I was (and shedding a tear - what a sook) until the football came on!! Nothing stops the footy!! Thought I'd let DH enjoy his favourites (the Broncos) and I'll catch up with the rest of the Royal Nuptials tomorrow.........can imagine it will be played over and over just a few hundred times.

It's high time I shared the other cards I made for the Verve Sketch Challenges for April. Here are the final 3 sketches....

Hey there Papercrafters!

I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend...we sure did. Today DD and I head off for some Retail Therapy so that will be a lovely way to finish off the hols:-))

I've been playing with Chupa's CASE Study Challenge and had fun CASE'ing this sweet card from the current Muse Silke Ledlow....


I stuck with the coloured PP panels down the left hand side, sentiment stamped bottom right, a Copic coloured image and a central focal point and came up with this....

CASE Study #36
Patterned papers and chipboard pieces are from Basic Grey's Kioshi range.
