A card for a friend...

Happy Saturday everyone!

A good friend of mine in work had some bad news during the week. I really felt for her as she is usually a very strong, happy, bubbly girl and the news she got knocked her for six!

This is a card I made for her using my SU stash...

This is the verse I put inside:

It will be the little things
that you will remember,
the quiet moments,
the smiles, the laughter.
And although it may seem
hard right now,
it will be the memories
of these little things
that help to push
away the pain
and bring the smiles
back again.

She loved the card!!!

Have a great weekend xxx

Anyone for Anya?

Lots of Layers....

....Is this weeks challenge over on Anyone for Anya. I never thought I could enter these challenges as I don't have any Anya stamps much to my dissapointment!! But I saw on the wonderful Dawnys blog that you can now enter with CC Designs stamps which I bought very recently!

I also saw on Dawnys blog her sketchs which she has to help anyone with inspiration! I used one of these for my card....

I hope you like, I am still practising with my copics and throw away many images everyday because they don't 'look right' I think I am getting better with practise though. I also tried to colour with coloursoft pencils and sansador yesterday as I see it on peoples blogs and it looks lovely, but I just can't seem to get on with it. Just need more practise I think!

Hope you are all enjoying your bank holiday Monday, the weather here is sunny one minute and raining the next!!! Not good but still enjoying my day!

Well the Saturday Sketch Challenge was my challenge for the day! There are some fabulous examples over on their blog ...

Here is my take on the Sketch ....

Everything used here apart from Prima Flowers and Patterned Paper is Stampin Up! I just love the way Stampin Up colours co-ordinate with everything else in my craft room!

If you would like to order anything please let me know!

Hen Weekend Invites

Well I have been very busy over the past week making my best friends hen weekend invitations. We are all off to Butlins in Skegness for a school reunion weekend. I wanted to make the invites more 'schooly' but that idea didn't go down very well, so we compromised. The theme of the Friday night is 'Pink' so I have made the invites with those colours, but you will see on the black layer I have written in white so it looks (hopefully) like a blackboard!

I hope you like them, the hearts are the fabulous Heart to Heart punch from Stampin Up!

See you soon!
