Sketch


Morning Fluffers!

Saturday morning of course means time for a fabby new Challenge over at Sweet Stampin and this week, we have one of
Jo's brilliant Sketches!


We have two new sponsors this week too. We are joined for the very first time by My Mum's Craft Shop and we have some new releases from Pollycraft up for grabs.

I made this card when we were still in Norfolk, which seems like a lifetime ago already. I can't remember what I was thinking about when I made this. Probably something to do with packing! I know I really wanted to do something with bright colours, because much as I love them, I find it really hard to watercolour with them and I wanted to push myself! LOL.

When we moved to Derby, there was a night between houses where we needed to stay in a hotel. Sweet Cheeks of course loved the excitement of it all, and apart from the broken central heating being stuck on sub tropical (and you know how much I feel the cold. I think I drank about 5 litres of water!) the night passed un-eventfully.

After breakfast, when Sweet Cheeks tried to get into the kitchen, the bar and nearly had the waitress eloping with him, it was time to go. Sweet Cheeks likes lifts. Not as much as escalators; we can lose twenty minutes just going round in circles, up and down, up and down on those!

Anyway, in the lift we went. When suddenly an alarm went off. Not a quiet alarm. But one of those alarms you can hear throughout a building. Like a smoke alarm. Oh dear, me thinks. It's a bit early for an alarm to be going off like that, people won't be happy. I hope they find out where the fire is.

I look down to see what Sweet Cheeks is doing to find my very own fire starter with his finger on the big, yellow, only push in case of emergency panic buttons. Somewhere between our very high floor and the ground floor, someone deactivated the very noisy alarm, but we got some very stern looks from reception!

Right, that's it from FayeWorld this morning! You've seen my card, pop over to Sweet Stampin and see what The Sweeties have made...

Fantastic card Faye, the bright primary colours are perfect for this little guy! Don't talk to me about lifts...we got stuck in one during half-term...James lent on the side of lift as we were going up and it set off an overload alarm and the lift was stuck between floors...it had a glass door and the shoppers below were all looking up as they could only see our feet lol! We were in there for 15 minutes until they re-set the blimming thing...the point being...things don't get much better when they get older....James is nearly 17 lol! :) Donna x

Hi there Fluffy! I saw this card and thought immediately of your darling son, Sweet Cheeks! The colors are so bright and lovely with those great paper combo - the cute image looking as though he is going to get into mischief but what a pretty face! And then I read about the alarm going off and just laughed! I love these stories. Your son has the best adventures a baby could have with entertaining us! What a lovely little boy you have! :-)
