Totally missed it...

Things got a little busy this past weekend and before I knew it, I had missed the deadline for the Freshly Made Sketches # 148  card challenge that I had intended to take part in.

This is the card that I made but never got to post on the challenge web-site.  I guess that it's just one of those things.



There are so many challenges out there on the internet that it is hard to keep track of them all. I've decided to keep a notebook of all the ones that I like. That way, should I miss a deadline or can't remember what web-site I saw it on (the more likely problem) I can refer to it and also use it for another time. I could of course just simply pin them to a board on Pinterest but sometimes it's just nice to have something in a book to refer to.

Here's details of all the products I used to make the card.


I have to admit that I thought that I liked the blank space on the centre square of the sketch, but when I had made the card there just seemed to be something missing. Because of this,  I decided to add some more of the stamped and punched flowers in that blank space. In case you hadn't quite noticed (probably my poor photography) the flowers are Hello Honey ink stamped onto Hello Honey card stock.

I used the markers to ink up the stamp for this card - it's much simpler to use these when you have multiple colours on one stamp but you don't want to add layers. I obviously did not ink up the pot part of the stamp sufficiently as it looks a little blotchy but I liked this effect and decided to go with it rather than re-ink and re-stamp.
