Sketch Saturday #32





HaPpY nEw yEaR folks!!


Hope you all had a cracking time seeing the New Year in. I was making my Sketch Saturday DT card when the Big Ben Dongs were going, start as you mean to go on, that's what I say.


I thought I'd use some some nice fresh colours for this card. Had a play with my new Koi watercolours. What do you think? I think I need more practice, but it made a nice change from my prismas. The papers and textured card are DCWV. I have also used some pale pink glitter board. I have used my Cuttlebug to emboss a layer. The flowers are Prima, I have added glitter and a large brad to each. The characters are Precious Moments (a kit from QVC that sold out very quickly and they haven't managed to get back) It hasn't come out great in the photo but I've used glitter on some of the clothing and hair accents. I have also used a Sakura glaze pen over the eyes.

I hope you are able to join in with this weeks challenge. It's a great opportunity to play with your new crafting goodies. If you'd like to share I'd love to hear what Father Christmas brought you Crafty-wise.... you can use it as a confession session if you like ;o) I received my Koi watercolours, the accessories kit for my Design Runner, WRMK Magnetic Cutting mat set, K&Co Mira kit, K&Co Fabric shoulder bag, Papermania alpha stickers (set of 10)and a voucher to spend at The Craft Barn....can't wait to spend that one!! As you can see I've been very spoilt this year.

Don't forget to have a look at the wonderful creations made by my fellow DT members.. they're a talented bunch!!

Just been reminded by Jeanette, and her wonderful blog, that it's Emma who is hosting this week as it's her birthday. I'm sure you'll join me in wishing Emma all the best. There is also a goody bag up for grabs provided by the lovely Emma who is also a sponsor.

Hugs

Gorgeous card Sandra! Wow! You certainly received lovely goodies for Christams. Guess you were a good girl! This year there was nothing under the tree for me. That's because my husband gave me a brand new craft room! I am just in the process of moving in but it is a dream come true! Many thanks for the lovely card you sent...sorry it took me so long to thank you...it is so pretty. Happy New year! Hugs Jeanette
