A Challenge at Crafty Alley...

Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a super crafting weekend... I've decided to take part in one of the challenges set by the lovely Michele Roos over at Crafty Alley. Here is the sketch she'd like you to follow...


And here is my submission...

I have gone with Kenny K's Queens Cutie, which I had coloured ages ago. She's been lying on the shelf for far too long now, so here she is...  I love this paper which was part of a scrapbooking pack Kendall had purchased a while ago. Just lying around, so I just grabbed it. Super colours. The sentiment is a new one, which I'll be using quite a bit. It's a local stamp and I just love that font. The pearls are all flat-backed, bought from my friend Paola's shop.

As you browse through blogland you pick up little tips here and there and I've decided to try something new when sticking down my sentiment. In the middle I placed sticky foam and at the ends just plain glue or sticky tape. Gives it that bent sort of shape. I quite like it.

That's it for now... catch up with you later.  I see a lot has been going on in blogland. I've tried to leave some comments on a few of your blogs, but it is going so slowwww, that I gave up. Will try again later or else I'll run out of airtime, so apologies.

Take care, hugs Sharon x

Hello Sharon, love the card! The image is so sweet. Great details and colors.

It's so nice to stop by your blog and see your goodies. The summer months have been so busy for me. I hope to stop by more often.
