Good morning crafters, it’s Saturday so I have a new Sketch for you today along with a couple more birthday cards from the selection made by the Design team for our 10th birthday

There are still a couple of days to enter our birthday challenge if you haven’t done so already

Here’s todays new Sketch…

Sketch #10

…and here’s the corresponding card made by our Mindy

 

Bumblebee Fairy - Mindy

 

Mindy used Bumblebee Fairy and one of our Everyday Grungy Messages on her pretty card

It’s an easy Sketch, just lots of lovely layers and a sentiment

You can move the elements around, Mindy used a decorative edge on one of the layers, put the sentiment at the top and added some gorgeous flowers

Another birthday card, and completely different, is this one from our Mary J

Mary used some fabulous brightly coloured papers from the Candles and Cake pad

The stamp is Party Pup and the Happy Birthday greeting is from the Scroll Sentiments set

 

Party Pup - Mary

 

Hope you like today’s cards, let me know what you think and a name will be drawn from the comments to win today’s candy

Our winner from Thursday is…

Sandra H

…well done Sandra, email your address to erica@liliofthevalley

That’s it from me, have a great Saturday everyone

  1. Good morning Anne from a very wet Surrey. That's a great sketch and Mindy's card is super using it. I love Mary J's bright happy little card too. I hope to get some crafty time this weekend, the weather will not allow any gardening! x

Both the cards are so lovely, love the bumblebee fairy image is it one of your new ones, can't wait to see them all. After seeing party pup I really need to make a shaped card, such a cute card for a boys birthday, love the papers. Thanks for the inspiration Best wishes Mariaxxx
