"The Pink Elephant" Challenge # 7

Morning Folks....from a cold but dry and bright Aberdeenshire...can't believe the difference in temperature from last week...but hey what an improvement on yesterday's weather.....goodness it was like Acopalypse Now...wild...wet and lots of snow showers and a great excuse to be snug and cosy in my cubby hole crafting......and I am definitely back in crafty mode....and managed to find some time to get another challenge card done.
The challenge this week on "The Pink Elephant" is a sketch from the lovely Robin and a great sketch too....so I kept it fairly simple this week....my type of card.
Paper: WeR Memory Keepers ~White Out Collection
Ribbon: We RMemory Keepers
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad...Brushed Corduroy
Image: Hero Arts...can't remember the name
it's a bit of an oldie and came in a set
Flowers: Prima
Buttons: Basic Grey Sultry
Scallops: cut with Fiskars Heart Punch
Sentiment: sticker from my stash
I am having the morning off......the M&S sale starts today......am I needing any stuff.....not really but hey I might just see that must have item that has been drastically reduced....so after "The Budster" has trotted around and done his all important sniff every blade of grass within a 5 mile radius ...I will be off for a nosey and then back to crafty mode again....need to get the samples for Craftwork Cards done and dusted and who knows....may be back later with another challenge card.....Hugs Kath xxxxxx
