Friday Sketchers #48

What a flaming week it's been so far.... Work hasn't really calmed down much as we've just lurched from one drama to another, but I do feel a little bit more like myself now thankfully. Thanks for all of your concern, you are all just lovely. I really appreciate your good wishes.

I have had some good news though...... Tracy has asked the Dies to Die For DT (me included!) to stay on permanently! I'm so over the moon - thanks so much Tracy!

Unfortunately (and typically!), I don't have a DTDF inspired card to celebrate with today! However, I had a lovely time making this one for Friday Sketchers #48 as I got to play with one of the delicious Gorjuss girls that Vicki sent me!

In hindsight (which is obviously a WONDERFUL thing), I should have moved the ticket down a bit to fill that space. Heigh-ho, still like it though!

Goodie List........
Stamps: Sugar Nellie.
Digital Paper: Manda Bean - Even Sweeter Stuff - Sweet Shoppe Designs.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Ticket from Designer Digitals and ribbon from stash.

I've been a very lucky girly AGAIN this week as I've been spoilt by yet another crafting chum. I was recently sent a $25 voucher for Unfortunately, as .com is the US version of the site, I couldn't use it as they wouldn't deliver anything I actually wanted to the UK. Grr. So.... I called upon my lovely friend Aimee and she very kindly agreed to accept delivery for me. Well, my parcel from her arrived yesterday.... Inside were the Label 1 Nesties I had ordered and (just because she is totally wonderful!), Aimee had included a big pack of clear stamps (complete with block and ink pad!) and a tin full of punched flowers and some felt ones too. It was a big surprise and totally unexpected. Thank you SO MUCH Aimee - you are a superstar! You really didn't have to but I'm kinda glad you did as my new goodies are awesome! Mwah! ~♥~

Right, best go and do some work, I 'spose.... Toodles!

Congrats on your permanent DT position, Stacey! :)

I love this card - stunning colouring!.. She's adorable.. gorgeous - indeed!!! :))

The mailman will be with you soon - sorry it took a while with me, smearing some of the images with my new Adirondack stamp pad, made be more careful stamping new ones *lol*!... I'm just not used to that kind of ink pads that don't make the images dry immediately!.. A new experience - and it put my patience to test.. Had to leave tons of paper around in my flat overnight, to dry! *LOL* ;)

I wish you a wonderful new week!!♥
Hugs, Hege
