Friday Sketchers

>> Friday, 16 April 2010

Happy Friday everyone. I hope you've had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend. We've got a good forecast for the South of England although they said on the news tonight that we might get a light covering of ash which is blowing over from the Icelandic volcano!

My hAnglar stamps arrived on Tuesday (great service as I only ordered them Friday morning). I fell in love with this cutie the moment I spotted her in blogland so I was thrilled she was in one of the kits being sold.



The papers are a mixture of Rusty Pickle and Magnolia. I scuffed all the edges and distressed them with Walnut Stain distress ink. I even felt brave enough to tear one piece!! The deeper blue flower was a bargin from HobbyCraft (39p for 5 flowers) and the others are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I forgot to spray the flowers with glimmer mist so I added some stickles instead, but I did managed to stick everything the right way up on the base card!






Also in the post this week I received the latest copy of Papercraft Essentials and guess who is making her debut as a designer.........ME!!

My challenge was to make five cards for £5 which was harder than I first imagined! I'm so excited to have some cards published and if you buy this magazine I'd love to know what you think.
