Sketch Challenge




I have been enjoying the Easter break from school and as the weather has been glorious I have not founds time to do any creating.  Today I decided to spend a couple of hours in my craft room and make a card for the new Hero Arts Sketch challenge. I have followed sketch 2 and used my new Poppy stamp. I also dusted off the Envelope Background and stamped the red card and the edge of the label.



On Tuesday I went with Francesca for a visit to London, I have been lucky enough to win a competition and the prize is some jewelry designed by Alex Monroe, we went for the consultation and after treated ourselves to coffee on the 32 floor of the shard.







This is a selfie taken in the cocktail bar of the shard, ( it was very plush inside!!)


 And this is the view from our table, I am not very good at heights but managed this ,I don't think I could venture to the viewing point on the 64 floor!!

It looks like the weather is on the turn here, just in time for the Easter weekend, such a shame as we have lots planned, its my sons and husbands birthday on Saturday..

Hope you have a great holiday weekend.
