Happy Birthday to Sketch Saturday, and thanks for all the wonderful sketches you have provided for us in the last 52 weeks, also for the fantastic inspiration from the Design Team, this has become one of my favourite challenges and I join in as often as I can, looking forward to lots of new sketches during the next year.
As usual it is a fabulous sketch this week and some wonderful prizes on offer, there is also a blog hop with each DT member offering some Blog Candy well worth joining in this week.
I ordered the accessories for the lovely Annie stamps from Charmed Cards and Crafts last week and couldn't wait to use this lovely stool. I have stamped and cut out the stall and Annie and 3d onto an oval cut with Nesties, they have been coloured with Copics. I have used the last of my beloved Daisy Bucket Papers on this card and must now try to order some more.
I have as usual decorated the inside of the card.

"Lili of the Valley are having a massive summer sale. Everything on the website is reduced by at least 50%. Unmounted Stamps are only £2 each, Die Cuts are 65p a sheet and backing papers only 30p. So do stock up on your favourites, or it's a great chance to try them for your cards and crafts if you've not had them before."
You may wonder what my card has to do with Summer Fun but as we have only Boys in our Family this card is a micro view of how my older Grandsons fill the holidays, at first they are always on their phones making arrangements to met their friends, the evenings are spent making loud noises (I mean Music :D) with their guitars, and by the end of three weeks they are just standing around saying how bored they are.
The great Oliver Die Cuts are available from Lili of the Valley and are perfect for teenagers, the Paper is from K&Co. I found the instructions for the Tri Shutter Card on SCS.
Die Cuts - Lili of the Valley
