Stampin for the weekend Sketch 1 and 2

I could not decide which sketch to follow at Stampin for the weekend so I did one of each. I have used my new digi images of Penelope (if you read my last post I used with this image it reminds me of my daughter's crazy hair) I love these images, I am going to put a photo of Lyss with this post showing you her crazy curls. I liked both these sketches although I am not fortunate enough to have any nestabilities yet and it is quite hard to cut a circle so I distressed the edges to cover up my less than perfect circles. WE are off to have a picnic and hang out at the duck park for the rest of the day with Katie, Jordan, Lilly and Zac. I love it when we get to catch up with everybody we haven't seen for a while on school holidays. Have a great day.



  1. OH these cards look wonderful. I love the bright colours you have used. The images are so pretty and funny:O) Beautiful colouring. The distressed edges looks great. I love the photo of your daughter, she is gorgeous:O)
    You have done a wonderful take on both Donna's and Kimmi's sketch.

  2. Wow Amanda, you've been busy, and what a fabulous job you've done with both sketches too. Such cute images of Penelope, and yes i can see the resemblance in the hair with your daughter, and she is so cute. Great papers and color combination on both cards, they match perfectly, and you've done a good job on the distressing. Hope you having a good day out today.
