PBSC Christmas in July


Here is my entry, for this weeks challenge, the image is really large & I'm always at a loss what to add as I don't like to add too much as she has so much detail so have kept it simple
Recipe:

PB Happy little shopper
Basic Grey & MME DP
Snowflake brad
Small peel off sentiment ( I don't use these much but the words were appropriate)
Green card

I hope you had a nice July, we actually had a christmas on the 25th,with my nephew & his wife.
Usually we spend christmas with them, so we had a summer one outside in the sunshine.

I hope this is ok for the challenge

PBSC week 109 Sketch


My entry for this weeks challenge I have used promarkers for the first time on my PB I haven't had much success before, they always looked a bit freaky, maybe because this is a larger hedgie it's worked out not too bad, I have also used glossy accents, which is a bit hit or miss as I usually crack it or have bubbles, so better not look too close LOL.

Recipe
PB Bountiful
MME free papers
Prima flowers
Ribbon & gems from box.

Many thanks for taking the time to visit my blog & for any comments which are so much appreciated,
Take care

Red White & Blue


this is for two challenges Sketch Saturday h& PBSC the theme is red white & blue to celebrate 4th July.
I'm not too sure about this one, couldn't quite get the balance right, either too much blue or too much white & should I have put gems in the flower centres?
I was getting a bit frustrated with it & have had a mental day between hospital appointments & son's allotments ( he has a sprained ankle so isn't getting about too well) so ended up just sticking it together & hope for the best.
Anyhow, back to the card

I have used PB Clowning Around coloured with promarkers
Oddments of paper & card
Cuttlebug stars
Daisy embossing folder
Ribbon & gems

Many thanks for any comments which are always a delight & thank you for taking the time to visit.
