ooooohhhhh look what I got - Fussy & Fancy Challenge + Sketch Saturday


Good morning all...well look what I got, the fabulous Mabelle of Whimsy & Stars Studio asked me to join her Guest Designer team for a 3 month period and as I love these gorgeous images of course I said yes...so I'm now the proud bearer of my Guest DT badge...right everyone lets hear it for the sisters, you all agreed with me yesterday that I should have a sarnie when I feel like it, so that's what went in my trolley yesterday, plus the fixings for a chicken caesar salad and garlic potatoes for last night dinner...yummy...well I'm having a full blogging day today to catch up, as my lovely Phil is off to a meeting of his Motorbike club as its coming to the road racing time of year and hes a road marshal...whenever I say that I have a vision of him in his white coat and a stetson wearing a six shooter lol...right my card for today

which of course is using a Whimsy and Stars Studio image, isn't she just beautiful shes called Blessed Expectancy and I love that sweet face, I coloured her with Distress inks and paper pieced her dress in this fabulously gorgeous punched and embossed paper this and the black and white one is from a paper pack and I haven't a clue what its called but will try and find the front of it to let you know, I have a feeling they are Memory Keepers...I wanted a contrast to the beautiful papers and decided on corrugated card but all the ones I have are coloured or kraft so I wracked my brain because I was sure I had seen some somewhere then I realised where...the inside of a packet of cheese crackers, hows that for a bit of recycling...I finished with a saddle stitched white ribbon and a huge white satin bow, the sentiment is from a bargain sheet of scrap booking quotes I bought in a sale about a year ago, the sketch is from Sketch Saturday which I tilted and Im also entering this in the Fussy & Fancy Embossing and/or Paper piecing challenge too...right now I'm off to make coffee and get blogging so I can catch up with all your fantastic work I have missed...have a wonderful Sunday everyone

Hi Mina love your card, she is so pretty in her beautiful dress!
Nice to read that your husband is a motor bike fan too. My husband is also a biker and 2 years ago we planned to go to Scotland to look around there but our health was not ok in that time so we could´nt go.
