Pumpkin girl

Good morning everyone. 

This is my DT card for Friday Sketch Challenge, this challenge we are being sponsored by:

Here's a little information about her:
"Hi, my name is Gerda Steiner.
First of all I'm a mom of 3 little boys (5,3 and 1),that make me oh so happy, humble and grateful. But at night, I turn into a doodler and illustrator and I love to create characters, that make people smile or even giggle. I'm originally from Germany and moved with my american husband (who I met 10 years ago in Germany) to California.
My first illustrations were published as greeting cards for and zazzle and at some point I got questions about providing certain designs as digital stamps. And there we are! Creating Designs as digital stamps is just such a blessing, because the feedback is amazing. I always love to see your projects, and read your ideas and stories. You can also find a progressive challenge on my site."
Gerda is offering 3 digi stamps to the lucky winner!!
Our sketch this fortnight is by Gea
and this is my card

For the card I used the following:

Papers from magazine
Orange and black card from stash
Sentiment from kit

Cupcakes for Jane

I decided the other day that as I cannot find anything anymore that I must sort out all my craft items, I have them squeezed in this cupboard and that cupboard throughout the house and this resulted in spending more time looking for things rather than actually making anything. Unfortunately I don't  have a place to have them altogether.  Once I started I found I couldn't remember even seeing some of the items and others I had completely forgotten about.  Well I am on my way with sorting out and found lots of bits for my Grandson's Mother and Toddler group for them to use (in our case it is Nanny and Toddler Group - in fact I think a third of the group are also Nanny's).

Friday Sketch Challenge have a new challenge which started on Friday and this is my DT card for them.  I thought I had posted it on my blog and only just saw this morning that I hadn't.  The stamp set came from a magazine sometime ago and I have used it quite a few times, it is a lovely set designed by Beth Gunnell.

Recipe for my card is as follows:
Images from Beth Gunnell
Papers and card from stash
Cheery Lynn lace die
Spellbinder circle die
X cuts square die

 Have a great weekend.
