A couple of sketches

Sketch N Scrap are having an online crop on facebook 
and their first Challenge is to use a sketch:

Just by chance I bought a packet of doilys on Wednesday - so here is my card:

At the same time I bought those little heart dies - so I thought I would try them out!
All the papers are from my scraps but the image and sentiment are from
From The Heart - I coloured the piggy with pencils!
(I also added googly eyes!) 
Allsorts Challenge #402

Talking of From the Heart they also have a sketch challenge on the go:

Again I used a From the Heart Image and Sentiment - this time a freebie Bunny Love
The red filigree was taken from an intricate diecut and edged with black paper. 
I hand cut the hearts and drew stitching around the bunny. The sentiment is cut out with a stitched die as is the black mat it is sitting on.
I again used pencils to colour the image and added googly eyes.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Both cards are lovely, Susan. I like the soft colors on the first and the filigrane die cut border on the second. On both the googled eyes made me smile. Great accent !
