Truly Scrumptious and Sketch Saturday

What a beautiful sunny day! But am I out enjoying it?! Nope - I'm indoors enjoying some prime crafting time! It's just been me at home so I've been crafting up a storm with me choons blaring... utter bliss ☺. I'm also feeling on top of the world as my neck is slowly getting back to normal now. I'm not going to say that it is doesn't hurt anymore because I would be totally lying. However, I've got a lot more movement and the pain has subsided to a manageable level. Thank God for that as I had totally bored even myself with all the whinging and whining I'd been doing about it!

Anyway, back to the crafting. I've been working hard on some things I can't show you yet... (!).... but here is something that I can! I've managed to do a bit of challenge combining so that I can enter this one card into both the sketch over at Truly Scrumptious and also the cake theme at Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge.

Oh balls. I've just realised that I've failed! Whilst adding the link to Truly Scrumptious above, I realised that I haven't made any buttons! It's now a bit late.... pants. Sorry for messing up, I'm fully aware this won't count as an entry now!

BTW, I ♥ this image! It was one I received recently from my lovely friend Zoe as part of an image swap. I have to share this with you though..... look here to see what this lovely little mousey was sent in..... Isn't that amazing?! And I can totally vouch that it is even more beautiful in real life. Thank you so much Zoe!

Goodie List........
Stamps: Whiff of Joy - Henry Celebrating Mouse, Sentiment from Elzybells.
Paper: Basic Grey - Cupcake.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Adhesive gems.

Before I go, I just want to remind you about the fabulous competition currently running over on the Dies to Die For blog where you could win a Martha Stewart Valentine Lace punch! So what are you waiting for?! Get over there and find out how you can enter!

Right, I'm off to continue my craft-fest and also have some lunch. I am Hank Marvin.... as usual! Enjoy the sunshine!

P.S. Make sure you come back tomorrow as I might have a little bit of blog candy for you.....!

Oh he's such a cutie and works brilliantly with the papers. Glad the neck is getting better even if it is slowly but be careful not to over do it.
