Friday Sketchers


Happy Weekend everyone, I find it  really strange that after 4 years of retirement, I still look forward to the weekends, even though there is no difference in my daily schedule
and if it wasn’t for the different challenges and Dt cards I am sure I wouldn’t even know what day of the week it was Winking smile.    Sunday is Mothers Day here in the UK , and although my 2 eldest sons are away on their annual Fishing Trip to France (Hope Matthew catches a few more fish than he did last year, the only one he caught last year was the record breaking 44lb Carp, whilst Richard was catching them every day on a regular basis and he had the next swim to Matthew) my two youngest boys James and Ben are treating me to a Lovely Mothers Day Lunch, it also means I will spend lots of lovely huggles time with the Grandchildren.


I used one of my Older Sarah Kay stamps for this card, and coloured the image with Copics, and have used the sketch from this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge, thank you girls it is a great sketch.  The lovely embossed and glittered paper is from the 12x12 K&Co Winter Wonderland Pad.


The Large rose is from Craft Fairy and cherry blossom from Wild Orchid Crafts, I think I bought the gold twiggy things from our local C&H Fabrics, whilst punching the leaves my Martha Stewart punch broke, this is the 3rd MS branch punch that has died on me, has anyone else had the same problem, I decided I was not going to buy another one but this morning have realised just how much I use it so I expect I will trawl the websites today to get one.


The Copics used to colour the image
E00, E01, E11, E13, R20
R11, R21, R22, R35
G82, G85, G94, BG99
E53, E51, E50

Just a quick reminder did you know that First Class Stamp will cost 5p more on Monday, but if  you still have some 1st class stamps you will still be able to use them as there is no price on them, it was recommended on BBC Breakfast this morning that you buy as many stamps as you can today.


To all those lovely Mums out there have a fabulous day tomorrow

What a gorgeous card.


Jo Austin said...

Beautiful Jacqui.

Leaves - yes, I had a leaf punch by MS that kept breaking, but haven't got another. I got myself a couple of Lee-Em punches and they are great but quite firm.

However... did you know that Stampin Up have just bought out their mini catalogue and there is a die cut leafy design in there.. ? looks very similar..

Riet said...

So wonderful card Jacqui,I love the image and the colours.

Hiya Jacqui, love this card, its so vintagey, and thats definitely my genre....anyhow just wanted to let you know ive had the MS branch punch snap on me too, and if you have a cricut, i would do what i did and i bought the Storybook cart, it has a few different branch dies on it one very similar to the MS punch, just a thought, but thats what i did in the end as the cart has loads on it i use
hope you are ok
