Six challenges including some new ones.

The new challenge blogs are SophistiCat Challenges where I have entered their first challenge. The other one is new to me and is called The Corrosive Challenge Blog. That is one joy of blog hopping - finding new challenge sites!!!!!!
Now some of my more avid followers will have noticed that my last two challenge entries have not followed a sketch (well done) - back to normal this week with the gorgeous sketch at SophistiCat Challenge Blog of copy of which is below. Not an easy one but I enjoyed the challenge.

I have some new stamps too which I am over the moon with, they are from The Pink Cat Studio and are called Fairy Friends - the UK supplier where I bought them is a fellow crafter Nikki Fairbairn AKA Bunny Zoe. I ordered one day and received them the next - brilliant service.

I have used papers from Funky Fairy Inspirations Blog where there are some fantastic freebie papers, this one is purple christmas. I coloured the cat and toadstool with watercolour pencils and purple sakura stardust gel pen - you just about see the sparkle.
The rest of the embellishments are from my stash. The ribbon is Anitas Everday Purple polka dot ribbon which I love.

So the other challenges I have entered are:-
Stamp Something where they wanted you to use your favourite stamp - they are at the moment!!
Creative Inspirations where they set the challenge of Lilac, Purple and Grey.
Creative Card Crew asked you to have a Fairy nice day
The Corrosive Challenge Blog whose challenge is "Here Kitty Kitty"! and finally
My Time To Craft where they are having a Polka Dot Party.

Well I am afraid thiings will be taking a little bit longer now as my eldest Dragon is back at school which means I am back at work. Unfortunately, it also means less time to comment on everyones creations so I am just apologising in advance for my reduction in activity.
