Challenge 35 Follow a Sketch at Winter Wonderland and a Date for your Diary

Morning dear friends, I feel like I have not posted on here for a long time......it has been a busy week, 1st with my daughter moving house on Wednesday, then she came through to Edinburgh on Thursday to go to Ikea for some bits and pieces for her new house....she left on Friday, just a Brian arrived home with our Grandchildren Sinead and John.....we took them swimming yesterday, had tea out....unfortunately this morning Sinead was very sick, so I have been up since 4am with her, and now that is Tommy and John up.


I had so many problems with this card for Winter Wonderland this week.  I printed the image out on card that came from Brian's work, but when I used Silicone glue to stick it on it came through the card and spoiled the colouring, I tried everything to cover it up, but gave in in the end and coloured a new image.....just been back to the shed to put it on, as I left the Glossy Accents drying on Friday.....phew, think I just made the post......



This week we are following a fabulous Sketch, by our talented Pascale,  which I hope you all love....sketches (which can be rotated if you so desire)  are a great starting place, especially at this time off year, when MOJO's are still feeling lost (well I know mines is.....LOL).  I used a free Digitial Image that I picked up over Xmas, from Carol, such a fun image to play with, coloured him with my Promarkers, managed to add a few more to my collection, last week, after Brian got paid, a late Xmas pressie to myself.....LOL...I used glitter and Glossy Accents to highlight bits of the image, the papers and ribbon came from my stash, not sure which ones they are...I have lots of bits a pieces that I am trying to use, before starting on new sheets, we will see how far I get with that idea........pop over to Winter Wonderland and see the terrific projects that our talented DT have come up with this week....

A Date for your Diary

Hi avril Ann,

Aw Avril, this Dustin Pike Dragon is so cute and you've done a fab job with your new PM's. Hope poor Sinead is feeling better soon. If you get a mo, swing by my bloggy later and you'll see great minds think alike as I've just got my new stamps from High Hopes Stamps and was playing with them (and my copics) yesterday too. Take care. Lauren x
