shocking mother!

what a shocking mother I am..............not only did Lily get to watch her new Tinkerbell DVD while I crafted but she also got to watch another DVD!! How bad am I? I did have fun crafting though while she was busy getting square eyes.

I have made three cards and they cover a few challenges :)
First is for the 2 sketches 4 You challenge, Kazan's sketch #13. I wasn't sure what to use for the flourish on this sketch but I found the stitched square when I was looking for something for another card. No idea where the pattern for the stitching came from it has been in the stitching file for ages.

This card is for Lili of the Valley and Secret Crafter, both challenge blogs are new to me this week. It is a sketch at Lili of the Valley and "Cute as a button" theme at Secret Crafter. I had to flip the sketch a wee bit as I made the daft mistake of not checking which way the paper was before I drew and cut the shapes lol (dohhh)


Final card is for Sketch Saturday, the tree and sentiment were cut from an old Xmas card and layered onto grey cardstock, plus some vellum and glittery card that were in the scraps box.
LOL what a productive afternoon :) I am planning on another parchy night tonight if there's nothing decent on the gogglebox, my new parchment raft mag arrived yesterday and there's a pattern I fancy trying.............Xmas of course what else lol
