Sarah Kay

One of my favourites, Sarah Kay....
I really enjoyed making this card and colouring this 'cos it has brought me childhood memories.
No no .. not what you are thinking,,, no kissing boys under a bonnet :) It's just that when I was a child I used to really love Sarah Kay. I still have a Sarah Kay 1983 Calendar intact and there were also these Sarah Kay stickers which you would buy and stick in a FIGURINI PANINI album. I had collected all of the stickers and I still have this finished sticker album and now today, to colour this image I brought out this album to look at to help me colour in this image. I'm really pleased with the result. These Promarkers are just fantastic, I really love using them.

Here is the card.

I made it for a friend of ours who is getting engaged. The dotted backing papers are from the Daisy & Dandelion Paper Pack and the striped ones are from another DoCrafts pack. Lucky me that we got someone selling some craft goodies here, finally!

The sketch which I used here below is from I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge No 7, and the twist this week was to use spots/dots in our project.

I'm also entering this card into Crafty Calendar Challenge No 6 as this time it's FLOWER POWER. They would like to see flowers somewhere into our card or project and an optional extra was to use pastel colours....

And also into Fun With Shapes and More Challenge No 47, as this time the Challenge is to use FAUX STITCHING.

Thanks for looking, and don't forget to have a look at my friend's video for the EUROSONG CONTEST being held next May in Norway... only if you have time of course ;)

Hope you enjoyed your visit.


... Me again!!!
I decided to make the card more personal, and added the names and just had to add some hearts at the top!

Beautiful - I've just won this same stamp so can't wait for it to arrive. I too had the Sarah Kay sticker album (was aged about 9 or 10 at the time), and it's up in the loft... Like you I may be getting down for inspiration!
