Sketch n Stash.....

This is the first of two posts today, at least I have managed to catch up with all my DT cards for now, have been quite busy getting some samples done for Kraftyhands ready for the launch of their new Cd on Friday, will be show casing these for the rest of the week. Had to go for more blood tests this week which I hate as looking for my veins are like looking for a needle in a hay stack. I do envy people who have veins, every time I go they slap my arms and tut and then usually call someone else in to have a go. Still waiting for my hospital appointment from Cardiology, just hope I will still able to fly to America in June cos I will be so miffed if I can't go.

My first card is for the new challenge at Sketch n Stash, this fortnight we have two great sponsors




I used the stamp CI 378 A Royal Bird, I embossed the image in Wow fine gold and then just the bird again and layered up, I used Pan Pastels to colour in the image using a very small brush. The patterned paper is from CI and the background paper and ribbon are from Live and Love Crafts




Back later with another card

Stunning card Daniele, I love the gold embossed images, beautiful papers and gorgeous colours.
You have my sympathies with the blood test, I am just the same. Just recently they have used a tiny needle used for babies and that seems better but it takes ages for the blood to come out! I hope you don't have to wait too long for your results and follow up appointments.
Hugs Sue xx

Gorgeous card Daniele - love the gold embossing and fabulous ribbon detail.
I too sympathise with regards to having blood taken - they always seem to have difficulties with my arm too and usually end up trying to take it from my wrist which can be quite painful :o(
Hope you get the results soon and hope all ok.
Take care

It looks so lovely embossed in gold, makes it so regal.
I also appreciate. I have no fear of needles (thankfully) but they always struggle to find a suitable vein when taking blood or when requiring an injection into a vein.
Good Luck with your results.
Wishes
Lynne
