First card in ages…..


Hi guys,

Well this as to be the first card in ages that I have made. A good reason for this is that it is the Mother-In-Laws Birthday this week……so no excuses for me.

So I needed a challenge to get the crafting juices flowing and I found Sketch Saturday which had the below sketch:


So I found the sketch but then what????????


I used papers from the Pampered Pets Collection by Andrea Jayne. The stamp is also from the Pampered Pet collection called Sitting Pretty by Andrea Jayne. I have distressed the paper edges with Ranger inks in spun sugar. Card candy from the stash. I could not get the my ribbon draw as we have not cleared that yet……yeah yeah I know it needs doing! So I crocheted my little ribbon is some left over green I had.


I have used Ranger ink in tea dye and coloured with pencils. This stamp is lovely.


I used the left over papers on the inside for a bit of difference for me. I have inked the edges once again with spun sugar and used my Beaded Circles nesties.


Oh yeah the model in the background is Dixie.

So I think I will go and enter this card into the Sketch Saturday Challenge.


Luv Jane XX
