Friday Sketchers

How are you all today? Hope your weekend is going well so far. I'm just back from a cycle with my 8 year old and we had lots of fun. I haven't been on a bike for yonks! Must do it again soon!

I made this card using this weeks Friday Sketchers. I had Tilda all coloured just ready to go on a card. I want to thank Rach for the clear and simple explanation of how make Tilda pop out of her nestie frame. The first time I did it I lopped off her head but after checking out Rach's tutorial I got it right! Thanks so much!!
I wanted a vintagey feel to this card so I sewed the edges and then distressed them. The flowers are all distressed with Distress Ink. I also wanted to thank Janny for the insipiration for my sentiment. I saw her using the Tim Holtz tickets in this way a wee while ago and loved it. So thanks so much for the inspiration!! So not much on this card I can claim for my own eh??

What is a girl meant to do with all this fantastic talent out in blogland???..can't ignore it. I think we all bounce ideas off each other in the end! Off to cook tea and have a quiet Sat evening...hope the telly is good!

LOL, first time I tried the image outside the frame thing I lopped Tilda's legs off, so you're not alone! xx

The antique effect is great with these papers and embellies.The finished card is beautiful.
Glad you enjoyed your cycle.We went to Holland for two weeks a couple of years ago and hired bikes.I hadn't been on a bike for years but loved it,too.Only trouble was,I could hardly sit comfortably for a week when I came home!! Ruth x

Hello Judy, LOL I swear I had to laugh at your lopping of Tilda's head. I did that also but I NEVER told!! LOL.....But since you did I guess I can fess up. LOL.... I LOVE YOUR CARD!! It's funny that we both used the same image and same colors!! With very different looks. What a hoot! I'm glad that you got the vintage feel and TIm Holtz ticket inspiration from one of my cards. Yours is just bee-U-t-ful! hugz janny

You card is just stunning Judy. I love the papers you have used and the vintagey feel you have given it. I love the "out of the nestie" look but still haven't mastered it properly. I don't think anyone else but me sees the mistake I make !!! Glad you enjoyed your cycle ride, I can't remember the last time I sat on a bike !!

Hugs,

Jo x
