ABC Challenge

Y is for Yesteryear - That is this weeks challenge over on ABC Challenge. I have dug out this old stamp which is one of the first I bought and have 'tried' to give it a new lease of life.

Cardstock is all Bazzill.

Hope you like! Get on over to ABC Challenge, there are some wonderful designs on there!

Dawny's Sketch #7

Well this has been a very productive day to say the least! I can honestly say 'I love the snow!!'

This sketch challenge is from the Papertake Weekly Challenge. It was an excellent sketch with some wonderful examples.

All of the orange cardstock is Bazzill Bling. I love this range! The patterned paper is Provocraft - Orange Scribble Floral. I have used my dots cuttlebug embossing folder on the backing card. The image is ... yes its another Penny Black Stickeroo!

Hope you like! Have a look at Papertake Weekly Challenge blog here!

A CCEE Sketch Challenge!

Another challenge down only 2 to go!!

This is a another sketch challenge for CCEE Stampers. It is a very simple sketch which was perfect for a male card. This is going to my partners brother on Thursday! The green cardstock is shimmer although it doesn't quite come out on the photo! The blue is the same which I have inked around the edges with my versacolor inkpad. I think the patterned paper is doodlebug! The image is another Penny Black Stickroo which are my fav at the moment. I have cheated on the sketch and stamped a 'Persomal Impressions' sentiment at the bottom in blue versacolor.

Check out CCEE Stampers here for some fantastic examples and join in!

Mojo Monday....Week 71

Here is my entry for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch! I loved this sketch, think I will be using this a lot in the future.
The cardstock is all Bazzill Bling card in different shades of purple. The backing paper is Dovecraft 6x6 Designer Paper in Amethyst - Floral Prints. The stickers are actually Penny Black Stickeroos. They are so easy to use and I think have a really good effect!
