CAS{E} this Sketch # 378

I'm getting some craft in before I head back to work tomorrow. The weather is closing in and I think we are in for a wet weekend, so getting the use of daylight while I can.

I've tackled CAS(E) this Sketch for the week, a simple card, nothing too exciting. Used the MFT Stamps Let's Stick Together set for this card, with a brick wall in desert sands ink colour.

Home day today - hubby is mowing lawns and I am pushing our washing machine to its limits. Ah, the shift work life. 

Take care, thanks for stopping by

My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch # 494

Back with another card. This one is for My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #494, it's a nice sketch that can be interpreted so many ways.

I stuck to the basic sketch - why try and re-invent the wheel!? I was also keen to do something monochromatic, to practice my colouring.

I've used the flower boot from MFT Stamps You Gnome Me set - which I think might have been discontinued as I cannot find it on their website. I'll link to it here, on another website so you know which one I'm talking about. 

I've used my T neutral Copics for the colouring and once coloured I added a heap of sparkle to the boot and flowers, using my Spica pen. There are so many new products that have emerged over the last ten years, boy have I got some catching up to do. 

The gift tag is a a MFT Dienamics, as is the Hello sentiment. The paper is a mix of what I had here. I've added the turquoise to add a pop of colour as it was really looking a little bland. 

I'm posting this to a friend. COVID has left us not being able to catch up as often as we'd like, messenger and phone calls only do so much. I hope it brightens her day.

Cheers, Min xx

I think I did this for a challenge, not sure which one. It got me colouring and creating backgrounds, adding life to an image.

I've used the My Favorite Things set It's a Mice Time to Celebrate to create this card.

You're So Sweet

Catching up on posting the cards I've made over the last few weeks.

This one was a just for fun. It's using the set "A Little Treat" from Create A Smile stamps. I've masked the donut to create a stack of fun donuts, with a few little lollies on the side.

The background is some colour splatters in matching colours, with some sequins to finish off. Simple yet effective.

MFT Colour Challenge 143 - Yay

It's finally happening, I'm back blogging. Good intentions, good start.

Time is my biggest issue so I have set myself the challenge of completing a few different challenges each fortnight. Late to post this one, but this is My Favourite Things Colour Challenge #143.

I used the MFT Stamps Birthday Chicks stamp set to make this one, with the MFT Stamps Distressed Patterns to make the background.

I'm definitely going to have to work on my photo skills, it's been such a long time. I don't have my light tent anymore .... hmmmm thinking cap is on.

Anyways, it's a start and I have to start somewhere. I'm happy to be back inking. It's been far too long.

Take care, Min
