SOUS Card Sketch Reveal Day

G'day from sunny
 Brisbane, Australia.

Here again with a beautiful
card sketch reveal from
 with another great sketch from
 our Leah.

My take on the sketch...

Leah's sketch, which I have rotated.

Using the gorgeous papers
 from the
 "Lovely" collection by Authentique.

With a stunning flower
 from Prima "Belle Arte Sachette"

Gorgeous butterfly from my stash,
could be Prima??

My favourite frond die
 from Marianne Creatables
 "Leaves Set"

And a pretty little Valentines card,
 just a few days late.
Will use it next

Now, you must head over to
 and see the cards from
 my fellow DT girls - stunning.

And, don't forget to mark
 your calendar's for the next
 SOUS sketch reveal on
 1st March, a joint Blog Hop

SOUS Sketch Reveal Day # 101

Belated Valentine's Day
This post is scheduled,
and hopefully has posted on time
I am currently somewhere
over the Indian Ocean,
en route to Brisbane,
I left Scotland yesterday,
 and won't get to Brissie
until tomorrow, yuck.....
Never mind,
off to spend a month with
 hubby, and catch up with Tracey,
Annette, and hopefully Lizzie,
 all from the SOUS DT.....
Talking about SOUS,
 that is why I'm here, hee hee....
It is Sketch Reveal Day # 101
 over at
We have another great sketch
 from our own Leah to
 play with, and
 here is my take....

Leah's Sketch....

The papers I have used are
 from the
 "Lovely" Collection by Authentique

The gorgeous big bloom
is from Manor House Creations
 "Winters Song - Embers"

The little pink flowers are
Prima "Charlotte Coral Ice",
"Petunia Rondo" and
 "Classic Lace Ayer Shire"
 with the wee roses,
and the ribbon, from my stash.

I have again used my new
 favourite die from
 Marianne Creatables "Leaves Set"
(they could have given the set a
 better name than that!!).

The black leaf swirls are
 from the Spellbinders die
 "Belle Rose" and the large
 frame around the photo is
"Grand Labels Twenty-Three".

Photo is DH and I last year,
 just after we arrived back in
 Scotland. Yes, the sun
 does shine here sometimes!!!

Now you need to head over to the
 and see what gorgeous layouts
 my fellow DT girls have
 made using the sketch,
 they are all stunning
 - love this team.
Then why not use the sketch
and create your own
 beautiful layout,
 we would love to see
your interpretation.
In the meantime,
 I will complete my journey
and talk to you from
