Anyone for Anya + Sketch Saturday

Oh my paws and whiskers! I'm so sorry I haven't been around for a while. I have discovered the most useless key on my laptop: it disengages the link to the Internet. I must have hit it by mistake and I was doing my nut trying to find out what was wrong!

Luckily I have a teenaged neighbour, who sorted the problem. In five minutes.

I have been carding while away, of course. Here's one with one of my new stamps from The Greeting Farm which I bought from Quixotic Paperie I love these characters!



The Challenge at Anyone for Anya is 'Fabulous Flowers'. The bp are from a Kate Knight pack, which was free with 'Cardmaking and Papercraft' magazine, and the blue square has some very pretty flowers on it which I cleverly covered with the sentiment, d'oh!

The sketch is from Sketch Saturday It's one I'll be using again, hopefully with a bit more care so the bps show a bit better!

I am practising my distressing and used Weathered Wood around the inner square and rectangle, and I had a go at stickling the edges. I need more practice at that, too!

Anyway, thanks for looking, and let's hope we get some June sunshine soon instead of this chilly wind and rain!

luv, Mags
