Papercraft Weekly Challenge - Katharina's Sketch #2

Here's my entry for the Papertake Weekly Challenge - although I don't think my card is quite what the sketch asked for!

The stamp is by Great Impressions - I used prismacolor pencils and sansador to blend. The card is bazzil bling (cuttlebug embossed with swiss dots) and the papers are Hot Off The Press. The flower is Daisy Box Blends and the pearl brad is from Poppycraft.

Charlotte's Card

Here's a card I've been working on for my Nephew's little girl -I thought they might like to make a door plaque out of it after her birthday! I've had lots of new goodies lately - Circus alphabet set (which I've used for the name, coloured with cat's eyes, then I've glittered and used glossy accents) and a set of Prismacolor pencils (which I've used on the Tilda image and blended with Sansador) and some new Cuttlebug embossing folders (which I've used for the backgrounds).

A Big Hello To All My New Sisters!

As I'm now a member of the Sisterhood 16 of the Blogging Stampers I thought I'd post a note to say a big hello to all of my new sisters. There are some very talented crafters out there and I love to go visiting. The only downside is that you get carried away and finish up viewing instead of actually crafting!

To share a little about me to my group - I'm a 50 something, working mum with a teenage son. I love anything and everything to do with crafts. I think I've done them all! My main hobby now is card making which I make time for whenever I can. My crafting buddy Karen (a fellow sister) and I usually craft on a Wednesday evening at my home straight from work.

I'm really looking forward to visiting all your fab blogs and getting to know you all a lot better.

Happy Crafting!
