Sweet Friends Rosie meets Sketch Saturday and a combo

Good morning to you all
 Matt has a lovely day fishing yesterday and caught 6 fish but did not win his match, however it was only the first match of the season, so many more to go (and many more luxury quality crafting days for little old me, hehehehehehe ;o )

I finally finished Grace's birthday card, the inspiration for this one came from my one and only La La Land stamp which I won a little while ago, but the post delayed its arrival.  I love how these come packaged and although I initially struggled to colour her in, I am sure that with practice this will get better.  I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday and the colour combo from the Play Date Cafe.  

These are the challenges that I am entering this lovely spring coloured card into - which reminds me my purple crocus' are now fully up, as are the purple hyacinths, the little turquoise blue (not sure of name) flowers are out and the tulip buds are showing, wow spring has actually arrived in our garden, even Star has been out enjoying the rays.
La La Land - Challenge 31 - Make your own flower.  Finally I can enter this challenge with a La La Land stamp whoop whoop!!!!!

Sketch Saturday Week 96 -  Loved this layout


Totally Gorguss - Hearts

So after all of that here it is
 Papers again from the Heather Mono Papermania pack and cerise base paper from stash.  Loved this purple ribbon and thought it was really girly for Grace and just had to add all those pearls for such a pretty little girl.  The flower is made from die cuts in the cuttle bug.  Polly of Artfulwings, passed these over some time ago and this is the first time I have used them. I used my Just-rite stamp kit for the sentiment.

This is the lovely "Sweet Friends Rosie" La La Land stamp, just perfect for such a little girl and coloured with copics and a little fine glitter Atyou for her dress for that under stated sparkle.
 Well my 2nd coat of gesso should be dry on my commission, and I want to go play with another new house mouse stamp.

Enjoy your crafting time and thank you for all your lovely much appreciated comments recently.

Hugs Kate xx
