The challenge this week on Friday Sketchers is a fab sketch by Beatrix. I turned it around to suit an upright DL card. I've noticed that Cute Card Thursday's challenge this week is to make a lilac card, so I've decided to combine the challenges. The image is a Spiral Whisper stamp called Snowball Maddie water coloured with pencils and stickles added for snow. Mounted onto lilac mirri card. Papers used are lilac patterns from the English Paper Company. Purple ribbon added with a knot at one end and a glittery star at the other. White Prima flower is stippled with a little lilac ink, as are the papers, then a sparkly button added. Winter Wonderland stamped with black Versafine, and a few stamped snowflakes added.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
