Willow Sketchie Challenge

Ohh really dreadful pictures once agan - sorry chicks xxxx

It's time for our second Willow Sketchie Challenge and this week, the sketch has been set by the crafty goat girl herself, the lovely Heidi. It's a fabulous sketch so nip over and have a butchers :))

As always, there is a twist, and this time it is to use stitching and buttons
So this is what I did.

That cute lil stamp and all the papers are Willow and I did a bit of Cuttlebugging to add a bit of interest. Trust me, IRL the colours are not as dreary and wishy washy as they seem to be here!!! I'm telling ya, I am turning into Donald Pleasance!!! It must be my eyes lol xxx

I added a bit of Glamour Dust in the recesses of the embossed bit, and also over the stamp, which was not coloured at all. I just stamped it straight onto pale pink paper.

Ohh and shock horror - is that a peel off lurking in the corner???
I'm afraid it is. I do think they have a place although I am not a big fan, so you won't see many of them here. But I thought it looked ok - nice and neat and tucked away.

Here's the stitching - fake natch, cos I cannot sew. Well I can a bit, but I can't be bothered dragging the machine out from the complete mess that is under my stairs. I've got one of those lil dinky ones but I have never used it and I think it only does one stitch. But slap slap and shame on me for not trying it - lazy mare!!!!


I love those teeny tiny heart buttons. I cannot remember where I got them from cos I 've had them ages and I just know there were loads in the packet and they are pink and pretty lol xxx.

So mosey over and have a look at the sketch. I cannot wait to see what you do with it.

I had a misap this morning. I was eating me Weigh Watchers toast when I realised that one of my fillings had vanished. It was there this morning when I got up, I'm sure, but I dont remember it coming out and I wasn't aware of it when I was eating. So I must have swallowed it without realising!! The earliest I could get an app is tomorrow afternoon, so now I'm eating and drinking verry carefully in case I get toothache - I soooo hate toothache!!

Be back later hopefully with another offering of the cardy type, but till then, have the most fabuslous of days xxxxxx

Ooh, Dawn that is so pretty. I love the colours. It's funny you should mention sewing but I actually, for the first time in donkeys years got my sewing machine out last night!! I might go and have a look the challenge now. I think stitching is going to be my mode du jour (?!) for a wee while anyway.

Dawny that's beautiful, it must have taken you ages to do all those layers.

Em said...

Am now heaving after reading about your filling - what are you like??!!! lol! Hope it's not hurting Dawny - I loathe dentists so don't envy you.

Your card is totally LUSH! The colours are just gorgeous, so soft and pretty. Can't believe you used a peel-off, gasp!!! Although to be fair, had you not of said I wouldn't have noticed it was one.

I too am looking forward to sunnier days so my photos don't look quite so flipping naff - these grey days are a nightmare aren't they?
