Morning and welcome to sketchie day!

Happy Saturday peeps,

Hope your credit cards aren't lying around somewhere, panting, following yesterdays massive CRAFT DAY on QVC. I saw a few things I would like, from Imagination crafts and I very nearly ordered some 6" square plain and scalloped white cards but ........ it's the P&P that puts me off! It has to be said that I have browsed the wonderful Imagination website on more than one occasion and am STILL very tempted . . . . see it here

And, considering I seldom win much, by a very spooky coincidens I have won the blog candy over at the Craft Barn - which was offered when the blog reached 400 followers - thanks guys, so much. It's a mystery prize but apparently includes some Marianne stencils - woo hoo indeed, will post a piccie when  it arrives

Anyhoo, with my pal Lauren having a little break from Craftbubble I am keeping her seat warm until her return and today would be her turn to present the sketchie to the other members of the Craft Mad & Loving It group . . . so now it has fallen to me to do so in her place. I chose to tease my fellow crafters with the twist of "ANIMALS!"

So, without further ado here is my sketch and also the card I made from it. If you want to see the rest of the Design Teams fabulous take on my sketch then do pop over to Craftbubble here and check it out - both Karen and Rosie have done a fabulous job with my sketch - thanks ladies.

And my card, using this sketch

Materials used:
  • White card and matching envelope
  • Animal print card by DCWV
  • Brown card - supplier unknown
  • Gold and bronze card from the DCWV Shimmer metallics stack
  • Papermania sentiment stamped on to white card
  • Penny Black image stamped on to white card using memento tuxedo black ink
  • Pro Markers
  • Atyou Spica glitter pens
  • Small brown and orange brads
  • Retro punch in medium and small
Hope you'll all have a fabulous weekend, however you are planning to spend it.
