Sugar Bowl Challenge

Well, I didn't quite meet my challenge of posting again the next day but instead a couple of days later which I suppose is better than I've done in a long time. It was my dad's birthday last weekend and so I made a card for him. I decided to go with another sketch as I hadn't made a card in so long and went for the challenge over at the Sugarbowl where you could choose a sketch from their gallery and what a choice there was too. I eventually decided on the sketch from Challenge 39 but will be using some of their other sketches to make other cards.

I used my new Manga stamp "Scooter Boy" which I won from the Sugar Nellie blog as candy to mark the release of the new Manga stamps. The image was coloured using copics. The papers are Basic Grey and the sentiment is from Craftwork cards.

Be back soon. x

It's been a long time!

I seem to start every post by saying that it has been such a long time since I posted and I keep vowing to try harder at posting. It just never seems to work out that way due to life being so busy. The last time I posted was during the Easter hols but I literally haven't stopped since then with an assignment to write for uni, a school inspection, some job interviews amongst all the other everyday usual things.

I decided that I would use a challenge to make my first card in a very long time as I wasn't sure I'd be able to just unleash some creativity and to ease me into it gently. I've had a go at the Papertake Weekly challenge as I loved the sketch and having made this card I will definitely be using the sketch to make more cards. So without further ado here it is:

Stamp:Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellie
Papers:Basic Grey Olivia from Craft Obsessions
Embellishments and tools:MS Punch from Bunny Zoe Crafts

I'm setting myself a challenge - to post again tomorrow.

See you then!
