2 Sketches 4 You & A Sneaky Peek

Morning folks.....cast your mind back to yesterday's disaster...well would you  believe that once the coffee stain had dried out it didn't look too bad....reminded me a bit of the tea stain varnish you can paint on ...although the card was decidely buckled and feeling sorry for itself....definitely a bin job...not too upset about having to do it again....but oh those gorgeous papers....what a waste!! and yes I did manage to find time to do another.......
The sketch this week on 2 Sketches4You is from the lovely and talented Kazan and I am so glad that I found time to join in this week.....it's a fabulous sketch and one I will definitely use again.
Papers: MME Bella Bella Collection
Flower and gems from my stash
Sentiment: Rub-ons....Daisy Bucket Family
Flourish Stamp: Craftwork Cards Choko Collection
Card Candy: Craftwork Cards
Martha Stewart Lace Edge Doily Punch
Fiskars Squeeze Punch.....Heart
and believe me this one was kept well away from anything remotely liquid until it was
 safely photographed... and
of course it's Thursday and time for your sneaky peek this week
Well that's it for today folks.....no time for idle chit chat ...am off to walk "The Budster"....home and get myself showered and changed and then off to the train station to meet...SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL..will tell all tomorrow and you know I haven't had a little rant for a while......sorry to disappoint.... no rant in the offing.....quite the opposite in fact.....I will be singing someone's praises from the rooftops in my loudest voice.................Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
