Sketch Saturday Sweetness!

Well Hello there! Thanks for visiting me today!!

I hope you are all well, and have a lovely weekend planned??
Nothing planned here, Hubby has been at work virtually non stop over the summer hols, and it looks like he will be busy for at least the next week..... sigh!!

Anyway... onwards with the show...
We all know what Saturday means don't we...
YEP, another FABBY Sketch Saturday Sketch...

I'll be honest, when I looked at this weeks, I thought I was going to struggle, I'm not usually too good at working with 'wonky' sketches... LOL!! but this came together fairly easily...


The Gorgeous 'Some Odd Girl' Stamp was a Birthday pressie from the gorgeous Jane!!
 (Thanks again Jane!! MWAH!)
You would not believe the bad luck I've had with this stamp... I stamped her out a couple of weeks ago, along with others on the same paper, was colouring another image up, and dropped a purple promarker right on her face!!! Then last week stamped her again, and ended up dropping the paper on the floor where the dog had just come in with muddy paws!!
I thought she was just determined she wasn't going on a card!!
Third time lucky though...phew!!
I created a background paper using Kraft card, which I stamped random cupcake images on... 
(The cupcake stamp came in a set with the 'you're so sweet' sentiment which Jane bought me for last years Birthday!!! Thanks again Jane!!! I think it was elzybells)
I coloured all the little cupcakes with pencils, and added a few dots of enamel accents...
The other papers are MME from various collections... 
except for the black and white dotty strips, which were again made using one of the accessories from the greeting farm spotlight kit.
I stamped another cupcake, coloured with promarkers, and added a little heart on top!
The 'Thanks' sentiment is from CC designs (Amy R summer set)

To finish I added some flowers from my stash, some doodling, and some more enamel accents...

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges....
Simon Says Stamp - Food and Drink
Creative stamp Friends - Create your own background
Hooked on crafts - Sweet treats
The Crafty Pad - Cute and Girly

Thanks so much for visiting!!
