Team Retreat

I'm at my annual team retreat, having fun crafting with no cooking or cleaning to worry about! Even blogging from my iPad again!

I've decided to do a few sketch challenges to get the creative mojo happening (it always disappears at the beginning because of all the packing, planning and organising) so I tried this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Stamps: Flowering Flourishes, And Many More
Inks: Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Early Espresso
Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Accessories: Vintage Faceted Buttons, Painted Blooms Cotton Twine

A sketch challenge

Hi all, well its been a long time since I've blogged but with help from my beautiful friend Louise Sharp, my blog is getting a much needed facelift and I'm inspired to start blogging again!

I thought I'd start with a sketch challenge. I found this one over at and had fun creating my card in under 7 minutes!

Here is my simple take on the sketch.

I've used:
Stamps: Starburst Sayings
Inks: Bermuda Bay
Paper: Strawberry Slush, Basic Grey, Whisper White, Confetti Celebrations DSP
Tools: Starburst Framelits and Big Shot Machine
