Sketch and Stash Challenge #2
Hi everyone, well it's time for Becky's second sketch over at the Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog, and it's another fabulous one!
Please pop over and take a look at the DT cards from Becky and Lisa and try to find time to enter if you can. We had a fabulous response to our first challenge and it would be lovely to get a similar response again this time.
For Challenge 2 we have a Guest Designer spot available for Challenge 3 and Challenge 4. If you would like to be considered please add GD to your comment. And don't worry about "not being good enough" that doesn't apply at Sketch and Stash!! The GD call will close at Midnight on Friday as this will give the Guest Designer a full week to create their card, but you can continue to enter the challenge for fun until our next challenge on 2nd Feb.
As I've been totally out of ideas for a while, I decided to use the sketch as the basis for my nephew's 6th birthday card and so 'kill two birds with one stone' so to speak, hence the sentiment and name on my card. As little Robert has recently started wearing glasses I thought 'Back to School' Edwin might be the perfect choice for him.
Edwin, along with the fab swing, are both Magnolia images that I hadn't managed to use yet, but as Rob is 'all boy' I wanted to keep the card as plain and simple as possible.
* Backing papers and border strips from my stash
* Magnolia Edwin and Tree from an image swap
* Images coloured with Pro Markers
* Sentiment produced on PC
I'm feeling a little brighter lately, (I'm sure this probably has something to do with all the messages of support and encouragement that I've been receiving from you all) so I'm hoping that I'll be posting and blogging regularly again very soon. I've managed to visit all my favourite blogs in the last couple of days (my you've all been busy!) and gained some much needed inspiration, in fact I think I might hear my little Mojo knocking at the door now! (Thanks to my friend Rica who sent him home to me after she found him wandering around her local park eating a hot dog)
