The challenge on the Just Magnolia blog is distressing this week, so how could I resist entering? 🙂 It is my first time joining in this challenge, but I’m sure it won’t be my last! I used this week’s gorgeous sketch on the Truly Scrumptious blog.

This photo doesn’t show it but the snow flake (a Nestie die) has a coat of Crackle Accent on the Broken China distress ink and it looks really cool IRL. The image is coloured with Distress Inks.

There is a lot of distressing, all papers are inked and scraped for a worn look.

Some days I feel like this non-stop heat will be the death of me. But I also know that once summer is over I’ll be complaining about the cold, rain and wind, so there’s no pleasing me, is there? 😉

Despite the mind-numbing temps we’ve been having I managed to find it within myself to make a Christmas card. Crazy, isn’t it? I mean, it’s JULY. But Novmber will be here sooner than we’d like to think and I just don’t want to panic like I did last year.

So.

Friday Sketchers had a wonderful sketch and I just had have a go at it.

Here’s another LO I made of my girl. It’s about how she’s learning to talk and the funny words she uses. She has a juice addiction, but she calls it “chi”. 🙂

I love the sketch challenge on 2S4Y and this week’s sketch from Kazan (#13) is so scrumptuous that I just had to put aside all the Christmas cards and play along. I needed a couple of birthday cards and I made two similar cards using this sketch. I love how they turned out and I was so happy to ink up a few new stamps – the background stamps on the BasicGrey papers are from Prima’s Crenee Paris set and the clock is from Making Memories.

The sentiment tag on the second card is heat embossed with clear embossing powder and a few specks of gold ep as well.
