Twisted Sketches #91 - Old



Evening Friends

Well it has been a bit quiet in my household of late when it comes to craftiness. With the kids home on school holidays there just hasn't been much time to sit, relax and create! I have managed but this week (school went back on Monday - YIPEE!!!!) to make several cards and finish off a layout as well.

But tonight I wanted to share with you all my card creation for this week's Twisted Sketches Card Challenge. This weeks twist was "Old". Now I can't blame you for looking and thinking "old" what's old about this card. Well I took the challenge quite literally and didn't use anything new... if it wasn't in my stash or it was recently purchased it was out of bounds.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog everyone and don't forget to head over to http://www.twistedsketches.org/2012/01/twisted-cards-91.html to see all the other lovely creations for my fellow, very talented, sisters.

Twisted Sketches #89 - Sparkle

Evening Everyone

Well I am running a little behind with the kids being home from school but I wanted to take 5 mins to catch up and post my very first Twisted Sketches card sketch challenge for 2012! This week's twist was so up my alley "SPARKLE". I so love sparkle in any shape or form. Thanks Anam for another great challenge! So please be sure to head over to the blog and check out all the card creations this week. Welcome to all the new Twisted Sisters, great to be working alongside you & welcome back to all the other Sisters from last year. I am so looking forward to working alongside to you all. So I won't keep you waiting a moment longer. Here is my submission for the week. This card went on to become a 50th Birthday Card for a member of the family. I added a "5" "0" in small black chippie numbers to it.

Twisted Sketches

Well after a chaotic Christmas & indeed so far a Happy New Year I am finally back! After what seems like an eternity (and what has indeed been a good couple of months) I finally sat down yesterday to scrapbook for the first time I think since perhaps my October Scrapbooking Retreat. I managed to get two layouts done, as well as adding the finishing touches to two more layouts. I got out three new albums to set up for my Bon Jovi concerts from 2010 and then one for when Caz & Julz came to visit around the same time and lastly for my whirlwind visit to Tassie in March 2012. So I am a very happy scrapper indeed.

But this post is to share with you all a link to the Twisted Sketches site so you can check out some favourites from myself and fellow Twisted Sketches Sisters from 2011. My work is on display here but please be sure to check out the other three associated posts from the lovely Anam so you don't miss out on the highlights from all the girls.

I will be back soon to update my blog with the two new layouts I got done yesterday. For now I am off to my scrapdesk to see what I can create today.

Happy Scrapping one & all and I hope 2012 brings you the best INSPIRATION ever!

Hugs
