Sketch Saturday ~ Sketch #41 & Colour Create #6

Ria created the sketch this week at Sketch Saturday and it is sponsored by Funky Fairys Papercrafts.

and Colour Create's challenge is Orange, Yellow and Green ...

Again i raided my trusty scraps folder for the DP's and CS. Image ~ RAK Jill, thanks honey! coloured with WM's. Buttons and Raffia ~ stash. Stitching ~ sewing machine.

More scraps were used to decorate the inside of the card along with a Studio G duck stamp, which is supposed to say "Happy Easter" but which i adapted to say "Happy Birthday". I've left the sentiment off the front at the moment cos the printer isn't hooked up to my lappy, and our desktop PC which the printer is hooked up to and, which i can normally connect too to send things to the printer is poorly! DH is busy trying to make it better. The sentiment will say something like "Happy Ducking Birthday" Loved the colour combo this week, it has to be one of my favs ... just love orange and green at the minute, not too keen on yellow, but it worked quite well me thinks!

Edited: I'm also gonna enter this card into the High Hopes Challenge #21. which is "zigs and zags". Obviously, my zig zags have been done using the sewing machine. There is also a prize up for grabs and this week's random winner will receive Busy Mama and the Grey Hares sentiment! This is my first entry for High Hopes, simply cos i dont have any of their stamps, fortunately though i have a stamped image and if it hadn't been for Beth i would be none the wiser lol! Thanks honey.


  1. Fabulous card Jilli. What an adorable little ducky. Your potential sentiment made me giggle - I hope the PC gets better soon. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.
