Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #23

Hello There!!! Apologies for being so quiet. My two little poppets have both been a little unwell this week, so I've been busy giving them extra Mummy cuddle or 'CUGGLES' as Jorja likes to say, wiping runny noses and of course the horrible task of cleaning up unpleasant little accidents... Poor little darlings. Hopefully though they are both on the mend and Mummy can get back to making more cards!!!

I just can't go the week without making a card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch. Even if it does have to be made in stages... like this card was. I started it last night, sat down again to finish it this afternoon, but had to run and fix Jorja and now finally have managed to finish it.

Here's what I came up with:-

And here is the lovely sketch Karen gave us to work with. I do have to admit I struggled a little bit with this one... not sure WHY... I think I made it more difficult that I needed too.... hmmmmm story of the week ... difficult.

I'm determined to overcome my fear of Pacific Point, so I've used it on this card. I started with some Choc Chip (chocolate ALWAYS makes you feel better, RIGHT!!! haha), and added some punched out squares of Good Morning Sunshine DSP. There is a layer of Pacific Point which I've cut with my Scallop Edge Punch and added a row of Paper Piercing above that. A touch of Choc Chip Grosgrain (see more Chocolate!!!) and a little pit of retired Pewter Hodgepodge. The sentiment is stamped in Pacific Point ( I told you I was determined... hahaha) and it is from my Basic Phrases Stamp Set. I also added a little birdie from my Cheep Talk set, and he is stamped in Summer Sun with a little bit of Choc Chip card attached for his wing.

Hope you like!!! I'm off now to devour the Rice Pudding my Mum (aka Bear) made for me.... and I have to tell you it is unbelievably SCRUMDIDILIUMPTIOUS!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
