Get Creative Card Sketch and Extra Extra read all about It !

Hi there ! Am I excited or what !!!!! Extra Extra read all about it !!!!  Whats going on.......well apart from my birthday tomorrow a new DT Post and the Get Creative July 20th reveal not a lot !!!



First Get Creative as it's the 20th of the month that means we have a new card sketch reveal

For our sketch we were asked to use the Cherry Nest products that had been so kindly supplied for us by Elina Koutsouradi who also happens to be our guest designer for July. Here is my DT piece

Am using once again acetate so unfortunately wasn't able to get a good photo ! The Cherry Nest products I used where the orange Polka Dot paper paper and the Pied De Poul . I cut out a section of my card with my Silhouette and printed the sentiment and image onto acetate, I then used the polka dot paper underneath to highlight the image .

Do pop over and check out the other fabulous DT pieces at Get Creative we have three challenges going at the moment and great prizes to be won !

Now onto my exciting news !!!! I am proud to announce that I have been selected by Katie and Cherie of Sassylilsketches to be a new Design Team member for their card sketch team !! This is not just another challenge blog ! they have an amazing forum where anyone can share not only their craftiness but anything else ( within reason lol ) that they feel would be of interest. It's a great meeting place for like minded people and so much fun !


My first official DT sketch will be in August but decided to enter their current sketch challenge just to get my feet wet .






This is my card based on the above sketch. Crafty individuals papers and sentiment, which I embossed with Hero Arts gold embossing powder and some shells that I painted ., simple and summery !

Do pop over to Sassylilsketches have a nosey round and maybe join in a challenge or two !

I was going to leave you a few more piccies but Mr Blogger has other ideas and has decided enough is enough, obviously  didn't like the look of them !

Wishing you a super fun day today I know I'm going to have one !
