Sketch and Stash, My Time to Craft and Crafty Muse

Hi Everyone! I hope you've all had a good week! What a beautiful day it is today, perfect for sitting outside and crafting!
Well, here are the projects I've made for challenges this week...

Sketch and Stash

The sketch this time at Sketch and Stash is a little bit open, there is still a sketch to follow, but you can place your sentiment and embellishments wherever you wish!
For my card I used my new scallop cards from Craftwork Cards which I got at the NEC, a bargain £5 for 50!! The image is also from one of the sets from the Daisy and Dandelion stamps which I'd not used. This is either Pickle or Onion (I think!!) I'm a little confused with all their names at the mo!! The papers are from the Clare Curd mega stack and the flower is a freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft this month!

My Time to Craft

The challenge this week at My Time to Craft is 'Island Fun'. We would like to see something tropical on your cards, whether that be tropical colours or tropical theme. Straight away I thought of this image of Dottie from the 'Dress Up Dottie' Collection, and I decided to give her a textured skirt using some cross stitch thread. The sandcastle and sentiment are from the 'Fun Time Dottie collection' I decided to piece them together. There are so many ranges now of the Charmed Downloads, but these early Dottie downloads will always be my favourites!!

Crafty Muse

Sammi has worked her magic again and has created some fabulous Easter downloads, and what's even better than fabulous images is FREE fabulous images!! they are available on the Crafty Muse site with the one condition that you use them to enter the challenge this fortnight where the theme is 'Easter'.
I decided to make an Easter basket, I first made one of these at school and the charm of them has never wavered for me!! I made this basket over a week ago now and as you can imagine, the chocs are no more he he!!

Well, that's it for another week! Thanks for looking as always and remember to leave me a comment so I can come and visit you when I do my blog hopping next Monday evening!

Love Becky xx
