Hobby Farm and BG#29

At the Hobby Farm blog you will find new sketches for the April challenge. Evelien asked me to design a card sketch. Here's my work on both sketches.

If you like challenges please feel free to join this one and create something nice based on one (or both) of the sketches. Please take a look and see what the other girls did. Karen Taylor is the Guest Designer for this month.



Materials I used for this layout and card:
Patterned papers - Basic Grey "Gypsy".
Buttons, brads, letterstickers - Basic Grey "Sultry".
Cardstock - ColorCore.
Thickers - American Crafts.
Flowers, ribbon - Prima.
Other - chalk, fineliner, staples, Dymo, waxcord and bling.

Basic Grey Challenges has a nice one up this week. Create a Spring/Easter themed project. I did a lot of layouts the last couple of weeks so cards are fun to do for a change. And with a lot of birthdays and anniversary's ahead it's good to have some on hand. For this card I used the beautiful Porcelain papers.

Thanks for visiting my blog and Happy Easter to you all.

zo ben weer een beetje bijgelezen hier. Nu zit Max op schoot (was iets te vroeg wakker eigenlijk) Een heel verhaal zal ik hier dus niet achterlaten...
Jammer dat Page plans gaat stoppen. Hopelijk vind je ergens anders weer genoeg uitdagingen om door te gaan!
Deze schetsen zijn weer helemaal gaaf uitgewerkt!
