Sarah Kay

This is my card for this weeks Sarah Kay Weekly Challenge, which this week is based on a gorgeous sketch. I did debate whether to get the old MS punch out but then decided I would give it a rest and just made a scalloped edge out of punched
circles - like ya do lol xxxx

At the risk of repeating myself, I am just loving my Pro Markers and I am wondering how I ever managed without them now. The paper here is PP (Little Fleurs, I so love that collection) and the ribbon and pearly bits are from Creative Pastimes in Ellesmere Port.

Also, some of you gorge blog buds that are in touch via e-mail know that for a while now I have been trying to set up another card club and have been looking around for a suitable venue.

Well..... ta dahhhhhhh and woohooooo

At last we have premises, we have advertising going on and we are ready to rock and roll in October. I am sooo excited about this, I can't tell you. If the new members are half as nice as my Saughall ladies (I just loves em to bits xx) then I will be over the moon. And I'm sure they will be cos I reckon that people who make cards are among the nicest on the planet.

Finally, the snotty grotty lergy thing seems to be beggaring off - obviously knew it wasn't welcome here at chez Dawny - and I almost feel back to normal (well as normal as I will ever be lol xxx ) Thank you for all your get well wishes - I so appreciated your kindness, lovely peeps xxxx

Have the most fantabulous of days and maybe there will be another post later if I get me work done xxxxxxx
