My very own sketch!

Thought I'd have a go at drawing my own sketches & here's my first attempt...

As you can see it's free hand & a bit wobbly but you get the idea!

I made this card with it the way I had drawn it...

And this card with it flipped sideways...

All papers & digi stamps from Funky Hand & the plastic flower is Lakeland.

Fancy having a go at my sketch?  Add your creation below & I'll pick a random winner out of the entries to win something crafty on 13th April!

I shall look forward to seeing what you create!

Sew lovely!

Something a little bit different from me today as I just had to share this wonderful find...

Bought this morning from a local house clearance place for just £20!!!  And the best bit...look what's inside...

When I paid for it the chap jokingly said "...and you can have the threads for free!"  Little did he know I'd have paid the same amount just for the threads & buttons & bits & bobs alone!  Especially these...

Now I'm left wondering who were/are Mr & Mrs Allen and what was/is their life story...

A Funky Heart!

It's time for me to share my card for the Get Funky! challenge.  This month it's all about showing some love and we want you to 'Show Us Your Heart' by including a heart somewhere on your creation.  Here's what I made...

Funky Hand papers & digistamp from Craft the Year Away CD; Kraft card; staples; flower lace from The Ribbon Girl; Queen & Co brad; Paperchase heart sticker; black fineliner pen for doodled frame.

Yes, I'm still in love with all things Kraft! I think it goes perfectly with the bright & beautiful Funky Hand papers & heart digistamp! :)

One of the (many) things I love about the Craft the Year Away CD by Funky Hand is how all the papers & digi-stamps can be printed off in any size.  This card is a tiny 4x4 inch but could be made huge as well!  How brill is that!
