Can you believe.....

.....this is the first time I've ever stamped and coloured a Belles 'n Whistles stamp!!  I have a few of them but just haven't got around to playing with them yet  :o(  I've been meaning to for ages as they're soooooo pretty and such a good excuse to get all pink and girly!!  This weeks Sketch Saturday sketch just seemed the perfect opportunity to get inky, lol!!  Here's Cupcake...



Close up of Cupcake...



Inside of the card...



And a side view...



I turned the sketch (as it fitted the stamp better) and moved the three little tabs to the side!  Here's this week's Sketch Saturday sketch (and it's another cracker!)...



And we're sponsored this week by...



...our regular sponsor The Craft Barn who (I'm sure!) will be donating a super prize to our winner!

I'm planning on having a crafty day today, well I planned on having one of those yesterday too but ended up at the gym, then job hunting and then doing a code test for a job!!  Fingers crossed I pass and something comes of it (fingers, toes and pretty much everything that can be crossed!!).  It has been lovely being off work (except for the broken wrist bit!!) but I knew I wouldn't be able to stay off.....oh to be a WAG ay, lol!!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and I'll see you all soon...
Much love,

Beautiful card Cazza.Fabulous paper and colouring, and gorgeous image.I won an image from Bev Rochester a few weeks ago and too scared to colour her..lol...and then I thought, 'you ninny, you dont have to let anyone see it if you muck it up', so I must do it.
