Sketch & Stash Challenge # 1

Wow yet another new challenge blog, I am in craft heaven! Pop on over to Sketch & Stash Challenge Blog . You have to use the sketch given and incorporate any new or nearly new products you may have. You may rotate the sketch keeping its shape in tact. I have turned mine onto it's side and have used some new papers and flowers that I was given for Chrimbo. Also my dear friend Lyndsey sent me this super image from Penny Black, think her name is 'Ginger'? Have used a super cerise scallop card, some Imaginease paper, Prima Hydranga's, some little pink flowers from stash and black Doodlebug furry brads. Have attached a georg pink clip and some little black/white plastic flowers. My sentiment is an old one from Woodware.

Have had a mixed day today. Work was good, very busy. We got a super letter from Jess's headmaster congratulating her on 100 percent attendance and on her great work in class and homework. He gave her 500 house points, what a little star she is, I am so proud! Got home and then my washing machine leaked everywhere and started walking across the kitchen. Enough is enough! I have put up with leaks and creaks for a couple of months now, so got straight on the web and have ordered another one. Only problem is they won't deliver until Tuesday. Never mind, I got a good price and my bessie mate Sharon is gonna wash the school uniform for me, won't be cruel and make her wash my smalls, lol. Anyway, glad I made time for this little card, am chuffed with how it turned out after all the stress. Hope you like it? PS wasn't the blogger poorly last night? I know of so many ladies that had problems, lets hope it was a one off hey! Night night, Heidi xxx

Hello Heidi,
Fabulous card, love the colours and flowers you have used. Glad you liked the image, just let me know if you need anymore. Thanks for asking about Abbie, turns out its not chicken pox after all. She has a viral infection which has then turned into a bacterial one with a touch of impetigo.
