Sweet Sunday Sketch #29

Can you hear me panting?.... I think I may have JUST scraped in by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin with this one!!!!! Good Grief!!!! Talk about leaving it to the last second!!!!

The lovely Karen has once again set a fabulous sketch for us to play with, this week a lovely Loooonnnngggg card!!!! oooohh it's very nice and very FUN!!!!

Here is my creation:-

And here is the fabulous Karen sketch:-

Nice huh!!!!

Now by looking at this card would you believe me if I told you that I had EVERY intention of making a BOYSIE card!!!! Oh yes indeed I did!!! But, well, I guess you can see how successful I was at that. The reason... well my littlest poppet is not very well, and it would appear that she was coming down with this NASTY last night, which in turn led to her not sleeping very well, which of course meant that Mummy didn't get any sleep either..... soooooo... making something out of my comfort zone, by that I mean anything other than PINK....well kinda wasn't happening today... LOL... so I pulled out my PINK and off I went.

I started with Riding Hood Red (which I was going to use anyway if this had been my BOYSIE card) then added some Very Vanilla and a layer of Pink Pirouette DSP from the Candy Lane pack (MY FAVE!!!) . There's some more Vanilla in the form of scallops then some more Riding Hood Red which I stamped using the Branch from.... wait for it.... "Great Friend" (it's stamped in Riding Hood Red). Then I added a little more Pink DSP and another little bit of Vanilla which I'd stamped the frame from Great Friend in Close to Cocoa. The GORGEOUS Flutterby is stamped in Riding Hood Red and the entire section, each and every layer is popped up on dimensionals. The sentiment is from my Hostess set "Sweet Little Sentiments" and is stamped in Close to Cocoa onto some Vanilla and then mounted onto some Riding Hood Red and I then added a little Pink Pirouette flower from my Felt Fusion Too and a little Rhinestone Brad.

Given the night/day/night I've had I'm actually REALLY pleased with how this one turned out. THANKYOU my dear friend Karen, for providing us with such wonderful sketches each week!!!!

Hope you like this one.

Oooh, fabulous card Sarah - I love the long cards and your colours are great. Hope the little one gives you more sleep soon and gets better; I can sympathize with you, I'm going thru the same at the moment. Take care x

HI Sarah-Jane,

I so know where you are coming from. We've had two bouts of nasites in two weeks (one for each kid) but if this is what you can do when your suffering sleep deprivation I'm looking forward to what you produce in healthy mode. Love the scalloped edge on both sides, how you've balanced the Riding Hood red throgh the card and the little pink P flower.
