Thursdays Children


Sketch and Stash Challenge
have a fabulous sketch for us to follow this week and some really fabby Dt cards to get us started.


I have not been able to join in many challenges in the last couple of weeks as I have had a big commission to fulfill, more about that at the weekend. But like all of you I just had to stamp up and colour these lovely Gorjuss Girl stamps from Sugar Nellie as soon as they popped through the door, so this little one was sitting on my desk and as soon as I saw this sketch I knew she would be just right for it. She has been coloured with Copics, the papers are the new BG Pad Marrakech, they are yummy such fabulous colours. Yesterday I said I have a phobia about orange but don't you think this paper matches the image perfectly. Everything else from stash.



Another sheet from the Marrakech pad has been used inside.



Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge


The cards entered for our Design Team call onLili of the Valley Challenge last week were fabulous and we have had a hard job picking 2 new Dt members, but we have at last come to a decision, the names will be published later today on the Challenge Blog, thank you everyone who entered.

This weeks theme is BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL, lots of colour on your card this week girls. To see the Dt cards and find out more LOTV news please click
Here


I have used one of Lili's fairys and coloured her with copics, she has been cut and layered on to pale green card, the DP is from my stash and Ribbon from dear Rach. The embellies I found in a box and have had for ages but thought they matched this card perfectly.


Used some more of these recently discovered embellies inside



Thanks for looking
Hugs
