Mrs Tiggywinkle

Good morning everyone and I think we may have said goodbye to our friend the sun!  Just when we were getting used to it oh well hope its not too long before we see him again!!  At least you don't feel too guilty if the weather is naff being stuck in your craft room crafting away.

Yesterday I saw a gorgeous card on Pauline's blog and loved the layout which she had made using a sketch for a challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Well, as you know, I do love making cards following a sketch so I had to have a play.  I also had some Beatrix Potter stamps that I had got at the NEC and never used so I thought it was about time I had a bit of a play with them.


The stamp is by Crafter's Companion and I have coloured her with my Copics and also some Promarkers and Fleximarkers.  Not sure who the papers are by as they were loose but possibly K and Co - they are quite old, antique I think!! I have used a Dienamics Die for the butterflies, the flowers are Woodware and the backing flowers are Magnolia Doohickeys.  I have added some Stickles to the flowers and the pearl brads are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Bearly Mine Challenges - Animal Kingdom
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking today, next time I'll try and have the kettle on!! See you tomorrow, take care xx
