You SHORE do have alot of FUN together {Twisted Sketches Challenge 70}

Just pretend the date you see at the top is THURSDAY okay?!  'Cos I can't wait up 'til after midnight to get this post up {which would work as the challenge is due in today but we are 8 hours ahead of the States here in South Africa}.  Anyhoo, this is my post for tomorrow {which is probably today for you reading this now!}  Okay, I'll shut up now & stop confusing y'all...




Supplies:-  Cardstock - Treasures Deep Blue, Bazzill Tan,  Graph Paper - Fancy Pants, Craft Print paper - from my stash,  SHORE bingo card, journal card & gold glimmer mist - Tattered Angels,  Big Alphas - Sassafras, Small alphas - October Afternoon, Frames - Pink Paislee Artisan Elements, Brown inkpad - Colour Box Chalks, Rose Ribbon - Dear Lizzy for American Crafts, Metal sentiment - Making Memories, Stickpin - Maya Road., Journaling pen - Creative Memories, {15 manufacturers!}

I did this in response to a sketch challenge you can find here & I have posted it here for you too.

I am loving the Pink Paislee Artisan Elements frames & centres {see the cream centre above}.  They are soft & pliable & you can ink/spray/paint them - a great, versatile product.  That company has gone from strength to strength in recent years I've noticed!


I bought a set of giant bingo cards & journal cards with a beach theme, last time I got a box of goodies from the States {Tattered Angels} & enjoyed using this one here as a play on the word "sure" as it tied in nicely with the neautral papers & I used a matching journal card below too.


I am so in love with this rose ribbon & have it in scarlet, brown & green too but have to hide it from my daughter who keeps wanting to sew it onto her T-shirts!  If you scroll up to the main photo you'll see that I also used some gold glimmer mist on the bottom left-hand corner - it looks a lot more effective on the layout than how it has photographed.  The "twist" to go along with the sketch was that we needed to use a PIN somehere so as you can see I have stuck a pin into the ribbon next to the word FUN.

And with that I must now leave you for my bed, which is calling my name!  It is raining here AGAIN...very tedious...and my poor gardener is not earning a living at the moment because every day that he is due to work the heavens open!!  The upside obviously is that my garden will flourish & I have just completed quite a bit of Spring planting so my timing there was spot on.  Have been watching the Chillean miner rescues all day today.  Wow, how amazing.  God is certainly great.  How anyone can doubt him is beyond me!
