A Sketch from Fetch a Sketch!


Now that title is a real mouthful.  I started this card last night and finished it off today.  I had a right good play with some new Papermania 12 by 12 kraft card sheets from The Glitterpot.  It is fab.  If you ever need craft goodies quickly they are fab - received it next day.  I've been using my Marianne designs dies - discovered how to emboss with them too last night - Abit slow I know.  Really chuffed I can do that now.  My distress ink pad has been out too. Here's the sketch I followed fromFetch a sketch challenge blog.
And now my card:
Quite different for me.
I used: Kraft card-card base, flower etc, marianne dies, Funky Hand leaf paper - Freebie paper, digi image Funkyhand Papercraft factory cdrom(coloured with pencils & promarkers), ribbon, vintage photo distress ink and sentiment from another freebie sheet. My card fitted quite a few challenges this time.

Well I've got leek & potato soup and tomato soup cooking on the hob from scratch so hopefully one of them will settle my upset stomach.  Hope they taste good. Also some more news I came in the top 3 with my halloween sweetie bag at Nutcrafters challenge blog and I won Christmas Crafting with my xmas card - wild rose papers and image - whoopee!  Have a lovely night.

Love Debs x
