Papertake Weekly - Dawny's Sketch

What a beautiful day again today !  So warm and sunny !  Let's hope it lasts for the Easter holidays.

Well, I had a fantastic time on Saturday at the NEC meeting up with lots and lots of my gorgeous friends.  I was so excited to finally meet Sandie who I speak to most days than not on MSN ! and also Heather and Kim Costello.  We had a fabulous time and can't wait to do it all over again in November.  Start saving those pennies now !!

I spent far too much money as you do but I am very pleased with my new goodies and couldn't wait to start using them and my first DT card to do was for Papertake Weekly. 

Our new challenge is "Dawny's Sketch"


We are being sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamp 

 I bought from the Hobby House stamp some paper bags. At the time I didn't know what I would use them for but an idea sprang to mind when I saw this simple sketch.

The DP's are BasicGrey "Piccadilly" which are lovely and very "Spring"

The image is by Lili of the Valley and is called "Easter Sweeties".  This has been coloured with Copics and ProMarkers on the new Ranger/Tim Holtz speciality stamping card which I must say gets a bit of getting used to !  Perhaps its different if you use his markers, I am yet to find out !

Here is a close up of that cutie image :

The Easter sentiment stamp is also from Lili of the Valley

All I need to do now is find some eggs to fill it with for my girls.

I hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing your take on Dawny's sketch.

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great sunny Tuesday !
