A new leaf!

Phew, what a busy busy week! I've been so looking forward to today - I had a work deadline yesterday, now it's all done and I'm treating myself to a day off, and to catch up on blogging and blog-hopping!

So guess what?! I've made a card for some challenges and am actually posting them before the closing date (see my resolution from the previous post!). I've recently fallen in love with Claire's Waltzing Mouse Stamps and was very excited when she announced the WMS Sketch Challenge blog!

Here's the first sketch:



I combined the sketch with the current Embellish Challenge -



... and came up with this, oh how I love to colour this gorgeous rose!




Recipe:

Stamps - Roses in Bloom (WMS)/Vintage Labels (PTI)
Card - Lemon Tart/Dark Chocolate/Melon Berry/Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Ink - Memento Black/Melon Berry (PTI)
Ribbon - Melon Berry (PTI)
Other - Melon Berry & Dark Chocolate Buttons (PTI)/Labels One Dies/Copic Sketch Markers


I've been wanting to paint my sitting room for ages and as it's a rainy ol' day I think today could be the day - I've found some paint that is JUST like Aqua Mist, and you know how much I love Aqua Mist..... ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely card Kate - I really like the colouring on your rose.

Isn't it great to have Claire's "local" business going from strength to strength - and no high shipping rates or customs charges!
