Hurrah - it's the weekend!!!

Hi there,

and welcome to Saturday - hope you all have action packed Saturday's planned!

It's sketchie day over on craftbubble's Craft Mad & Loving It - this week it's the turn of Karen to present the sketch. So here's my card and her sketch ..........

Materials used:
  • 6" square scalloped white card and envelope
  • Black card - one square very slightly smaller than the scalloped card and one circle
  • Two pieces of patterned paper - a a freebie from Card Making and Papercraft, plus one panel which was also part of the paper pack
  • Die cut flowers in two sizes (two of each), the dies were part of the candy from the Craft Barn
  • Pearl brad for the centre of the flower
  • 6 black "faux" gemstones
  • Faux white lace and cream grosgrain ribbon, coloured with a Pro Marker - blossom
And here is Karen's sketch - her twist is "FLOWERS"

And then last, but not least, I started working on a card for the simplicity blog where the challenge was: a border, an image and some bling. I made the card and photographed it and then re-read the challenge and realised that the border has to be stamped too AND we weren't to use a sentiment! BUM - still, ANOTHER Christmas card for my collection - hope you like it anyway . . .

Materials used:
  • White card and envelope
  • Green card edged with Martha Stewart double scallop punch
  • Penny Black image and sentiment stamped in archival ink - jet black and coloured with Atyou Spica glitter pens
  • Highlighted with Platinum stickles
Happy Saturday everyone - hope it's a good one - looking forward to reading your comments too.

And it's Happy Birthday to Georgie (CraftingGinaG) today too - hope it's a good one!

Both cards are great. I do love that PB stamp and it looks great on the clean white card with the red border to set it off.

Your flower card is fabulous. Lx
