Crafty Catz Challenge blog- Anything Goes with the optional twist of using the Sketch

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your week been? I have been rather busy which I must admit I rather like. I have been invigilating, I helped at a Felting workshop and I have been out to lunch. This evening our daughter and son-in-law are coming to supper it will be lovely to see them and share a meal. All of this has made it rather hard for me to keep up with my crafting and blogging. Our weekend will be full of gardening.  Our garden has been somewhat neglected for several years so it is taking a while to get it back into order.

Being Friday the new challenge starts today on the Crafty Catz Challenge blog the theme is Anything Goes but we have the optional twist of using the Sketch provided by Niki one of our very talented designers. The sponsor is Digi Doodle Studios. The design team had wonderful images to work with.

All the papers lace and ribbon I used came from my stash lots of it left over from the wedding last year. 

Our sponsor this month is Digi Doodle Studios if you click on the logo you will be taken to the store. 

Here is the sketch. I rather enjoyed using it. 

This image is called Jade and Skye Digi Doodles Sheep Dog Digi Stamp and is available HERE. I printed the image onto Neenah Card Stock and I coloured with Promarkers. Then I used the ScanNcut to cut out the image. 

I had been using the Cape Daisy dies from Creative Expressions and the Star Flower leaves from John Next Door to make flowers for other cards. They seemed to go well with this design. 

This is my go to Happy Birthday die from Crafter's Companion. 

Have a great weekend. Of course there is the Royal Wedding and the FA cup final all to enjoy. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting
