Fri Sketchers: celebrate

Late I know, but this week has just flown by again. I did finish it earlier this evening but haven't had a chance to post it till now. Will try to be earlier next week (my days should be back to normal as my Sis flies home tomorrow).

Here's the sketch

and here's my take on it:


  • Image: Precious Moments stamp by Stampendous - don't know name but it's an old one from ebay as they are no longer available
  • Colouring: Promarkers. If you like the idea of Copics but find them too expensive then I recommend trying these as they are cheaper and I love the results you get - looks like it was printed IYKWIM (see close up below)
  • Paper: BG 'Euphoria' & blue cardstock from stash
  • Others: cuttlebug embossing folder, fiskars 'threading water' border punch, SU word window punch

My Wii arrived with the Wii fit and have had a go - love it! Watching my sister trying to be goalie had me crying with laughter which probably burnt up just as much calories as she did. Worth every penny :) Got that silly step music in my head now though! I knew I'd put weight on just didn't realise how much - need to lose a stone to reach target BMI of 22 (I'm borderline on overweight at the moment as my BMI is just under 25 :( )

Have a good Friday.

wow Fran, what an amazing card and what a find that stamp was, it's gorgeous and so many little pieces on it you could use with other images too! I am still wavering over the ProMarkers as I do love my pencils and wonder if I'd be any good with them. annie x
