Friday Sketchers

Hello everyone. It feels like ages since I last posted...much longer than a week. I think I spend far to much time blog-hopping and not enough time crafting!

Today, we have had lots of snow here. Got up this morning and the place was covered! It then started to rain this afternoon so we all were covered in horrible sluch on the way home from school. And, if it decides to be freezing temps tonight then we will be sliding all over the place tomorrow and lots of bruised bums if I know my lot, lol!

Anyway, this card is for my neighbours daughter. It's her birthday today and I only finished the card about an hour ago. I didn't want to give her one out of my box because she would probably have seen them all since she loves to look at what I've made. So I was determined to make her a new one. I also gave her a wee gift bag filled with lots of craft goodies to give her a chance to make her own cards - lots of card blanks, ribbons, gems, stickers, etc. She seemed to be really pleased and the bag is one that she can alter herself.

So, The image is Reflective by Elisabeth Bell for Sugar Nellie. I have coloured it with watercolour pencils and added some stickles and flower soft to it. The papers are my new Forever Friends ones. Card stock from stash. The sentiment is done on the Bug with oval Nesties and...lo and behold... a gold peel-off sticker!!! The printer decided to run out of ink tonight so these came in really handy. The flowers is one from my stash, then medium and small retro punched flowers and a flower brad in the centre. I have added lots of pink and frosted lace stickles to the flower. I also stitched round the image and the other strip of paper with my sewing machine!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Friday Sketchers - Fantastic Sketch
2. Stamp With Fun - Stitch
3. Lots To Do - Use a Machine (Bug and Sewing Machine)

Thanks for taking the time to look and if you have a minute please leave me a comment so I can return the visit
