You win some... You lose some!

I made this card to fit with two of this weeks challenges. I am just in the nick of time for the sketch saturday challenge this week, but I'm a day late with the second challenge, last weeks Cute Card Thurday which was quotations! Oh well here it is anyway!

I rotated the sketch anti-clockwise. The image is the adorable 'Luvvie' by Leanne Ellis, available at Funky Kits. I just adore these images, they stamp beautifully and are so easy to colour! I coloured her with my whispers pens adding chalk around the edges. Papers are BG, black CS used to matt & layer. The ribbon was part of a candy win from the lovely Bev. The sentiment is from a K&Co kit I bought from QVC ages ago and have barely used. The swirl stamps are from a HOTP kit and the adhesive pearl are papermania {a favourite of mine at the minute}. Now this card is a bit different to my usual style and I'm not to sure whether I like it. The longer I leave it, the more I'm warming to it though!

Well I have a fun filled weekend ahead of me that I am really looking forward to. I am off to Julie's SU workshop tomorrow where the theme is 'you've got male'! Really looking forward to it as we always have such fun and I will also get chance to catch up wth the lovely Jill. Jules is a fab host and even provides home made cakes with a cup of tea! Yummy!! Then saturday night I am going out for a family meal in Doncaster to one of our favourite restaurants, 5 whole courses!! Food is my next big passion after crafting! Lol!

Sunday morning me & my mum are going to The Doncaster Dome for Stamp Magic, where I am hoping to say hello to the wonderfully fabulous Bev who will be on the Hobby House stall. I have my new craft stash funds all ready and waiting to be spent!! Then Sunday afternoon back home to Leeds to have a play with all my new stash!! Pheww! Think I'll be exhausted by monday morning when I have to go back to work!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend whatever you're all up to. I will catch up with you all on sunday night when I get back! Thanks for stopping by, TTFN!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
