Over the past few busy working weeks I have had snippets of time to create - here are 3 of the most recent additions to the craft desk here at Sandybeaches:) The first uses this weeks sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday(#107)...I had a request for a card for a 56th Wedding Anniversary Card on Thursday and so I popped straight over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday for inspiration! Stampin' Up! papers, ribbon, ink, sentiment & label punch; Lori Boyd digi images and Copics colouring and a whole lot of crafty relaxing time:)

The second card was inspired by the '1,2,3' theme over at Stamps R Us and the 'Summertime' theme over at Wags 'n Whiskers (#57)this week. The use of 1 image, 2 patterned papers and 3 embellishments for this special 12th birthday card. Using paper from the 'stash', Surfin' Edwin from Magnolia Stamps, Copics colouring and Cuttlebug numbers and a hippity happity birthday card for someone special!

The final card for sharing today is a special one I made for Kiddlywink 2...a slightly 'non-traditional' card for his First Holy Communion celebrations! The sketch over at Crazy 4 Challenges (#93) suits perfectly - as did the Lori Boyd image and Cuttlebug embossing:)

Hope your weekend is cruising along nicely in your part of this wonderful world:) x
