MAWTT - Sketch

Hello... I hope you are all well today... it's Thursday and the turn of Team B over at 

and our lovely boss Hazel is hosting this challenge and she has given us a wonderful...


You can rotate the sketch.. but we must be able to see that you've followed the layout.
Closing Date is the 8pm BST 13th August on this Challenge... so you have plenty of time to enter!

I loved this sketch and so designed two cards using E-Vint images and Raspberry Road Papers and Elements... once I'd planned them out, then it was just a case of printing everything out and layering up onto Kraft Card Blanks.. so quick and easy but I love how they came out :-)

Paper: Raspberry Road - Christmas Remembered Paper 1 Set

I hope you can hop on over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's gorgeous creations this week... lots of inspiration for you!!

I want to say a Big Thank You to Cheryl... I was lucky enough to win one of her gorgeous creations.... this beautiful book....

Thanks hun! I really love it... the textures and details are awesome! :-))

I hope you are all enjoying the Summer!!
Personally I am glad it's gone a bit cooler as I've not felt good in the heat, but I know most of you love it hot!! I've been a grumpy so and so in it... and seriously thinking about moving to somewhere colder... maybe Lapland !!! wonder if Santa could put me up for a couple of months? I would pay my way.... could work as an Elf in his workshop! ;-))
Looking forward to next week as The Great British Bake Off and Who Do You Think You Are are both back! Yay!!  :-))
Thanks for all your lovely comments... I will catch up with you soon!
Take Care
Love and hugs

Hi Sue, both cards are real stunner's love the vintage images , the raspberry road papers complement them beautifully you've combined everything beautifully. Glad it's a bit cooler too, the heat is so tiring, it can't have helped your asthma and breathing problems, think Lapland is a bit too cold, LOL. Hope you and mum are both well, looking forward to Who Do You Think You Are,
my tree has been stuck for a while gran born in S. Africa mother brought her to Scotland when her husband died then mother returned to S. Africa and later remarried. No records appear to exist of my gran,would love to find out more about her father who was from Wales.

Take care hugs Meg.
