Allsorts Week #37 - A Sketch

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well. I am much better today - just a wee bit of a sore throat now. I am most definitely cheered up too - I was the lucky winner of Paula's fab candy. I am delighted. Thanks Paula. Here's a wee pic of what I won.

Gorjuss, ehh!
Also, I know I posted this before but, I was also lucky enough to receive it again.

I have been presented with it from the lovely Rachel. I love to be given these - even if I am useless at passing them on, lol. I think that it lets you know that other people appreciate you. Thanks Rachel.

And at last, onto the card...

This one's been done following the brilliant sketch over at Allsorts this week where they are also having a DT call. I have used Willow with Flower Basket from Whiff of Joy Spring 2009 Stamp Kit. She has been coloured with Twinkling H2Os for her blouse, head and waistband, flowers and shoes. Watercolour pencils for her hair and basket. And, copics for her trousers and skin. The paper is a double-sided one from All My Memories. I used my mums new distressing tool for the first time - will need to add one to my wishlist (funny for someone who doesn't like distressing, ehh). The bit white cardstock has been through the Bug with the Stylised Flowers embossing folder and then I used crystal ice stickles over the embossed pattern and also round the punched flowers. I used pink stickles on her bracelet and round the pink flowers on the dp. The sentiment is also from WOJ. Brads from my stash.
Here's another pic because I can't decide which is the best, lol. Think this one shows all the sparkle better. Really pleased with the end result of this one.

OK. Think that's everything. Mum just told me that the gorgeous new City Girl stamps are on the WOJ website. Can't wait to get my paws on these wee darlins, lol.

Thanks for taking the time to look. Please leave me a wee comment so I can come and visit you.
