A Gem Of A Challenge 26 ~ Sketch By Jackie...


 Hello all!....long time no blog!!
Really sorry I haven't blogged or visited your blogs this week. To be honest things are upside down here at the moment, as my teenage son has been unwell. He was in hospital for a couple of days, and then other medical appointments once home. So crafting and blogging have had to take a back burner. 
And it's my Birthday today too! Thirty-blinkin-five! God I feel old!!

So time for a new challenge over at A Gem Of A Challenge!
A sketch by our lovely Jackie......
For my DT card, I used 'Reindeer In Boxers' (hehe....fab isn't he?) from Pink Gem Designs, available as a digi download. If you are quick you may be lucky enough to grab him for free HERE. Janet sometimes has a freebie on her blog, and this is the current offering. He will then move over to the store available to purchase. The papers are also digital by Pink Gem Designs.

 I used Copics to colour him. 

Other ingredients;
Scalloped card blank,
Glitter flatback snowflakes,
Card candi,
Flowers,
Craftwork cards sentiment
(all above from Crafty Emma's Store),
Kraft card,
Ribbler,
White Acrylic paint,
Red & Stardust stickles,
Martha Stewart Punch,
X Cut snowflake punch,
Red card,
Sticky gems.


Please pop over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the talented DT have been up to, and to check out this weeks prize.

Many thanks for always been kind enough to visit me, and for leaving me lovely comments. Cheer me up they do! Back later with my CES DT card.
