Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge

Good morning blogland, from a lovely sunny Wakefield. Not been around much these last few days so I apologise for not commenting on your lovely cards.

I've made a few cards over the last week but not got round to uploading.

You may remember that we won the blog candy from the lovely Peri a couple of weeks ago. One of the prizes was 2 images from Isabella's Sketchbook. I've made the following card using the Chocolate & Coffee image. These are not the kind of images I would usually use but I loved colouring it up. I wanted to keep the card clean and simple and I really enjoy doing these kinds of cards, it makes a difference from making fussy cards all the time.

I'm going to enter my first ever entry in to this weeks challenge over at Isabella's which is Take a Break - Open Challenge. So we can make any project using any image and any theme.


I'll be back in a mo with probably another 2 posts as I've got another challenge card and birthday cards which I made for Ann-marie.

ta ra for now
