Sketchy Boards Challenge

I was lucky enough to be chosen to do a guest design spot for sketchy boards challenge. 

I was given a sketch and a colour palette to work with

and here is what I came up with.

It's a bit busier than I would have liked but I didn't seem to have the right colour papers other than heavily patterned ones.  Anyway, it still shows off my gorgeous daughter Holly and beautiful grand daughter Ivy.

Tempus Fugit

Well, time is certainly flying by for me - it's nearly Christmas :o  How can this be happening?!!
I haven't made much recently what with one thing and another but mainly my craft room has had a bit of a refurb as I wanted to reduce the amount of stash I had.  I found that I had so much stuff I didn't know where to start when creating so I had a massive clearout, throwing it all on to boxes so my husband could paint and decorate and lay new flooring for me.  Once this was done, I had an enormous amount of sorting out to do.   I was organising a Macmillan coffee morning and thought this an ideal time to try and sell some of my crafty bits and donate the money I got to a good cause.

So  basically all I've made recently are some thank you cards for everyone who attended my Macmillan coffee morning and a birthday card for my son Adam.

This is some of the craty stuff I had for sale.

Adam's card

The start of my thank you cards - I love a bit of colouring in, it's so therapeutic :)

and here are a few of the finished cards - I made about 25 in total.
