Saturday Sketch…




sketches 880


Morning crafters, it’s a while since we’ve had a Sketch on a Saturday what with one thing and another so here’s a new one for you to try, and a lovely matching card from Gretha

Sketch #28



Winters Walk - Gretha


Gretha used one of our 2014 Christmas stamps called Winter Walk on this lovely card with papers from Pastel Dreams



You can stick to the Sketch and them embellish as Gretha did here, or you can choose to move/rotate the elements. Remember they are simply to give you inspiration and you can move things around to suit yourself

You can see all our layouts on the Sketch page at the top of the blog


As always we have daily candy so don’t forget to leave a comment. Our lucky winner from Thursday is CraftyChris, well done Chris please email your address to and she’ll send you out a little crafty prize!
