Penny Black Saturday #111 & Sweet Stop Sketch #66!

Afternoon all! Sorry again for the late posting, it was the surprise party last night for my in laws anniversary and it went brilliantly! So many people said I should do party catering as a sideline!! And all the food went which was great! I'll pop some pictures up in the week as I'm on holiday from Monday so it'll get pretty quiet around here.
Onto my Double DT Saturday! Firstly for this weeks Sweet Stop Sketches challenge, another great sketch, and versatile too, I've turned mine into a square card to show off more of this gorgeous paper. I'm also going to send this to Michelle for the Spoonful of Sugar challenge for their 'Kickin' it for Michelle Card Drive'. You can read all about it on her blog, it's such a sad thing to happen but she's so positive! So this card is for her, and I'm glad because I'm really pleased how it turned out!

Colouring - Copics
Papers - Pink Petticoat gingham & flowery paper is 'Floral Delights' by Bearly Mine
Lace, pearls & ribbon from stash

Secondly is my card for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge which is 'Christmas in July'! It seems so far away but I'm sure will be here before we know it! There are 3 great prizes up for grabs too! I've used this weeks Simon Says Stamp sketch. I have to say I'm not really happy with this card, I thought to gold might look like champagne bubbles but it's such a b***er to photograph, it always looks naff! Also, I've forgotten to add any text! But at least it's another for the pile!
Thanks for looking, I hope you can join us! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
