Our Spanish student, Paula, returned home last Sunday, it was lovely having her and Shannon is now looking forward to her trip in April of next year.
Oh and Andy comes home tonight for the weekend :-)
Anyways, lets get on with this post. We have a new challenge starting, for this fortnight, over at Polka Doodles. Our theme this week is use this sketch!
Now, I am not that good with sketches, but I have to admit I really enjoyed using this one. I have used the fabulous new Winston Deluxe Papercrafting CD for my creation.
I used the pre-coloured image of Winston and Etty celebrating, using these to replace the hearts in the sketch. Don't they look dapper in their posh togs :-)
All the papers and embellishments are from this fabulous CD. I distressed all the edges of all the layers and inked them with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.
My card base was a 6" by 6" from my stash, it has been in there for ages. I inked the edges of the base too. For the inside, I used the same papers and then added the champagne glasses and hearts (also from the CD), which were cut using my Cameo. In fact, I designed the whole card in Design Studio, and then filled each of the layers with the papers from the CD :-)
The Happy Anniversary sentiment is from the wonderful Cherryblossom Lane CD. I added the characters, sentiment and hearts, using some foam squares to add some dimension to the card.
So, why not give the sketch a go, I think it is a great one. Then all you have to do is go over to Polka Doodles and enter the challenge. You have until Noon GMT, Friday 3 October to enter - so plenty of time to get creating.
