Hanglar Girl and Teddy-close up

I have used Crate Paper-Katlin range which I adore. As mentioned before, the image is a H&S (when O when will be able to buy these in the UK she cries) I have used ribbon roses, wire curls with swarovski crystals on the end for a bit of sparkle.  The punch used for the two sections is a SU punch, Ribbon, flat back pearls and a Martha Stewart rose leaf punch.  I think thats about it, I love your comments so feel free to leave yours- bye for now Jo XX

Well I absolutely loved trying out this sketch todayfrom the sketch saturday challenge blog at


Manga Lime and Orange

I just love the colour combination of the Lime and Orange. I have used Doodlebug Papers and the fabulous Manga stamp from Funky Kits.  I have coloured it in using my Prisma Colour pencils and was very unsure as to how to colour them as they are not your cutesy kind of stamps. I love the sketch and will be keeping it for future use..Here is a close up of her
