Willow Sketchie & Moving Along With The Times Challenges

Hello peeps, long time no post! Have been down in Devon for a few days, hence the lack of blogging this week. The weather was cold and blustery, but we made the most of the lovely scenery and food and had a great time!

We got back on Thursday, just in time to celebrate my daughter Amy's 'A' Level results, our girl did great! She will be going to Chichester Uni (places permitting) in September 2010. Well done Amy, we are very proud of you!

Right, to my challenges. I will apologise now, this post is going to be a long one as I am a few days late with both challenges, I have put them together in one.

Moving Along With The Times .

It is my dear buddie Clare's (Taffy) turn to do the sketch and what a super one it is too! I have used one of my new stamps, which I have had in the draw for a couple of months now, she is a Ketto 'Miss Match' stamp from Stamping Bella. My papers are Bo Bunny 'Delilah - Promise', Brown and pink Bazzill Cardstock, large and medium Papershaper flower punches. Brown and Pink Jelli dots and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards.

Another cute download from the lovely Sharon , this is called 'Keeping Warm'. Such a lovely little image to work with, am getting into this Christmas card making, lol! The lovely Karen has come up with a super sketch, thanks hun! I decided that my new papers just had to be used, they are 'My Mind's Eye', The Merry Days of Christmas - All Aglow', Red Bazzill cardstock, QK 'Dots' border die, Papershaper scallop punch, Hero Art snowflakes and Doodlebug bling.

I have a day off from the shop today, so we are giving Amy's room a lick of paint and laying some wooden flooring. Better go and give him a hand, or I will be in trouble, lol! Have a super weekend, hope to be back with another card later, if I can get away! Heidi xxx
