I have used these stunning design papers by Maja Design at LLC

I have used this cute mini pom pom trim pearl string 
 and beautiful clear rhinestone pendant all from LLC with rusty stars painted with gesso and sprinkled with artdeco glamour dust.

Love these little bells with the doohickey volume 2 club die

The Sketchy Challenges #80 Karina's Sketch & Furry friends theme

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

How are you ??...been a busy couple of weeks where does the time go ...always have time though to get crafty !!.
 There is a brand new challenge at 
The Sketchy Challenges
for November . 

Here is Karina's fantastic sketch ...It's gorgeous and fun to play with and such a cute theme 
Furry Friends 


I have chosen the cutest stamp ever it's Tilda with Millie the mouse and I have coloured her with distress ink pads & reinkers on Langton cold press paper. I also used the thimble stamp for them to sit on  .I made him brown instead of white as that is what I have seen in the garden lol and have saved many from the jaws of Mr Kiefe my cat !! ...furry friend !!

I used Papermill linen card as the base and used Pion designer papers Alma's sewing room for the layers and die cuts. I have used a mix of blue & pink frantage and glitter tuille to to add some sparkle;0)

The doily die behind her is from my bloggy friend !!. The bow & tag die are from Magnolia. The stunning lace and pearl trims and most of the embellies are from Live & Love Crafts . 


The pearl brads are from the hobby house !!

I hope you can join us at The Sketchy Challenges and see all the wonderful design teams inspiration and meet our wonderful new designers !!
