Cardabilities Sketch # 62

Hello and welcome back to a new Cardabilities Sketch #62.
Another fabulous sketch with endless possibilities!! 
Seeing as it is close to Halloween, I've gone with that theme.
We don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia, but it is a fast growing  trend with the kiddies in my neighbourhood and I have made sure I have some treats for the door knockers (just in case)

Our challenge  is very generously sponsored by SK Digis 

I really wanted a witch hat for my embellie and I didn't have a stamp ( imagine that) that would be suitable so I popped on over to SK Digis and found exactly what I was looking for!
I am relatively new to digi  and I must say it was SO EASY and fun and It would get me using my copics too! I will definitely be doing this again!!!

Head on over to CARDABILITIES and join in, we would love to see how you interpret this sketch!!
There is a DT call too.......here

thanks for popping in :)


Cardabilities # 61

Hello and HAPPY MONDAY!!! time for another Cardabilities Sketch.
Another fabulous sketch and as you can see, I have tweaked it just a little.........
I have rotated...(yes I do always turn it don't I..) anticlockwise
I decided to keep with the rectangle theme and instead of a cluster of embellishments,  I went with an embossed sentiment instead.
I loved making this card.  I made another one with the off cuts of the blue strips.
This Sketch is generously sponsored by
just had a little look and my wish list is long..... lol

go and check out the fabulous DT and see their interpretation of this gorgeous sketch and join in! I love to come visit and see what you have done!
thanks for popping in!

Good Friends

I love that Christie and Patrick have such a special relationship. Christie was 7 when Paddy was born and she was such a good help to me.  As you can imagine 4 children and running my own business, things were very hectic here........ Christie was always around to pick him up and give him a cuddle, feed him and generally love him to bits!  They still have a close relationship today and that makes me really happy.

I have used the gorgeous Carta Bella 12 x 12 pack from Scrapbook Boutique. I think I've made 4 LO from this pack! Love every sheet!!!  Scrapbook Boutique have the instructions on how to make this LO.
