One Card - Two Challenges!




Good morning from a sunny Scotland (for a change!!) - It's bright and the bay looks gorgeous today....I'm up early despite my night out last night, I had such a good time and the food and company was excellent! The little Zoe was just amazing such a contented baby, she giggled all night then fell asleep in her car seat , she was the belle of the ball!!!

So today's sketch on Sketch Saturday is another great one - I just love doing sketches just now..

Then Penny Black Challenge we have to use a frame.

I cut my frame with my Nesties Label Die then embossed it with the Swiss Dots Folder and added little rose buds.

My wee mouse is coloured with watercolours, the card stock is Bazzill and Core'dinations and the flowers are prima, I punched small circles and distressed the edges for the flower centres. The scallop border is from Bazzill Just the Edge, the flowery paper is from Fancy Pants.

I'm going to work on my next Kadoodle Stamps card, so hopefully will be back later with that!



The Little Zoe!
