2 Sketches 4 You Challenge

Morning folks.....and yes another challenge card......and it's been so long since I've had time to play along at 2 of my perhaps cooped up in the cubbyhole in this snowy weather hasn't been so bad after all.    The sketch this week is from the lovely Laura.....and a perfect opportunity to play with some of  the new stash that was my Santa present to me.

I am fallen completely head over heels in love with this gorgeous Hero Arts Cling Stamp....Antique Brocade and it looks sensational stamped onto Kraft Cardstock with the Stampin Up Whisper White Ink Pad

Paper: Stampin Up Kraft Cardstock
Hero Arts....CG 102 Antique Brocade
CL 293 Scattered Leaves
Sentiment: Hero Arts CL 278 Great Flourish
Ribbon: Stampin Up Twill Tape
Flowers: Hobbycraft Roses
Petaloo...Flora Doodles
Brads from stash
Stampin Up Ink Pads....Whisper White & Close to Cocoa

Big change in the weather here....after a night of heavy rain....the snow is disappearing literally like "snaw aff the tap o' a dyke" (translation in a posh voice...snow off the top of a stone wall)....gone is the Winter Wonderland look...we now have black roads bordered with lots of dirty snow....but I am not complaining.
Catch up with you all tomorrow.....Hugs Kath xxxxx


  1. What can I say but WOW!!! Absolutely gorgeous Kath, colours are so beautiful together. So elegant!! Thinks me might have to raid the old piggy bank and get some kraft card (where's the best place?) and that brocade stamp too.
    Knew my NY resolution wouldn't last long - at least hubby doesn't mind when I tell him it's Kath's fault.
    Hugs etc etc etc
