Sketch Saturday #40

Wow, where did that week go???....Saturday again already, I've only managed to post 2 cards this week!!, but having said that I am always so glad when the weekend does come around cos it means another fab new challenge at Sketch Saturday .

This week we've got something a bit different, with lots of layers.....maybe we'll get to see a few more scrapbook pages and if the sketch isn't enough to get you going, we have been kindly sponsored this week by The Craft Barn.....there is a lovely prize and lots of fabulous offers, so hop over to the blog for all the details.

The DT have done an amazing job yet again....what an amazing bunch of talented ladies....but don't look too closely..... Jeanette and I have used the same image lol!!

I've gone for something a bit different with the blue hair....what do you think?.....I asked the lovely Marlene for tips on colouring the hair black cos I was a bit worried she was going to end up looking like a little old lady...thanks hun....but when I got the stamps, I immediately coloured them all in, one had black hair, one red, one brown, then I went a bit wild and did violet and cerise and blue....and to be honest I think they all looked look out for more alternative colours next time

Here are the details
  • Image: Gorjuss Girls by Sugar Nellie (as if you all didn't know!!)
  • Paper: BG and Coredinations CS
  • Medium: Promarkers and Copics
  • Flowers and brads from stash
  • Sentiment: AmyR Friends Sentiments from ATS

Thanks for stopping by, it's gonna be a busy day, my beautiful daughter is 4 today, so today is all about her....I love her with all my heart, she makes me laugh every day....I know she can't read this but ..........HAPPY BIRTHDAY GORGEOUS GIRL XXXX

Congratulations on your little girls birthday sweetie!! And I think this Gorguss girl looks very pretty with blue hair, few people can carry it but she certainly can. I received mine yesterday and mounted them this afternoon so I hope to be stamping them up this evening... aren't they gorgeous!! Love how you coloured them. Have a great weekend sweetie and hope the birthday is everything your little one dreams of :).
