Good Morning peoples!
I hope you are all well?
Well, the Summer holidays are finally here!! great to have my Son home...great not to have to get up early in the morning... but not so great that my crafting time will be limited :(
Before I move on to this weeks Sketch Saturday I wanted to share my FABBY NEWS!!
This week I won $50 over at the Simon Says Stamp challenge!!
HOW AWESOME is that???
there were SO many amazing products to choose from that it took me a WHOLE day to finish my order LOL!!
Thanks Simply Sassy Girls!!!
I've never won anything before in my life!! and then I win 2 things in the same week!!
How lucky am I??
Okay, So on to this weeks Sketch Saturday Challenge...
I have to admit, this weeks sketch caused me a headache... I don't know why?? really its a fabulous sketch and a nice and simple one too!
maybe its just me having a no mojo moment!
Anyway after a WHOLE day... heres what I came up with...
I made this card to give to my Son, for doing so well in his first year of secondary school!
He's had a brilliant year, and we are SO proud of him!
He reminds me SO much of my Son, he's growing his hair now, and he's ever so fussy about it, I even had to straighten it for him when we went to his school awards evening on Wednesday!!LOL!!
I've coloured Luca with Promarkers...
I've created the brown striped paper with a sandstone promarker.
and hole punched some lined paper for the next layer, which I've stuck at an angle, and threaded some twine through the holes.
The horizontal strips are DCWV Rockstar
The 'abc' panel is from a sassafrass stack
The circle is cut from a MME paper set
The brackets are die cuts from the same MME set... as is the tab
The AWESOME sentiment was created on the PC
I've added a punched circle from newspaper
and buttons and paperclips from my stash...
think thats about it!
I've made this card with the following challenges in mind...
Simon Says Stamp - Newspaper (okay, so theres not much of it, but its there!)
Tickled Pink - Spots and Stripes
My Mums Craft Shop - For a Teen
Totally Papercrafts - One for the boys
Thanks for visiting me today, and thanks for all the lovely comments you've been leaving me... it really means alot!
