Back again with another quick post, this time it's my entry for the Sketch Saturday Challenge and again Jen Nelson at The Tiny Blue Butterfly provides the sketches so in honour of her birthday the challenge this week is to use a favourite sketch.

This is one I used recently for a Grandad/Father's Day card and although it's quite simple I loved the card I made last time...not too sure on this one however but it's a couple of cakes for Jen.

Oh and I mustn't forget the ladies over at Pixie's Crafty Snippet Playground as I'm going to pop this card over there too.  I've certainly used snippets and I'm thrilled to have won Pixie's challenge last week. The prize is some Memory Box cutting dies of cakes and stands so I can't wait to have a play with those.  Thank you ladies.

Well that's all for me today as I'm going to check out your blogs.  Enjoy your evening xx

Oh PS. Mr Dazzle has been playing about with the photos today and decided a black background looked the business so any feedback would be much appreciated.

  1. Hi Sarah! What a great card, lovely bright and perfectly co-ordinated papers to go with those super cupcakes. Lucky you having a Crafty American Auntie as well!

    I ran out and posted your dies yesterday, 1st Class so they ought to be collected from the post box today and might even reach you by tomorrow :)

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. Lovely card Sarah, I think the black bg really makes your card pop :) Cathy x

  3. Fantastic snippets card, Sarah!! I can tell you that the card photo is sharply focused on my monitor, which is the first goal and I do like the black background as it, too, helps to bring the eye directly to all the yummy card details and fab papers!!
