Sketch Time At Oldie But A Goodie

Good Mornings lovely bloggers, we have seen a bit of sunshine lately so I have my fingers crossed for today!

It's time for a brand new challenge at
I'd like to thank everyone who joined us for our last challenge, we had some beautiful creations with your 'Lace & Ribbons' be sure to check out the main challenge blog to see if you were a winner.

This time it's our lovely Francesca's turn to host and she has drawn you a great sketch to follow. I love using sketches now and to think a couple of months ago I'd never used one!
We are sponsored this week by
The main blog will have all the details of the fab prize on offer to the lucky winner
Remember to be in with a chance of winning You must use a rubber stamp (not a digi) and it must be at least 6 months old 

For my card I've used another 'Stamping Bella' image that has been unused in my drawer forever! I have a drawer full of these stamps I warn you! I also bought these filigree metal corners ages ago and have never used any before. I can't remember where I got them and the metal flowers from. The sheer blooms are from Creative Treasures and all the other flowers are WOC as is the gingham ribbon.

I hope you will join us for our 'Sketch Challenge' this fortnight, I look forward to visiting your blogs. Don't forget to visit the main blog page to see what our lovely DT have made for your inspiration

Thank you for looking
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
