Morning and welcome to the weekend dear readers

Hi there,

Welcome to Saturday on this fine Easter weekend - how's it shaping up for you? Well, I hope. It's looking fab here in sunny Florida with temperatures set to exceed 90f/32c!! YIKES, where's my sunscreen?

Saturdays are sketchie day over on Craft Mad & Loving It and today's sketch has been designed and set by Clare, in her position as Guest Design Team Member. Her added twist this week is "SHOW YOUR METAL" . . .  I immediately thought DCWV "Rock Star" stack only to find that Clare herself had used a sheet from this stack . . . thought about a plan B but decided to stick with my first idea - check it out.

Clare's sketch

My take of the theme of Show your metal
Materials used:
  • White C6 card and envelope
  • White panel of Bristol board on to which my Recollections image and sentiment were inked using memento tuxedo black
  • Copic markers to colour and Sakura stardust glitter pens to highlight
  • White panel of Bristol board, coloured with a co-ordinating copic marker and then edged with a Martha Stewart punch
  • DCWV "Rock Star" card panel with corners rounded
  • Three metallic purple paper flowers with silver brads in their centres
  • Stix2 double sided tape to which silver leaf was applied
  • Three self adhesive faux gems to  finish
Hope you approve - I look forward to reading your comments

ALSO, Saturdays have turned in to new LESS IS MORE challenges and today's set theme is "OFF CENTRE" - fancy having a go? Then check  out their blog here - all you need to do is produce a Clean And Simple card which is off centre - schimples!!!! (as the meerkats might say!).

Have a fabulous Saturday and a VERY HAPPY EASTER! I'm off to have a go at the off centre challenge so feel free to check back later and see how it goes ........

I really really like this card! The metallic starry bp is fab and the image is great. I had to come along to your blog to have a peak at who the stamp and sentiment was by :)
