SOUS Card Sketch Reveal # 7

Good morning fellow scrappers
 and card makers
It's a fine Wednesday morning
 here in Scotland
Clear, as in NOT raining,
and cold, as in freezing!!!!
The good news is that I am
 headed down under again
 in a couple of weeks,
and it is Hot Hot Hot
down there - yipee!!!!
Meanwhile, it is time for the
newest card sketch over at
the best sketch site in town
Here is my sweet baby take
on the sketch, which I
have rotated - about as
 adventurous as I

The unique sketch (rotated) by
our own beautiful Leah

The paper range is
"Little Bo Peep" from Crate Paper,
including the title piece. 

Flowers and pearls are from Kaiser,
 the leaves are actually a green Kaiser
 flower chopped up and I have
whitewashed the flowers, leaves
and paper edges with a
wee bit white paint

Ribbon and lace are from stash,
Bazzill cardstock and a
 wee Francheville "Love" tile

OK, now head over to
for more inspiration from my
 fellow card making DT members
Have a go at the sketch yourself,
and be in with the chance of Top 3
See you there

Wedding Party - SOUS DT Reveal

My goodness, Friday again,
time for the newest sketch over at

This photo of DH and I was taken
 at younger BILs wedding in
 November two years ago, in Scotland.
Boy, is that two years already!
The beautiful original sketch by
our own Nanne

The beautiful paper is by
My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Collection
"Portobello Road"!!!
Couldn't believe the name of
 the collection, after all the
 Papermania "Portobello Road"
 layouts I did from London
 - is there no escape!!

The title tag is also from
 the collection, to which I
 have added a wee 'wedding' rubon

I fussy cut the little bird
and his frame - perfect for the date

The large flower is Prima - gorgeous
The ribbon, silver trim and
 wee roses are from my stash

Also used Bazzill c/s,
silver Making Memories brads,
silver Kindyglitz and
Pumice Stone Distress Ink

Close up detail of the
Martha Stewart punchwork
 using "Spiral Arches"
- punched and layered twice

Good Times indeed....
Now, head on over to
 and see what my fellow
 DT members have done with
 this great sketch
And then have a go yourself
Can't wait to see your interpretation
See you there

World Card Making Day

Yesterday was
World Card Making Day
So, I decided to make
some cards for charity

I've kept them pretty simple,
using some free papers and
 images from a card making magazine

Adding a few bits of ribbon,
some sentiments and a wee bit of bling

Nothing too complicated,
but it was fun

Thanks for dropping in
See you next time

SOUS Card Sketch Reveal # 6

Yay, it's Wednesday, and it's time
for the newest card sketch over at

The great sketch from our own Leah

I had fun with this sketch
 and some Nestabilities

I have used Spellbinders "Floral Ovals"
and "Classic Ovals"

The verse is by Heidi Grace
 "Only Time"

The flower and papers are from 
my stash, and the wee branches
 are a punch

A pretty little card that came
together pretty quickly.
I'm happy with it.
Now, head on over to
and see the beautiful cards from
 my fellow DT girls,
and then for a chance at Top 3
and to be featured on the
 SOUS blog, have a go
at the sketch yourself.
See you over there
