Friday Sketchers and some awards!

Howdy all and hope you are all having a good weekend. We have had a lovely afternoon at Crathes Castle with the family. My bones were chilled but it was good top be outside in the winter sunshine.

This is my card following the sketch this week over at Friday Sketchers. I love the sketches by Murielle and this one was no exception. I had Tilda already coloured so just hunted around for some papers to match. When I had it all stuck down and stitched I realised I had forgotten the horizontal element of the sketch...oooopppps! So I carefully slit a hole with my craft knife and managed to thread some ribbon through. Will that do????

I'm not entirely happy with the sentiment but it is just a couple of Doodlebug stickers so I can easily peel them off later and do something else with it!!

Another quick and simple inside!

Stamp: Valentine Tilda collection, Hero Arts sentiment stamp (inside)
Colouring: prismacolour pencils, white ink pen, blending chalk
Papers: SU
Embellishments: flowers from stash, quickutz flourish die, ribbon (SU), Doodlebug LoopyLou stickers, bling from Hero Arts

Firstly, a big apology to Jo. She gave me this award ages ago and I haven't posted it yet! I'm so sorry, it is not that I don't appreciate it , I really do! Thanks for all your encouragement and great comments Jo!

This one is from my swedish friend Anki! We will meet one day my friend and thank you for thinking of me and again for all your sweet and kind words. They mean a lot!

And finally one from a new friend with a new blog. Go check out Sem's talent!! I think her work is wonderful considering she has been card making such a short time! Go girl! And thanks again for your sweet words and award!

As I check around most of you have received these awards! So I won't pass these ones on!

Thanks for taking the time to look!

A beautiful card Judy, I love the colours and the way you've sat Tilda! I always think she needs to be on something specific, but you've shown that just by sgading in the space underneath she looks right at home. Thanks for the inspiration! xx
