Papertake Weekly ,,,,,, Dawny’s Sketch Challenge ( and another new HM stamp !! )

Hi all :-) Hope you are all recovered from a weekend of choccy over indulgence ! Amy has just brought a big tin of Quality street to munch as I'm writing this ,,,, Sean forgot them and went back to Malta ,, well ,, we can't let them go off eh !!!

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge Dawny has made us a fab sketch to follow so check out the challenge blog for the layout

We are sponsored by our lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $20 spree on offer for one lucky entrant,,, Woo Hoo !! :-)

I have just treated myself to one or 2 ( cough) new House Mouse stamps and I just HAD to use this gorgeous Freshly Squeezed Jokester stamp that is THE House Mouse stamp of the month for April, and of course I also had to have the ‘Life hands you Lemons’ sentiment stamp that goes with it !! I coloured the image with Copics and decoupaged the lemon, I inked around the edges with Broken China distress ink. the papers are my current faves from the Crate Paper Neighbourhood pad. I used a Martha Stewart Mouse border punch, some Star Dust stickles, a bit of ribbon and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops. I kept the embellies to a minimum because nothing looked right !Smile

I decorated the inside ( a little bit) and printed the text on the comp :-)

Our GD’s Cathy and Debby and the DT have all made gorgeous creations for your inspiration so hop on over to the PTW to see them Smile
