Hi everyone, well it's my last day in Australia today with my family.  It's school holiday's and we should have been on the ski slopes of New Zealand rather than being in Australia and getting a little winter sunshine.  As our temperatures have been really warm in New Zealand there isn't as much snow as there should be so might have a few days on the mountain when we get home and the boys go back to school on 1st August.

Today is Wednesday and it's another Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Hopefully scheduler will have been kind to me again this week and posted my card when it should have and on time.

Congratulations to our winner this week and our top 3 there were some amazing cards.

This week we have another wonderful sketch from Arlana which you'll love and I loved working with it.

Sketch #111
This week the lovely design team have been work with one of our favourite and month sponsors which is

Card Recipe
Base: White SU
Card: Black & Green Bazzill, silver glitter paper
Design Paper: Unknown
Image: Petty Shoes from DigiStamp Boutique
Colour Medium: Copics, Silver atyou Spica by Copics
Sentiment: PC generated using Black Chancery font
Tools: Cuttlebug, Nestability Deckled Rectangle, Fancy Labels 2, Classic Oval, Classic Scalloped Oval, Pop Dots, Glue Dots, Silver Ink and finger dabber for the edges.  Martha Stewart Rose leaf punch.

Embellishments: Roses I bought at SENDZ I just had to have them as I love this green.  Gems, Silver Twine I used for the hanging of the shoes. Silver glitter hearts for the shoes. This lovely silver ribbon I found in Silver and Gold I did put green ribbon on the card and it was too much so that's why I went with the silver.

I love this card and it was Jeannie that gave me the idea for this card as I fell in love with her card using this same image a few months ago.

I feel a little bit of a cheat this week as there was very little colouring but the silver applique took me ages  to stick down but I love the finish.

Wishing everyone a great week and have fun crafting.

Hello Kathie, I do hope you are having a great time on the ski slopes! Just enjoy every moment! Your green shoes couldn't be more stunning. Your silver twine is such a great accent to show them off along with your little jewels.
I also love the fancy labels. I keep thinking they are too large but you always make them look so perfect with your cards! Have a great time!
Hugs, Judi

Kathie, I fell in love with your card the moment that I saw it...just divine!! Green is my fav color and I am a silver girl. Hope your vacation has been wonderful and you still find time for the ski slopes. Hard to think of when it is near 100 degrees here. We have a friend in Australia now, on a hunting trip and he will be there for another week. Take care and talk with you soon.

Hi Kathie! Love this card - I also fell in love with this image when I saw Jeannie's card last month. You've done a great job with it. I especially love your color combo - that green is a fav of mine too. I like the sparkle you added on the image and on the sentiment frame. Hope you're having a good week.
Sharon :)
