Two Sisters

Good morning and happy weekend to you all!  Hope you all have a lovely one whatever you are up to. We are having a quiet one so plenty of crafty time I hope!!

For my card today I have used a Wags 'n Whiskers digi which I won recently in their challenge and Nikki told me the image is based on her two daughters:


I have followed the sketch again from Papertake Weekly because I really enjoyed using it.  The papers are from Nitwits called Spring Breeze (their sale is still on - 32.5% off everything).  I have coloured the image with Copics and Prismas.  The umbrella is made from a Memory Box die and ribbon and gems from my stash.  I have put some Glossy Accents on their eyes and wellies not sure if it shows too well on this picture.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Emergency Crafters - Bold and Bright
Lily Pad - Rainy Days
Sweet 'n Sassy - Quote Inspiration 'April Showers'
Wags 'n Whiskers - Used their image
Art Impressions - Rain or Shine
Ribbon Carousel - Anything Goes
Sassy Cheryl's - April Showers
Paper Creations Ink - April Showers


Well I read somewhere that Copic prices are going up by 8.5% from May so I ordered a pile of Sketch Copics and I am hoping they come today.  I ordered them from Cult Pens yesterday and they were dispatched yesterday they always have excellent service. I am swapping over from Ciaos to Sketch gradually as the Sketch are bigger and have the numbers on the end which the Ciaos don't.  So I will do a bit of shopping this morning, a crafty afternoon then The Voice and BGT tonight!!

Thanks so much for looking and please leave a comment as it is always lovely to read them and I know you have been then!! See you tomorrow and take care xx
