Hi and welcome to Saturday

Morning and welcome to the weekend - hope you've a fun one planned!

Phewww! Last night we headed out for dinner - my first "proper" social engagement since my op! The lovely Raj greeted me and said how well I was looking (for which I thank Bare Escentuals!) and the three of us (me, hubby and pal, Debbie) enjoyed a top notch evening.

Over on the craftbubble group, Craft Mad and Loving It there's a GUEST Design Team slot every four weeks and it is my privilege to have the opportunity to present the sketch this week and I've added the theme "Give a little flourish" to the sketch ....... check it out here

And here is the card I made using it - given the closeness of December 25th I'm sure you won't be surprised that it's a Christmas card .... me either!!!

Materials used:
  • C6 white card and envelope
  • Inkadinkado flourish inked in memento tuxedo black to the two top corners
  • Inkadinkado sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black on to white card pane and opposing corners rounded
  • Silver mirri card with opposing corners rounded, to layer my sentiment on to
  • Two white card panels (with corners rounded) on to which my Papermania bauble image was stamped using memento tuxedo black ink
  • Two silver mirri card panels with rounded corners (using my Fiskars punch)
  • Copic Atyou Spica black glitter pen used to draw the bauble hanger
  • Crystal stickles to highlight

Hope you like it - it's been tricky with limited stash in my temporary craft room (aka the dining room) as poor hubby is probably getting a little fed up of running backwards and forwards fetching yet more stash! But, if you are reading this hun - THANK YOU!

Of course, another Saturday ritual has become the Simply Less Is More "Clean And Simple" challenge too and this week is no different - the challenge is to make a Clean And Simple One Layer Card featuring LEAVES. Check out the entries for this challenge by following this link

Happy Saturday everyone

Great card Kathy. Lovely to see you back at the table of craftiness. I bet you are enjoying it. I love the sketch. I will try my best to have a go tomorrow, but I can't promise to join in this week, although I'd love to. Too much work to do and I need to see my parents too... will see how my time goes. x
