Thursday

The Ismaki #33 sketch from Beatrix was giving me a hard time till I turned the sketch and I used swirls for one of the strips. The camper van is a Little Claire design, I've paper pieced the van and used acetate for the windows not obvious by the photo, some gel pens for the flowers and while the glossy accents was out it was used on the lights and wheel hubs. Sentiment printed on the PC and the flowers from Prima. So the cards for hubby from the kids are done.
So Papertake Weekly challenge was another brilliant sketch from Katharina, I used my new stamp from Ally Pally and while I was in the paper piecing mood and I love doing it especially on stamps like her. The papers I think are two scoops from BG, the sentiment stamp is from Butterfly kisses and the two strips of ribbon and brads out of my stash.

Gill's christmas blog candy
Jeanette's candy too
Later today I might be able to colour better inside the stamped lines with my new glasses that I pick up today.
