Sketch Saturday...Last of the First Birthday cards (for now!)

Saturday 8 September 2012

Morning All

Saturday = fabulous sketch by Sketch Saturday. I LOVE Sketch Saturday's sketches. They are my favouritest card sketches to work from ever. Fact.

This week is no exception:

And here is my DT card. This one was for little Noah and I really wanted a teddy for him so the Stamp Fairy to the rescue with this fab Lenny. He is so cute!

I coloured him with my copics...

and made a sentiment on my PC...

Job done.  There are no more first birthdays coming up so it will now be next year before the next lot (of second birthday cards then though!). Having said that my hubby did mention something about going to his colleagues baby's first birthday party which will probably mean another card...OMG!!)

This week's Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp so make sure you join in the fun and be in with a chance of winning their fabby prize. xx

I'm going to enter this card into a few challenges this week: Card Making Mamas which is 'hearts',  Delicious Doodles which is 'celebrations', Inspire Me Fridays which is 'Anything goes', Stampin with the Dragon which is 'baby' (ok I know it's not for a new baby but a 1 year old is definitely still a baby!), Charisma Cards which is 'seeing double' (double scallops either side, two sentiments and two stamped borders top and bottom of the image), Do you Stack Up which is 'birthdays', Forever Friends which is 'ribbon, and finally Papercrafting Journey which is 'anything goes'

Oh and camera verdict? £330 to fix. D'oh!
