The sketch file- october sketch.

Hello peeps!!

Its a quicky card and a quicky post from me this afternoon!!! I have totally got hump day feeling and am mostly vegging out on the settee with a crafty mag but I just had to have a super quick play at kathy's new sketch over on the sketch file and enter the Truly scrumptious challenge blogs Distressing challenge.

I was feeling experimental decided to go all out distressing with no colouring (...boy that was hard because I just wanted to colour those super cute little ragamuffin girls soooo bad!!) and screwed up my book pages and then distress inked them, punched out some scalloped circles from the pages too and inked them and made them into a yummy little corner flower. I very messily stamped my magnolia swirl around the card base (...yup, my little bloggy watermark is attempting to hide the bit where I was a bit too messy....)
and I scrumpled my ribbon on too. So in a nutshell I am as messy as my desk in my crafting today!! romfl!!!

Now if you fancy joining in with this gorgeous sketch challenge below I can magically ping you there with the click of a piccy...yep, the piccy below....
:) did ya'll ping yourselves there yet?!!!! I know Kathy and her teamies will be very pleased to see you if you do.

So messy me is off to get messy in the kitchen now and make some pasta bolognase  for tea tonight!!
