My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Club

Good morning and a lovely one it is too. The sun is shining and its a warm day for January. I am sat here looking at all my daffodils and tulips which are up and a crocus which burst into flower last week ! Surely it can't be right ?

Anyway, I decided to make a card for fun yesterday ! It's not very often I get a chance to make a card just for fun so I moved all my DT stuff aside and got to work ! I just had to join in with the Sketch Challenge over at the MFT Wednesday Sketch Club over at Splitcoasters.

I do wish I could take better photographs of my cards :( I have a super duper camera and I've tried everything I know and taken them in various places and positions and still they don't look as good as everyone elses photos.

I used the MFT "a la mode" stamp "Knit Happens" and stamped it this time in Memento "London Fog" ink as I wanted the ink to match the papers, grey. I coloured her with Copics.

The DP's are from a Tilda stack I bought at the NEC a while ago. They are beautiful. I machine stitched them all.

I used the First Place Award Die-Namics for my sentiment.

Right, off to sort the girls out. They decided to watch the TV and play first thing this morning and are only just getting dressed and having showers ! Nothing like a lazy Sunday.
Have a super day and thank's for your visit.
