I hope you're all keeping well?
This was supposed to be posted this morning and I don't know what happened that it didn't work, it's probably the heat getting to me - we're in Ireland, it's not supposed to be this hot for this long!! Not that I'm complaining that much though, it's nice for a change and I don't think it's going to last too much longer.
On other news...
I'm an auntie again! My brother became a daddy to his little boy last Tuesday and as our parents were away on holiday at the time (and were so annoyed that they missed it!) it was up to me and my sister to do our side of the family's part - as well as keep an eye on their house, feed cats and water plants. Oh and go to work as well! All in this heat, I was totally exhausted! But my new wee nephew is just so gorgeous! I can't show pics though as they don't want him on the internet just yet, so you'll just have to take my word for it!
Time for a new challenge at Seems A Little Sketchy and we have a fabulous sponsor for the next fortnight - Bugaboo Stamps!
So here's the sketch for challenge 44
Bugaboo very kindly gave each of the DT an image to work with for this challenge and here's what I did with mine:
My image is called Scene It - Birthday Bears and I've coloured it with the following copics: Bears: E44,43,42. E39,37,35. E33,31,30. W7,5,3. and E49 for their noses. Everything else: G19,17,16. YG07,05,03. R39,37,29. RV34,32. YR07,04,02. Y15,13,11. BG02,01,000,0000. C1,0.
The papers are Basic Grey, Lime Rickey and I used a Stampin' Up! scallop border punch on some scrap card for the middle part, finishing off with some crocheted lace. I used my old favourite Magnolia swirl die along with a Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Fanciful Flourish die. I also found some pompoms in my stash that were the perfect shade of blue to finish it off. Another couple of Stampin' Up! punches were used for the (WRS) sentiment.
The inside compliments the front with the same basic sketch and the same papers.
So take a look at the fab inspiration from the rest of the DT at Seems A Little Sketchy!
