Sketch #151 TSOT

Happy New Year everyone!

I am back recharged & ready to go.  I've been on a forced "holiday" from crafting since the beginning of November last year.  Starting with Emsy's school play, then a week away & finally three weeks of visitors (Hi Mum & Jules).  Today was the first time I even ventured into my favorite scrapping shop to pick up some much needed supplies & maybe one or two treats (tee hee) ;p.

I am so lucky to be able to rejoin the DT for Try Stampin' on Tuesdays.  I have to say this is one of my favorite sites, for great challenges. I especially love the "extras" for each sketch.  Which is a fairly new idea, but a really great one I think.  So here is this week's sketch & the twist - Love plaid.
   


I used an image from the Greeting Farm that I had coloured with Copics last year.  I used Die-namics Pierced Rectangle Stax & then coloured the background with Distress Inks.  For the plaids I used Washi tape on white c/s & then a banner die from Spellbinders.  The love part is the sentiment.  

Doug's mum Eileen fell & broke her arm just after the New Year.  At first the doctors thought she'd broken her elbow, but it turns out the break is above the elbow.  She had surgery a few days ago after being transferred from one hospital to another.  So this card will be finding it's way to her very soon. 

 I hope that I have inspired you to check out Try Stampin' on Tuesdays & to see what my fellow DT members have come up with.
