Friday Sketchers and awards

Good Morning!! Hope you are all well. I have a little boy home from playgroup today with ear-ache. But it is quite nice as they are usually quite cuddly and quiet when they are not quite themselves. So we will have a cuddle on the sofa later :)

Todays card is for Friday Sketchers using another of the fabulous Diane Duda stamps from Sugar Nellie. She is as usual coloured with prismas. This time she has a little sparkle for her wings. Oh I see I left the crown of the cat white..have to go back and sort that!!
The image is cut from nesties leaving a little piece popping out the frame. This is a lovely technique I learned from the lovely Rach.
I made the script background paper myself!! I stamped the magnolia script background in brown Staz-on ink and when it was dry I used my blending foam and covered it with Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain distress inks. I am quite pleased at how it turned out. I used the scraps left over for the flowers on the inside and out. An inside using up scraps and keeping a similar layout from the front.

I have also to share some awards. Thank you very much to Sandra for this award. She is from Zagreb and has very limited crafty supplies, but what she does with them is so creative. Thanks for your sharing your ingenuity with us!

And thank you to Janny for this fabulous award. Her blog is a joy to visit and so much inspiration! I love to pop by and see what she has made :)Before I go I just want to say 'Hi' to the girls I met on Saturday at Simply Create. Hi Debbie and Jenny *waves* ! It was great to put faces to your blogs!! I had a really great time demo-ing, with such lovely ladies coming to watch. You all made not half as nerve -wracking as I thought it might be. Have a great day,
Judy x
