I’m Back ….

Well I’m back from Victoria after a lovely week with family and friends. I’m also back stamping and to the Utah Diva’s Sketch Challenge Team!

I must say it feels good to be back stamping again and seems so long since I’ve stamped yet it really is only a matter of weeks. I felt I was ready to go back to the challenges and when I asked Carol she so graciously allowed me back so thanks Carol 🙂

Here is today’s sketch ….

what a cool sketch to come back to hey? and just so Carol realises how much she missed me on the Sketch Team I had to rotate it!

Here’s my card …

I have a beautiful friend who is having a birthday this week and she’s had a hard year so thought I’d make her a special card for her special day. I do hope she likes it.  I just love the new Vintage Brads and the new Crochet Trim! These are both ‘must haves‘ so ring or email me today to order yours!

I must add here that I am ever so grateful for a fellow Diva, Gretchen Barron for her blog post about the mat sizes for the Scallop Trim Border and Corner punches – thanks so much Gretchen!  Dont ask how much Chocolate Chip cardstock I wasted trying to do it on my own!

Now your next stop in the Diva Sketch Team is the very lovely Ruthie B so pop over to her blog for her gorgeous creation and dont forget to leave the girls (and me) some comments – we love comments as they just make us all warm and gushy inside!

Dont want to miss any of the team then here’s the full list ….

Secondly…the card is beautiful and I am sure ur friend will be wrapped. the muted pink tones are lovely and the black really makes it pop!!.
