Sketch and Stash, The Creative Cottage and Pollycraft Catch Up!!

Hi Everyone... I'm sorry for the late post this fortnight for Sketch and Stash... here is the sketch we would love you to follow this fortnight (created by Jill!)...

And for the challenge this time we are sponsored by The Creative Cottage with their new 'Come Rain or Shine' kit...

I decided to use the kit to make my card for Sketch and Stash this fortnight, it's a card for my mum who's having a hard time at the moment...

And here is the inside again using the kit, I love the rainbow and clouds paper...

And here are a few more cards which I made with the kit last week which I am more happy with... the little bear is called Sherbet and will feature in a lot of the Creative Cottage kits from now on...

And you've got to love these funky wellies... especially on a wet day like today! The kit is available now from The Creative Cottage... they also have a Christmas kit available for just £1 (and a freebie image) so well worth a look...

(Talking of Sherbet the bear in future kits... I just found this beauty in my Email Inbox and it's on sale now here... can't wait to play!!)

And finally here is my project for the Pollycraft Challenge which is to make anything but a card so I decided to make a Calendar...

Most of the calendar was made on the computer using frames and a funky font, The only real crafty bit was colouring in the images and bits of the letters and frame (oh and sticking the calendar on lol!) It's a great calendar in real life but I just couldn't get my camera to take a decent photo of it, time for a new one me thinks!!

I'm sorry for the lack of posts and commenting at the moment, like I said earlier, my mum is going through a really rough time at the moment and it's affected me in a big way so I'm just taking some time out right now... I hope you'll all bear with me and I'll try to be back soon!

Love Becky xx
