Anything Goes - Sketch challenge

Hi Blogging Buddies

Here we are again with another challenge over at Anything Goes.  I can't believe how fast the weeks are flying...

This time we have a sketch by Val for our challenge...

I really enjoyed using this sketch - it gave me chance to use a doily that's been lurking in my stash for a little while.

Card Recipe:
  • Wild Rose Studio DP - Meadow Paper Pack
  • Doily from stash
  • Nestabilities circle
  • Crafts Too Heart Embossing folder
  • Image - Cherry Pip from Funky Kits
  • Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch
  • Gems and glitter from stash
  • Glossy Accents on Bag and Shoes
Don't forget to pop over to The Craft Den for lots of fab crafty goodies, and then to Anything Goes Challenge Blog for lots of fabulous inspiration from my lovely teamies!

Sorry that I've been a bad blogger over the last few days - we had a last minute get-away down to the Isle of Wight for a few days... and today I've been at the hospital having more investigations on my eyes.  After lots of tests and those awful pupil dilating drops in my eyes, they can find nothing nasty.... thank goodness!  It seems my jaw/neck problems have caused the nerves around my eyes to also be irritated....  Anyway, it's all a lot better now (touch wood!), and I hope it stays that way!  

I'm not going to try to catch up on what I've missed - I'd spend a couple of days doing that....  but I promise I'll be back to normal soon!!

Big Hugs

  9. Gorgeous card Christine. Those papers are so pretty and I love this sweet little image :o)

    Hope you enjoyed your break... we visited the Isle of Wight when I was probably only about 6 and I've always wanted to go back. It's a lot of travelling from Sheffield though, so I haven't managed to talk hubby round yet! Hugs, Lisa x

  10. Lovely card Christine, (even without any pink!)

  11. Love this card, the blues look fabulous and such a sweet image, coloured to perfection, great papers too.
    Glad to hear that the tests were all fine. I have just had a biopsy taken from my tongue, and they are not worried as I don't have to go back till around the 20th of November, I was told if they were worried I would have to go back the very next week.
    Nice to have a last minute get away, never been to the IofW myself but that is on my list to visit the small islands around the UK.
    Take care.
