Sweet Thinking Faye...


Morning Muffins!

Saturday morning, of course, means a faberoony new Sketch from Jo, over at Sketch Saturday. We're joined this week by our regular sponsor; The Craft Barn. You really must check out the gorgeous work from the rest of The Saturdays , they ROCK!


Be gentle with me though, because this sketch very nearly had me beat. With less than a month to go until Christmas, I am now in complete denial and decided to ignore all the Christmassy stash on my desk and make something pink and girly instead.


I was determined I was going to make some flowers and use these papers and then the rest of the card had to fall in around it. Of course, there was no falling, and I've been battling with it since last Sunday. I think this is Plan C, possibly D. Thank goodness for Sweet Thinkin' Mae!

I hope you have a great weekend. I'm off to stick my head back in the sand...

I would like to enter this card at:

Flutter by Wednesdays - Open
Sweet Stampin - Punches and Dies

What a stunner! My niece would love this - just the right amount of cute and feminine for a teenage girl. I caved and bought Christmas cards a few weeks ago - I know when I'm beaten and unless the Boy Wonder succeeds in his mission to build a time machine within the next couple of weeks, there is no way I'm going to make anywhere near the number I need. Hey ho! Have a lovely weekend xxx PS It's punches/dies over at Sweet Stampin' this week if you want to enter your lovely card!

Well I think this is absolutely blimmin well gorgeous! And a fab take on the sketch, it's so pretty :o)

I know what you mean about the whole Christmas thing though... I thought I was fairly organised but I've had some orders and also realised I've not made cards for the boys to give to their school/ nursery friends. So not organised at all really lol!
