Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #104

Take Me Away

Good morning everyone today is the 1st June and that means it's the first day of Winter here in New Zealand and Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  They said on the news last night that April and May were our hottest Autumn months ever recorded in history and it has been very warm.  I think today the weatherman knew it was the first day of June and the temperature has dropped a little as I'm feeling it this morning.  This weekend it's a long weekend to celebrate the Queen's Birthday Weekend, I'm so looking forward to it as I'll have both my boys home this weekend.  Liam thought that last weekend he was being big and mature and wanted to stay at Boarding School for the weekend, I was a little upset  but knew that he had to try it for himself.  He thoroughly enjoyed himself but we have all missed him so much, I also think that this week will be a long one for him being away for a fortnight from us, when I spoke to him last night he was missing us and couldn't wait to come home this weekend.

Congratulations to all out winner this week there were some awesome cards with just so much details and creativeness.

This week Arlana has another wonderful sketch

Now drop over to our Design Team at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and look at their awesome cards they have created especially just for you this week.

Card Recipe:
Base: White SU
Papers and Card: Silver Paper from Rosies Studios, Silver Corrugated Card Board.  Blue Bazzill
Design Papers: One Heart One Mind and used both sides.
Image: Take Me Away from Tiddlyinks
Colour Medium: Copics, atyou Spica, in silver and black, blue glitter gel pen.
Silver and Blue ink sponge for the edges.
Tools: Corner rounder, pop dots, glue dot.  

Embellishments: Instead of using paper for my green strips in the sketch across the top and bottom of the page I found this awesome ribbon that was sheer and had circles of blue and silver I knew this would work perfectly with my image and paper I was using.  My embellishments are meant to be bubbles cut out of glitter card and the pink flowers are from my stash and they are meant to match the flowers in her hair.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week of crafting and a great weekend.

Hugs always

We had a long weekend a few weeks ago - we celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday and last weekend it was Memorial Day in United States. It's amazing how we all have so many different things to celebrate.

Such an adorable card - I LOVE all that sparkle and glitter!!! A real beauty!

Have a great long weekend.

Hi Kathy, It is so hard when our kids want to stay somewhere and not come home. I am sure you will enjoy having him home this weekend. They just have to be so grown up. I love your card this week. And, I have been loving the glittery embellishments you have been using on your cards. They have added such a nice bling. The little circles and flowers tie in so well with your image. Super sweet Kathie! Have a wonderful week!
Hugs, Nancy

Hello Kathie, you are right. Your sheer ribbon is so perfect with your image. It looks like bubbles. What a fun image to use! I love the blue and silver with the touch of fushia. Lovely feminine combo. Love the glitzy look of your card! Have a fun weekend with your family.
Hugs, Judi

Fab card Kathie! I love all the sparkle you added. You can't beat a nice bubblebath. I hope you have a lovely weekend with your family, my daughters off on her 1st school trip later this month for 4 days. She's very excited, I'm dreading it she never stays away from home.
