2 Sketches 4 You Challenge

The sketch this week at..........2 Sketches 4 You has been set by Kazan and although this week is going to be one of those nose to the grindstone kinda weeks.....I can't miss out on doing this sketch challenge...me thinks I am seriously addicted. Have you seen the new banner - it's gorgeous and has a definite FALL theme to it...OK it's Autumn for us...so I thought I would use that as my colourway this week using some of my favourite papers. I love the vintage look of these papers- they are so timeless.
As you can see the novelty of my Martha Stewart punch hasn't worn off yet. The gems started out their life as clear but I coloured them with a brown Sakura Identi-pen.


  • Papers: Basic Grey Perhaps
  • Stamp: Clear Set - Unknown...had them so long
  • Quote: Brenda Pinnick Clear Stickers
  • Brads: from my stash
  • Gems: Hero Arts
  • Flowers: Prima Artful Collage
P.S. What would be do without our blogging friends...Becky has just given us the info on the stamps....Best Friends Clear Set from Royal Langnickel.......thanks Becky....you're a star.
