Tuesday ... keeping you on your toes as you don't expect a post from me on a Tuesday - or DO YOU?

Morning fellow blog hoppers, followers or just visitors, and WELCOME
 
Can't keep a good crafter down so, despite having had a terrifically busy weekend I still managed a quick card using new stash from my recent foray to Lakeland!!!:-
 
 
 
 
Materials used:
  • 15cm square white, 300gsm, scallop edged card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Snippets of white card, black card and patterned card (DCWV Grandma's kids stack)
  • Art Impressions image and sentiment + Stampers Anonymous birthday sentiment stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Hero Arts grungey circle stamped using Hero Arts neon pink ink
  • Alcohol markers to colour
 
I'll be entering this for the sketch challenge over at The Paper Players, check out their sketch below
 
 
 
 
And a couple of photos from a wonderful weekend trip!

Morning Kathy, I can see you and Steve are having a fantastic time! Looks like the weekend was amazing. Loved the shopping that you have been doing - deeply envious of all those lovely shops you have been frequenting! Keep it up.

Your makes are truly lovely, loving the shaving foam background in particular. Your lady this morning is a perfect cutie.

Unlike the croc! Great to catch up. Have a fabulous Tuesday. Hugs Cherry xxxx

LOVE your card! The striped border is great. Have to pinch that idea. Great image and did I mention that gorgeous sentiment stamp. Fabulous!

Think we've got the weather at the moment. It is glorious outside.
