Sketch and Stash and Cute Daisy May

Oops, it's been almost a week since my last post, there just hasn't been enough hours in the day to do anything but I think I'm just about catching up!!
We are up to Challenge 12 at Sketch and Stash, here is this fortnight's sketch to follow...

We have been sponsored by The Character Cafe this time and all the Design Team were kindly given an image to work with...


I chose 'Rainy Day Sophie' and I thought she'd look good with a Vintage theme. My new stash was the digital download, and my Basic Grey Boxer papers, and my neglected stash was my script paper and swirly stamps which haven't been used in a long time!!

I also made this card for the challenge too, this time I have used my new Sugar Nellie stamp which I got for my Birthday. The papers are again Basic Grey (think they are from the 'Sugared' pad).
Today is also Cute Daisy May day, and the new theme is Pink and Green. I think this is a very popular colour combo so maybe you'll join us this fortnight...

I couldn't resist using this Daisy May image, how sweet is she having a little tea party! The papers are from the Contemporary Laura Ashley range and then I just added some card candy and a sentiment stamp from Cuddly Buddly.
Remember I told you last week that we had been having fun in the sun? Well, here are a few cute pictures which I took of Dylan...

Look at that sweet little face (can you tell he's just had a chocolate biscuit?? I swear he's more of a chocoholic than me, and I take some beating!!)

I just love the stupid expression on his face in this photo! We used his old baby bath to make him a little sand pit. He had his cars in there and was making car sandcastles!!
I'll be back tomorrow with my card for My Time to Craft, so see you then!
Thanks for looking as always!!

Love Becky xx

Fabulous cards Becky, really like the distressed look of the first one, your 2nd card with your new stamp is lovely with the flowers and the daisy may image is really sweet!
Love the piccies of Dylan, why is it that kids have to get their food all round their mouths/faces, you should see Hollie after she's had chocolate spread on toast lol!! Great idea for the old baby bath, he sure looks like he was having fun.
I will get round to using your fab S&S and MTTC sketches soon, hopefully before we go on holiday!
