With Love

It is my last week as Guest Designer for Sketch Saturday, and what a lovely sketch to end with. I have really enjoyed my 2 weeks working with this super talented design team thank you very much for asking me to join you all. You can always be assured of a brilliant sketch to help you out when Mojos gone missing and this week there is a fantastic prize awaiting one winner donated by the truly generous Heidi from Simon Says Stamp, a $25 dollar gift voucher to spend in the store, don't forget you have to be in it to win it so click Here to get started.

What a horrible week I have had, firstly that rotten migraine, then yesterday my stupid!!!! 'puter kept crashing, I have 24 cards for a commission I am working on to be completed by Tuesday and they need backing paper that has to be run off on the printer, every time I tried to run off a sheet the blooming computer just shut down halfway through the printing. My DS James answered my distress call but has come to the conclusion that it has to join all those other kaput computers in the puter graveyard. So its a big expense for me next week I just cannot manage without it, I will try my best to visit everyone today but I am not sure if it will hold out and I have to get on with these 24 cards.

Now on to todays card, I have used one of my lovely Vintage PB Stamps for this card and have coloured her with Copics and have added perfect pearls to the middle of the little flowers on her dress, these lovely papers are a download from

I have carried the sketch and the papers onto the outside.

Stamps- Penny Black, Sentiment SU
Colouring Medium -Copics on Manga Art Board, Perfect Pearls
Papers - Mathilda 2 from
Embellies - Flowers - Wild Orchid Craft, the rest from stash

With all that has been going on this week for the first time since we started Penny Black Challenge I have been unable to produce a DT card, I do apologise to all my fellow DT members.

Have a great weekend all
Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx

Hi Jacqui,
So sorry to hear you have been having trouble with your 'puter :o(
It must be awful especially when you need to get on with 24 cards! I don't know how you manage to fit it all in! You are amazing.
It's been such a pleasure and an honour to have you on the Sketch Saturday. Your cards have been a dream and this one is no exception. I just adore the Vintage PB stamps and am starting to collect them myself (I just couldn't resist) I'll add this beauty to my wish list if she's still available. The papers you have used are scrummy too.
Hope you find a fab new computer that won't let you down.
Enjoy your weekend.
Sandra x
