CRAFT Challenge #331 Sketch

We had good news yesterday: my daughter has been over from Ireland to have her regular blood tests to check that she's still in remission from the cancer she had in 2013. Not only is she still clear, she now only needs to be checked every 6 months instead of every 4 months! Yay!!!

Now it's Thursday again, and October! I swear there are fewer hours in the day than when I were a kiddiewink, it's the only explanation for why time seems to evaporate! But Thursdays are good, because Thursday means another fab Challenge at C.R.A.F.T Challenge and this time we have a terrific sketch designed for you by Jo. (Check out her blog for a recipe for Dutch Apple Pie! Yum!)


Our fab sponsors:

Great Impressions


and for the Top Three:

Sunsational Stamps


And now my card - another Christmas card! (I'm so impressed with myself for getting on with them!)


I used Willow With Christmas Candle from the sadly-missed Whiff of Joy. I used a Spellbinders die to cut the blue mat, and Lawn Fawn stitched snowflake die with silver card for the three snowflakes. The paper is Lili of the Valley, the ribbon is from stash and the sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps and is heat embossed.

Have a go at the sketch, you can flip it or turn it, but it must be recognisable in your creation! Look at my teamies' fab creations for inspiration!

Thanks for reading this loooong post!

love Mags B x
