Friday sketchers upside down card!

Apologies for the lack of posting recently. So much has happened that I've been planning to fill you in on, but I was struck down by an evil flu like lurgy on Monday and I've been pretty much unable to move since. Hubby has been taking time off work to look after me and packing the little mister off to the MIL as he couldn't cope with us both - Such a man! LOL!

So I had a go at this week's Friday Sketchers. I've never been one for following sketches as I really struggle to put paper together. They have a tendancy to look too busy. But, my inspiration is running dry and my cards have been stuck in a rut, so I've followed a couple of sketches this week, so let me know what you think. I do believe I may have found the way forward.

I've made this card with the stunning Belles n Whistles Lil Miss Poppy Stamp. I think she's absolutely gorgeous. I've coloured her with copics and chalked up the edges. I've used the stunning GCD Studios Ella Blue stack for my DP. Sentiment and card candy are both from Craftwork cards.

I'm also going to enter this card into the Belles n Whistles challenge this month which is distressing. Chalking is about as good as I get with distressing, but you never know...

When it came to standing my masterpiece up to admire it, I discovered that I'd mounted it upside down. Oooops! First time in 20 years, it was bound to happen sooner or later!

I have some more cards to post today, so check back later :O)


  1. Hi there! This card is great! Thanks for entering the BnW challenge this week!

  2. I wondered where you'd gone! Wednesday came and went and no Nic!
    Beautiful card, I do love these papers, I've not been brave enough to cut into mine yet.
    Can't believe you made it upside down, send it to someone in Australia.
    Hope you are feeling better today.
    Love Elaine xx

  5. Hi Nic,
    You are funny about place the image right side down. I've done that many times. LOL but the look on your final card is beautiful too.
