Sketch Challenge #1

The coffee morning Christmas card from yesterday inspired me to start a crafty challenge. I have seen sketch challenges on several blogs, so decided it was time to start my own.

This is Challenge #1


The only rule is that it must be a Christmas creation. You can choose your own colour scheme, embellishments and sentiments, but you must stick to the design above.

To get you started, here is my design....

The closing date is Saturday 1st September when challenge #2 will be launched. The winner will receive some Flexmarkers and their card will be added to the Pink Pig Gallery for all to see.

Happy Crafting.

Something to make you smile...

Whoever thought that 6 weeks off school was a good idea, should be made to look after everyone's kids for the full 6 weeks! (rant over)

Today I decided to add a little humour into my card making. 

This was my first attempt using did stamps, but I have to say, I quite like them!

Mum's 60th Birthday

Next week is my mum's 60th Birthday, so I wanted to make a nice understated card to mark the occasion. She has indicated a liking for Popcorn Bear with his bottle of Champers in the past, so I thought this would be the perfect choice!

We celebrate this weekend with the family, so here's hoping for a fabulous night!
