Hi there,

Where has this week gone? I really can't believe it's Thursday already.

That means it's time for a new DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH.....

Here's my card.....

I've used sweet little Marci, a Lalaland digital stamp, and also used Lalaland dies to cut the fence and grass.

This week's awesome sketch is courtesy of my fellow teamie Donna.

You may have to look a little to notice that I really did follow Donna's sketch. You just need to imagine that cute little Marci is in fact a scalloped semi-circle. LOL!

Please visit all the lovely DT blogs and leave them some love.....

And then pop on over to THE DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH BLOG to link up your entry. There is no time limit to play this week.

Thanks for stopping by,

DS 110 ~~ SMILE ~~

It's Deconstructed Sketch time again.

As soon as I saw Jen's sketch for this week I knew what I was going to do..........

I printed out tiny little LaLaLand digi stamps, which were super-fiddly and time-consuming to colour. I'm not complaining though as I LOVE to colour!

I then placed them behind the pink MFT die cut, that I have been wanting to use for a long time.

Here's Jen's sketch for this week.........

Don't forget to check out all the DT blogs and leave them a little love.....

We would love you to join in this week.

Head on over to THE DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH  to link up your creation.

Thanks for stopping by.

I have a quick and easy card to share this week for DS109.

The cute onesie die is from The Greeting Farm.

Jen's sketch is awesome as usual.

I'm so sorry for my short post this week. My beautiful sister in law, Lisa,  passed away very unexpectedly this week and we are all devastated. Hubby has travelled to Canada, where she lived with her Canadian husband and their 7 year old little girl. I've stayed at home with the 5 kiddos and I really don't have the mental or physical power to be very creative.

Anyhow, please check out the DT creations if you have time. The links are in my sidebar. And don't forget to join in and link up to Jen's blog.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi there all. 

My kiddies are on midyear school holidays at the moment and it is lovely to have them all home.

Number one daughter is enjoying every minute of her Boston trip and leaves for New York today where she will get to celebrate Independence Day.

This week's sketch was designed by the lovely Joni.

Here is my card.......

The image is a Saturated Canary digital image, and the papers are October Afternoon. I even had a play with a new (to me anyway) product called frontage, thanks to the lovely Alyce Keegan for the inspiration.  My nephew turns ten tomorrow and is somewhat obsessed with all things Star Wars so I hope he likes his card!

Here is Joni's awesome sketch. I think I followed it exactly this week. Thanks Joni.

You can find all of the DT samples on their blogs below.....

We would love you to join in the fun too. If you do, you can link up your creation HERE

Thanks for stopping by.
