Sketch Saturday - Sketch number 22

Really enjoyed working with this one, its was the first card i made since i got back from holiday yesterday. Used K and Co papers and some ribbon from Craft at Home. I think i have bought most of their stock on this ribbon am using it on most of my Christmas cards. The stamp is from a shop in Canada, I stamped and embossed it in gold and coloured in with watercolour pencils and my water brush

2 sketches for you - bonus sketch by Joke

Loved the idea of the round card, used papers from Artylicious Seasons greetings CD, used my cricut to cut the card shape and the embellishment is from my new stash from my visit to the dollar store!!! they have amazing stuff for crafting for next to nothing.

Kazans Sketch 11

I loved this sketch it was fun to work with. I have recently bought an embossing mat that enables me to run brass stencils thru my cuttlebug and got a beautiful angel stencil from Craft at home. the papers are Anna Griffin, K and Co and coredinations green card stock. Did a bit of beading on one of the panels. The pictures rubbish doesnt do it justice. The ribbon is from my Auntie Ritas stash, every year she goes to Costco and fills her trolley with the most beautiful ribbon for decorating her house, her tree and her xmas presents. She is a keen crafter who got me started. She is amazingly talented
