There is such a choice of sketches available on the challenges this week that I was hard pressed to decide which ones to go for but I really wanted to use this little chap in his huge warm jumper so it just had to be this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge which has two sketches on offer - I opted for the second one but they are both gorgeous ....
And I kinda knew that if I was using a PB cat stamp, I had to have paw prints in there somewhere too.
I can't remember the name of the stamp as I came upstairs without checking (d'oh), but the papers are DCWV cardstock, Making Memories and Doodlebug "Calico Prints". The sentiment is also Penny Black. I've coloured the image with ProMarkers.
In view of his big chunky jumper, I thought I'd also offer him up for Crafty Calendar Challenge No 4 Keeping Warm
And today's second card, for two challenges, is also a sketch, this one for Totally Gorjuss Challenge 12 and I've used the challenge theme from Simon Says Hot Chocolate
This was a great sketch to use and the card just sort of fell into place! I have used Pink Gem Designs Dungaree Milly (thanks Janet, she's fabulous), Dovecraft masculine papers for that lovely warm rich, hot chocolately feel, and a piece of sticky ribbon. Milly is coloured with ProMarkers.
I'm really sorry that she's a little out of focus, by the time I'd finished I'd lost the best of the light today.
There are so many other challenges that I would like to do today but I'm not going to have the time this week. Sniff, sob.
Thanks for finding the time to hop over and see me.
