Tilda with Eggs - Papertake Weekly Sketch

It had been years since I'd been to Hobbycrafts at the NEC but because I just happened to have a week off work that coincided with it off we went yesterday. I had not bought any crafty stuff for a while knowing that we were going but I definitely made up for it!!!

When I got home from work today I just had to use one of my NEC purchases. This card is based on the sketch over at Papertake Weekly and I'm also entering it into the Simon Says Challenge where the theme is Easter with a bit of glimmer/sparkle.

Have used "Tilda with Eggs" coloured with copics. The DP's are Papermania "Honey & Hugs". The eggs have a coating of glamour dust just for that bit of sparkle.

Just a quick peek at a few of my purchases from yesterday........

I did have to do a trade off with Martyn - Hobbycrafts on Friday if I went birdwatching on Thursday. To keep me occupied I was let loose with the "grown up" camara (with a lens on it as big as my head!!!). I do just click at everything so am sharing just a couple of my "better" pictures....

Mothers Day - Just Magnolia Sketch

I know in my last post that was going to be my final Mothers Day card, but then I realised today that I had made all those cards for someone else and hadn't got one for my mom. So I made this one when I got home from work today. It's based on the fab sketch over at Just Magnolia and I've used one of my favorite stamps again "Sweet Tilda".

Have coloured it with copics and the DP's are "My Minds Eye".

One Card - Four challenges

No work today so time to make a card this morning and this one I'm entering into four challenges!!! The layout is a sketch from Sketch & Stash, Crafty Catz is Shades of Green, Pollycrafts is Distressing and Simon says Stamp is Mothers Day.

The image is "Fairies-On Tiptoe" from Lili of the Valley coloured with Copics. The DP's are from the Papermania range "Regency Hill". Have distressed the papers. used Distress Ink Pads and Distress Stickles so I think that should cover the distress part of the challenge. The image is new, and the DP's are neglected stash (for the Sketch & Stash Challenge).

Off now to get ready for the theatre - Agatha Christie play "Witness for the Prosecution" at Wolverhampton Grand. Love a good "murder mystery".
