Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 69 - Part 1

Today I thought I'd make the most of the peace and quiet while I could and get creative!  I don't know why but it just wasn't happening!!  How very irritating :)

I did manage to do a few cards though, including a couple from today's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  Now I don't know why but I found this one really tough, whereas the last with the last two inspiration hit me straight away... maybe that's the point it pushes you outside your comfort zone a bit, otherwise it wouldn't be called a challenge, it'd be called an easy!! :). 

I like the cards I did with this sketch, one of which is below, but I'm not entirely sure that the ribbon is right, so think I may tinker with it a bit more until I'm happy.  The original sketch looked like this...

Now I don't have a circle nestability die so after a few disastrous attempts using the Cricut to cut a circle big enough - I MUST remember to order a new cutting mat !!! - I gave in and used the label die that I do have.  I figured well, it's a sketch, its inspiration not an exact science... right???  That also excuses me doing a square card :)

Anyway, this is what I came up with

See what I mean about the ribbon???  hmmm...  Loving this image though, so here's a close up

She's great isn't she?  She's Checking Facebook by Mo Manning and was the freebie she did for a while - I love her slippers!!  If you've not seen Mo's work before have a look at her site, you'll be there ages as she has so many gorgeous images to download and most are only $3, roughly £2, and you get your image straight away, no waiting for Mr. Postie!!  I have my eye on a few to be purchased next payday :)

She's coloured using a whole host of Copics from my ever growing collection - C-3, C-5, E00, E04, E37, E47, E53, E57, G99, R20, V91, V95, YG95, W-1

I''ll share the second attempt tomorrow :)

Thanks for stopping by
