Friday Sketchers #112

Good afternoon! Another fab sketch from Friday Sketchers this week, although I am a little close to the deadline - to busy entertaining my 2 monkeys during the holidays! I've had this paper (Sassafras "Hog Heaven") a while but couldn't find quite the right image to with it, then I came across Squiggle Stamps! This little gal is "Daisy with Toadstools" - ain't she perfect for this paper? The charm, gems and buttons are from my stash. Thanks for looking!

Hello - I know, flying a little close to the deadline for this one, lol!! I haven't worked with acetate for a while so Cupcakes Craft Challenge #99 was a great opportunity! The images and sentiment are one of several new releases from Pollycraft "Baby Love". The 2 sides of the card allowed me to "hang" the washing line after being printed on acetate. The papers are DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Boy. The flowers as always are from Wild Orchid Crafts! Thanks for looking!
