Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge | April 2016

Stampin' Up! Sketch Challenge

Hello! Long time to see! I have really missed this hop over the past couple of weeks, I can’t wait to hop around and see what the girls have created with this weeks sketch from Karen

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge April 2016

I was totally intimidated by this sketch. I have no idea why, but the whole thing really scared me. I stared at this sketch for over a fortnight before I had any inspiration what so ever, to the point where when Sam Johnson messaged me earlier in the week to remind me that the hop was this weekend, I had such a panic!

Once I had re-composed myself I started to look around my craft room. My shelves are currently looking kinda bare after I’ve removed all the stamp sets and embellishments that are retiring at the end of May. I don’t tend to share retiring products, I would hate for you to spot something I posted this week on my blog and go to shop only to find that it has already gone and you missed out. But please do use the link at the bottom of this post to check out the things that are retiring.

I almost used new products, but then felt bad that you wouldn’t be able to shop for them until 1st June – and that still feels like a very long way away!

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge Thank Card using Go Wild Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! UK

I also apologise for this photograph, I took my camera away with me last weekend, and I think the travelling has upset it because I cannot get a clear crisp image for love nor money! Looks like its time for a new camera!

Anyway, this card uses the Suite Sayings stamp set (staying with us for another 12 months) as well as some Designer Series Paper that is retiring – Go Wild! oh, and that ribbon is on the goodbye list too (I’m not good at not using retiring products am I!)

  1. I love this card, Hannah. I’m so sorry to have caused you such a panic with this month’s sketch! I’m so glad you managed to compose yourself and create that lovely card! xx
