Inspirational Card Sketches #9



Good morning, looks like it is getting a bit colder again ... typical now that my mum and dad are visiting from Spain!! They will be arriving at mine tomorrow now (slight change of plan) and I can't wait!

I hope you are all ready to play along with another of Dawn's fantastic sketches . Our sponsors this week are Savvy n Sassy . It was lovely that so many of you entered last week and I loved visiting your blogs :o)


Here is my effort this week. I have used this cute High Hopes stamp that I got in my DT parcel from Tracy from Dies To Die For . I just love this cute piggy and he is perfect for those difficult male cards!


I was so pleased when I realised that my little gems followed the pattern on the sketch, those balloons couldn't have been in a more perfect place!! Pop over and check out the DT's cards - they are such a clever bunch .... have a wonderful day :o)

Stamp: High Hopes 'Pickles Balloon Ride' from Dies to Die For
Medium: Prismacolor pencils + sansador
Papers: Papermania 'For Him' , Dovecraft 'Masculine'
Embellisments: Papermania buttons, Dovecraft adhesive gems

Finally a big thankyou to Shirley for this award, thanks so much hun - it is wonderful :o)
My card also fits with High Hopes challenge this week which is buttons. I was so pleased when Dawn very kindly allowed me to enter my DT card into this challenge ... thanks hun x
