Lucy's Cards - Sketch week -day 5.

The sentiment is from Ippity and the pink paper is so old I'm not sure where it came from .
I have a confession to make I stamped the sentiment upside down ,(I hate stamping directly onto a card for this very reason ).At first I panicked and tried wiping it with a wet one ,big mistake ,the card went soggy .After drying it off I stamped again,the right way up this time and to make everything blend together I used some brown ink and sponged over a stencil shape to enclose the sentiment. Does that make sense, anyhow I managed to save the day and it doesn't look too shabby.

Sing it loud

Lucy's Cards - sketch week - day 4

The music paper is 'dear lizzy' and the bird paper is from 'Christina Re'.The bird stamp is from Inkadinkado. The sentiment is from Ippity .

Tea and Cookies

Papercraft Star - challenge 77 -Tea or Coffee - My teapot image came from 'a piece of cake ',the doily from the Stamp Spot, the friendship sentiment is Kaisercraft I think.

Happy New Year .I hope you all had a enjoyable holiday break ,not a slice of turkey or plum pudding passed my lips but my trousers are so very tight.My fridge is still full of goodies ,this morning I saw a bowl of cherries so I think a cherry crisp is on the menu for dinner,Steve has just done a dry rub for some ribs,yum.
