Friday Sketchers # 51 - Celebrating an Anniversary!
























Hiya folks!

Firstly I'd just like to apologise for not getting around to visiting most of you this week! I don't know where the time has gone really, but I suppose I have been quite busy doing stuff with the kids after school which is when I often sit down for a blog hop. Not complaining too much about that though as I often feel bad about the amount of time I spend on the PC when I could be with the kids, so it was quite a refreshing change. I promise to catch up with you all in the next day or two though and sort myself out.

This card is one I made over the weekend for the Friday Sketcher's Challenge, but I haven't been able to show you until now because it's also for my blogging buddy and teamie Tab, who celebrates her 30th birthday today. Have a great day lovely!! You still have time to enter this week's FS and, as well as the usual prizes, each DT member is offering candy to some of the lucky entrants as well. How fab is that?! It's all to celebrate the anniversary of the FS challenge, which is as popular now as when it started. Way to go girls!!!!

I've used one of my new Annie stamps from Charmed Cards, isn't she gorgeous?! These new stamps are excellent quality, great value and stamp beautifully - well worth a purchase if you feel like treating yourself...... and let's face it who doesn't, lol!
Ooooh, whilst I think on, Charmed Cards are having a mega party next week with oodles of prizes. Check out the info on my sidebar, definitely worth a visit!!

Materials:
Image - Charmed Cards and Crafts
Sentiment - Studio G
Papers - Basic Grey Porcelain
Colouring - Copics
Die - Sizzix Bigz Swirls
Punch - EK Success Medium and Small Retro Flower
Embellishments - Clear Dew Drops from stash

Really must dash....... I'm at work again, hee hee!
