Friday Sketcher 54


Happy Sunday everyone, hope you're all enjoying the weekend. I've been enjoying the fantastic weather we're having here in London. This is my entry for this week's Friday Sketchers which I thought was a great sketch. I've used one of the images I got from Katy along with papers by Mindy Terasawa at Designer Digitals. I'm not that happy with the way I've added the sentiment, it feels a bit clumsy to me. I think I try to follow the sketches a bit too literally.


You may have already seen these on Katy's blog but I thought I'd show you the card and box I made for Katy as part of our swap. With my usual indecisiveness it took longer to decorate the box than it did to make it.

And a close up of the flower, which I was really quite pleased with.

Katy is one lucky girl to get this wonderful card & box. Beautiful colours and paper - yet again, and your flowers are awesome.
Have to laugh - it always takes me longer to decorate than it does to make. I end up with flowers, leaves, ribbon strewn all over my dining room.
