up the gem, heat it for a wee second and the stick it to anything you like. She was even trying to bling the laptop on Saturday night. I got her it when we were at the SECC on Saturday. Had a great day and bought a few goodies too. Some ribbon, some charms, sticky tape, foam pads, a couple of stamps and some buttons and plaques to make some nameplates. Got Kim's toy, treated myself to a new cross stitch - big but gorgeous ( will take me forever to do it) - and a CuttleKids for Wee Steven - in the hope he'll leave my Bug alone!!!

Anyway, I am off to bed with my book now. I have been playing Guitar Hero on Jacks DS the last few nights and that game addictive or what...I am in desperate need of an early night.

Hope you like the card
