INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 31 - Its nearly christmas.....

Hello everyone
Welcome to our last blog hop for 2015 and a big thank you for joining us
each fortnight!
You may have hopped across from Narelle or come straight here.
Make a cuppa, sit down and put your feet up and relax and enjoy our 31st blog hop.
Just a quick peak at my baby ducks that our mother chook is raising beautifully - she does get a bit cranky when they go swiming! We have seven and two are black.

Now back to the hop...

A special thanks goes to our friend -Teneale for bringing it all together each fortnight.

Here is the sketch we have this hop
When I first looked at this I thought love it but then couldn't decide what stampset to use....
I WAS going to make a chrissie card..had it in my mind all week
But then I needed a card for a friend so went with the lovely
Blended Bloom stamp which I embossed in Black  on watercolour paper.
I then coloured using a Blender pen and Melon Mambo marker. Daffodil Delight marker in the middle with some rhinestones.
Cut the English Garden DSP using the Banner Framelit and the little framelit for the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.
I attached a Tea Lace paper Doily to the main card.
Then popped up the banner using dimensionals on top after attaching the linen thread.
I then cut out my flower carefully and attached to the banner
Here is my card - hope you enjoy it.

Now it is onto Kabrina to see what she has created - can't wait.

We will return in January 2016
after a short xmas and new year break.

Below is what I have used to make my card.
