Friday Friends

See no embellishments, just couldn't think what to put on it, funny thing is I quite like it. I did pop something on the corner and hated it so off it came.
The sketch is from Dawny P at Papertake weekly and the image is High Hopes. I wasn't going to cut the image out but got carried away colouring while watching telly and went over the edges. The papers are a free download from Summertime Designs and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps, I must check out their other sentiment stamps sets cos I've used this set so much.

There some more candy over at Shirleys aka Nannieflash.

Its been a real struggle this week my poor joints don't like our British weather and I didn't even venture in my craftroom yesterday. I'm also disappointed that I can't go to the NEC this weekend if only to meet the many of bloggers that are meeting up but really a long journey won't do me any good at the moment anyway.
But I shall cheer myself up that I've been invited as GDT for November on one of my favourite challenge blogs, this blog has encouraged me to use some stamps that I thought were gorgeous but I struggled to use.Only to find out that my colouring has improved so much over the years that I was so pleased how they're turned out that I'm now such addict that I can't leave a certain shop unless one falls in my basket.
No idea, you will have to wait till tomorrow to find out.

Hi Debby,
I love this really cute card. The colours and papers do it all - the embellies aren't missed at all. Sometimes I think less is more. Great image so well coloured.
