Sketch time

Hi guys,well we are experiencing an indian summer here and the weather is just glorious so lets hope it continues.
Right over at Creative craft this week we have a sketch for you  its ages since i worked with a sketch and must say realy loved this one.

Now remeber you can,alter the sketch just as long as we can recognise it that is fine,as you can see I altered it slightly. We are sponsered this week by Robyn Fetish designs,and as you see i got to play with one of there gorgeous images.
DP's prima,feux stitching flourish die,card candy sentiment from Dawn bibby,colored with my pro markers.
So we wouild love to see you over at creative craft and see what you create with our sketch the link to the blog and all the other DT examples is HERE.  We also have some new DT members too,so welcome ladies to our little team,

Next I decided to play with some wage slips,you know the envelopes you can buy these cost me a pound,and you got about 20 so I decided to make another pocket book so here it is,
Here is the envelope I used 3 of these.

DP's Kanban,die's Tims,which Sue and Sherryn sent me,bless you guys,hand,and feather are cut from my cricut,Tims word tickets,chain, and aged mahogony distress inks.  The flower I painted then just moulded to give it more dimension.

Want to thank all of your that keep asking about Lisa she is okay well getting there she has been spending a lot of time with her friends who have helped her no end,bless her heart she is having to ring the wedding venue today to cancell that,which I told her I will do that for her,not fair she has to do it so that is what I am going to do when I finish writing this post.
I did make this digital collage yesterday too just for Lisa,
Just took several elements,blended them together then took some photos of Lisa and my dog Alice who has spent a lot of time,on Lisa's bed giving her cuddles bless her.
So that is it for today hope you like my makes.
Love and big hugs to you all,you are all stars thank you.

Gorgeous creations Cheryl, Love what you have created with the wage packet thingys, have some similar hiding somewhere in the back of a drawer, might just have to have a play. The flower is gorgeous, lovely colour and dimention. Your digital collage, great for relaxing the mind, have a similar picture of trees in my front room and just love loosing myself in it! And finally! Nothing better than a Westie to cuddle up to to feel loved! Have one too. Hopefully, better times to come for your daughter. Carolxx

Poor Lisa! It is great to hear that she is getting so much support! And bless your heart for keeping it together for her sake, and doing the "dirty work" for her.

You always pack so much into a post that it is hard to know what to comment on first and then I always forget something! I can remember getting my actual wages when we used to be paid in cash in those envelopes LOL! Love how you altered it. Love your digi spread too with your little dog, glad she is keeping your daughter company. That is a nice sketch - might have a go at that...
