Just sitting here ....

Hi there!

Woohoo - I've managed to do a challenge card!!  We have had incredibly cold temperatures today (-39oc with wind chill) and therefore I vowed to not step out of the door!  So what more perfect way to spend the day than to craft!

I was browsing some sketch challenge blogs and really liked this weeks sketch over at The Sweet Stop.  I thought I would play along and decided to colour up a Tilda image ... something I haven't done in quite a while!  I coloured with my copics and used Magnolia papers.  Even my sewing machine got a dusting off and I added some stitching to the card.

The sentiment is also from Magnolia which I distressed around the edges and inked with distress inks.  The mini roses and cream aster are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the bow and bling from my stash.  I used an MS border punch for the middle strip.

This blue is not often a colour I work with but am really happy with the way this turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today and hopefully my time will allow me to craft a little more this week!  I appreciate all the comments you leave ... I hope I can sneak some blog hopping time in too so I can return them!!

Hugs,
Danielle x
