Sketch N Stash Challenge

Hello and happy Friday to you - it is still a very wet soggy day here in Blackall with the river rising very quickly. Hopefully it will not get too much higher. I have just finished having lunch with friends - which was lovely, now I feel like a little afternoon nap but I had better not. So I thought I would finish off my latest card for the current challenge over at Sketch N Stash where you can choose  a sketch from their catalogue to case.
Now this is what I started with - a very sad crunched up bit of Anna Griffin paper that had been pushed to the bottom of my stash draw

 I have chosen Sketch No 7 which is this one

And this is my attempt

I have used my favourite Magnolia Wedding stamp which I watercoloured along with a sizzix corner die, some handmade flowers, spellbinders and stickes. The flowers where out of my stash of already made flowers that where left over from one of my previous projects -  A wedding book that you can see here.

This is the inside view with the addition of a Hero Arts stamp.

Ok well tomorrow I am hoping to play along with everyone from Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Although I am not sure if I will get enough time. We have an extra two little people over for the weekend - which will be great fun! Then on Monday I fly out of Blackall and head to Brissy for the week as I am having the first of my five operations on Tuesday. I am a big baby when it comes to pain and all the fun stuff that goes with operations so I am very nervous already. So if I am MIA on here you will know where I am.
I am taking a big pile of stamped images with me to colour while I am away. I find the colouring so relaxing so hopefully it will stop me from feeling sorry for myself.
Ok well be good while I'm gone.
talk soon

Hi Joy

Loving your project. Your backing paper looks gorgeous.

Great sketch choice. There are just so many fabby ones in the catalogue that it is hard to choose isn't it?

Love the Wedding Book you did also.

Have a good weekend with your special visitors.

Love Jules xx
