A Saturday Sketch …Midsummer’s Night

 

 

Good morning crafty friends, what are you up to this weekend?

The weather forecast is fabulous, it’s mixed blessings for me because although I love it, it means the attic is hot and I can’t get up there to craft. A bit of gardening is in order I think, I shall make the most of the sun because it’s going to rain next week so I can catch up with my crafting then

sketches 880

It’s Saturday so I have a new Sketch for you, this week I made the card and I used one of the new Birthday Fairies

I think this cutie is my favourite from the new release and she’s called Midsummer’s Night

midsummers night

 

(sorry about the rubbish picture by the way, my daughter took my camera on holiday so I had to use my phone and it was on a low size setting)

I printed the words on the computer and then used the empty tag from the Christmas Sentiment Tags set, I find the blank outline very useful because you can do any words or names that you choose, and they can face in either direction to suit your card or project

I’ll put all the details on my own blog next week if you would like to know what I used to make the card

Here is this week’s Sketch…

Sketch #12

It’s a nice simple one and I pretty much stuck to the layout exactly for this card apart from moving the sentiments a bit, I just added some flowers and bunting to finish off (can’t resist embellishing!!)

Hope you find it useful everyone, leave me a comment on the card, the sketch or even just to let me know what you’ll be up to this weekend – a name will be drawn from the comments to win today’s candy

Here’s our winner from Theme Thursday…

Well done, email your address to erica@liliofthevalley.co.uk

  57. A beautiful card Anne. I think this is my favourite stamp of the eight I bought. It's her face I love. I have been at a craft fair today with my work, for my charity. Not very busy but still sold quite a few items. Have made a clock with the new stamps and will post it on my blog tomorrow. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Carol S.xx
