Waffling Tuesday

I found the sketch on Sketch Saturday difficult, not sure if it was the sketch or the paper I had chosen, I fairly please with it but it was struggle. I may have gone a bit too far with the doodled dots, the paper was Daisy Bucket, the butterflies are freebie on creativity card mag ( sorry can't remember is full title but its by Do-crafts) unusual for me to use a freebie cos I don't always find them useful and I give them to Sis for her kids & card club at her school, the corners are a nestability cut in four and not forgetting Tilda who has only recently seen an inkpad.

How do you top being in the Fab 5 or being Card of the week, don't think I managed it this time, Kazan's sketch on 2 sketches4you has a zigzag border and I thought the MS doily punch would work especially with these colours which was left over from the secret project and I was making these daisies for the project too. Once I finished it I realised I missed a bit of the sketch, now thats the second time this week (yesterday I missed the strips of the BG challenge) you just know there's gonna be a third. Not sure whether to enter this for the challenge although the sketch did inspire the card. But if it doesn't work this challenge I could always use it for Papertake Weekly their challenge spots and circles so that would work.


Thanks Karin for cute award not sure on the rules but if you haven't had this one, I'm sending it you.


Thanks Ali for sending me this fabby award, you have to tell about you 5 addictions, now I had this award before but I found what I wrote originally.


1. Cardmaking and Scrapbooking
2. Craft Shopping
3. Blogging
4. Red Wine
5. Love Strictly and X factor, OK so this is so last year just add Dancing on Ice.


This post is getting extremely long but if you're still with me just wanted to mention my vistors counter that I managed to add to my blog January last year, have you seen the amount of vistors, like WOW. I'm watching it carefully cos there's a number coming up that definitely needs celebrating.
