2 Sketches 4 You Challenge

The sketch this week on 2 Sketches 4 You has been set by Laura.
I've had a real fun day.....lots of playing and quite a few sketches done and just when you think you have all the time in the world........the telephone rings....."Mum can you please look after Oliver tomorrow".
Well that isn't a problem...he is so sweet but it meant that I had to speed up a bit with the challenges and when the going gets tough..the tough get going....oh dear I'll be singing that for the rest of the night......I made two challenge cards in less time than it took me to make one in the morning.
The Design Team this week were all given clear cards from Shortcuts this week to work with so I thought after my tutorial with acetate and organza ribbon...I would go with that and yes I am still in Christmas mode.
Please forgive the piccies......acetate isn't the best subject to capture late afternoon when the light is fading but I know I probably won't have time for taking and uploading photos in the morning.
  • Papers & Embellishments: Paper Adventures....Holiday Joy
  • Ribbon...think this came off a Christmas gift
Enjoy your day........Love...Kath
