Sketch # last

Good morning everyone, apologies for my lack of blogging but life has been quite hectic this last few weeks and I have had family illness which is of course a priority.
My Mum has been quite ill but thankfully has now began to improve slightly and I am hopeful that she will be home from hospital before Christmas. Elaine has also had a lot of family illness and is also finding time to craft and blog a bit difficult. Such is life and as always we manage to cope somehow.

Thanks to all my followers for sticking with me this past while and for all your lovely and encouraging comments I really appreciate them all. I have not been able to do as many sketches as I would like but hopefully I'll be able to get back to normal very soon.
Hope you enjoy the sketch, we'd love to see what you make with it...

I'T'S BEEN A WHILE......Sketch #39

A sketch at last................. as you can see it's just very simple (again). I think sometimes simple is best at least when it comes to sketches. I feel it gives you more scope to develop your own design. After all a sketch is only the starting point for you to express your own creativity and make that individual card/scrapbook page that is personal to you.
Apologies to my followers for my recent lapse in posting but as you know I have had a fracture in my wrist which is now only becoming a little easier to cope with. I still have a long way to go with it before it's completely functional so please bear with me.

I hope you enjoy the sketch , happy crafting

SKETCH # 38....

Hi !! Another little sketch for you to play with. Sorry I've not been around much but I've got a plaster on my hand and arm due to an accident a couple of weeks ago. Some dinner plates fell on my hand while I was putting the dishes away in the cupboard, so not much crafting being done I'm afraid.

Hope you enjoy the sketch, we'd love to see what you make with it...

Sketch # 37

Vee has asked me to upload a new sketch. Poor Vee in unable to do much at the moment as she has had a little accident and has her arm in plaster. We wish her a speedy recovery.
I hope you like the sketch I have drawn for you and we both look forward to seeing what you come up with. Have fun.

Elaine's card for sketch # 35

Hi there! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I just popped in to show you Elaine's fab card with Sketch #35
I love that image and the colours are really pretty, and I love how she has carried the design to the inside. A really great take on the sketch.


HA HA.. Great minds think alike, Elaine has beat me to

I used this great sketch by Vee to create this Good Luck card. I did use slightly different shapes and a little poetic licence, so I hope you don't mind Vee.
I am looking forward to see what everyone else comes up with.

Carly's fab card with Sketch #34

Hello again I just had to post this fab card from my lovely DT buddy Carly using Sketch #34. I just love these greens they're gorgoeus and how handsome does Edwin look in his Robin Hood outfit. CUTE..... Thanks for sharing it with us Carly.

Sketch # 34

Hello again, I had a little time to myself this morning so I've drawn another sketch. I hope you like it . I've put the sentiment to the side this time just for a change, feel free to change it if you prefer.
Above is the card I made with this sketch.
Have a lovely weekend.

Hi there, It's been a few weeks since a new sketch was posted due to my bathroom being re fitted, and it's still a long way from being finished, unfortunately..... so I've taken some time this after noon to post this one for anyone who fancies having a play with it. I thought a tall card would be nice for a change and kept it nice and simple, but you can obviously adapt it to suit any shape.

I Hope you enjoy the sketch, and would love to see what you make with it...

As promised my card to go with the sketch. I hope you like it and that it gives you some inspiration.

Sketch# 32

Vee has asked me to put on another sketch. It is a fairly simple sketch again, but if you wish it could be a bit more complicated, its you to you.
I shall upload a card I have made from this sketch just shortly. I'm waiting on hubby photographing it! As always we look forward to seeing all your creations.

Hi!! A slight delay posting this weeks sketch for you as I've got workmen in installing a new heating system, so the house is upside down at the moment and will be for the rest of the week. So I've brought my laptop downstairs and hopefully I can carry on with some work while my craft room is out of commission.
Hope you are all enjoying this lovely weather, I think summer has finally arrived!!!

Enjoy the sketch, we'd love to see what you make with it...

Vee's card using Elaine's sketch....

Hi there, this is my card using Elaine's fabulous sketch. The image is Vicky from The Sketching Stamper coloured with Copics, DP is Papermania Aqua pack and Peach dots from Wild Asparagus. Why not have a play with this fab sketch you'll love it.
Happy crafting...

I have just made a card using my sketch. As you see it is not an exact copy, I have used a little poetic licence and used a circle for the image. I look forward to seeing other interpretations.

Sketch #29

Sketch #29
It has been a while since I posted a sketch for Vee. So I have come up with this fairly simple plan. Lots of you have lovely border punches so it would be lovely to see some of them. It is great to see so many fantastic cards made from our sketches, I love to how sketches can be interpreted in lots of ways. Remember they are only guidelines and the proportions can be altered to suit whatever stamps or digi images you have.
Have fun.
