Sketch #25 at the JCBC blog

Goodmorning everyone,
I hope you all had a great weekend.We had a nice quiet Sunday at home doing basicly nothing.
I did my DT-cards for this weeks challenges at the JCBC and DDCC and made a to-do-list for this week.
And wow, do I have a lot to do this week.
Shopping with my mum, schedule my post for the Squigglefly bloghop which starts Wednesday (so make sure you check in this Wednesday), buying birthday presents for hubby and Britt, make invitations and candybaggs for Britt's birthday party next week, getting everything ready for a SOL (scrap online) this Thursday evening at Paper Craft Planet (7.30 London time at the Every Challenge You Can Think Of Group) etc.
No time to waste!!
The first thing on my to-do-list is done... my card for this weeks challenge at the JCBC challenge blog. Simone made a very tricky sketch for us to follow. Lots of layers to work with. For me a real challenge. I love cards with a lot of layers but making them is not my kind of thing. The first 2 attempts ended up in the bin and the 3rd card finally looked like the sketch Simone made.
I'm really looking forward in seeing all the cards everybody's going to create.
for this card I used the beautifull papers from My Mind's Eye -Bloom and Grow-, The gorgeous Whiff of joy stamp is coloured with Distress Ink and the flowers and gems are from my stash.

Well I'm of to get some more things done of my to-do-list.
See you all this Wednesday when the Squigglwfly bloghop starts.
xoxo Karin
