Pollycraft #21, Sketch & Stash #16 and Cupcake Craft #51 Challenges

Pollycraft's challenge this time round has been set by Ria and the theme is 'Buttons & Bows', however I'm not actually going to be entering this card into the challenge as I'm a GD, but I just thought it would be nice to incorporate the theme into my card. But I am entering this card into the Sketch & Stash Challenge and Cupcake Craft Challenge. I've followed the fab sketch over on Sketch and Stash and gone along with the theme this week set by Cupcake which is a 'Beach Theme'.

I've used my new 'Cherry Kisses - Beach' image from Pollycraft, coloured her with copics and chalked the edges. Papers are Funky Fairys 'Simply Brushed'. Ribbon is from my stash, sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, flowers are Papermania, and the buttons I bought yesterday from our local carboot. Below is the sketch to follow over on Sketch & Stash.

I hope everyone's had a good day. We've had no landline phone all weekend, so Steve's had all the wires pulled out today checking to see whats not working after BT did a line check and all was ok. At first he thought it was sky but that was ok, then he finally located it too the cable from the broadband, went out and bought a new cable and hooray the phone appeared to be working, we could ring out. We just thought we'd do a quick check to see if we could receive incoming calls, nope it's constantly engaged. So it looks like it's now the BT Home Hub, we can now ring out but no one can ring in, unless we unplug the hub connection then have no broadband, all very So that needs sorting tomorrow. Plus our poor cat Dusty is a bit poorly, he's been off his food a bit over the weekend, but today he's refused to eat at all, the problem is, he is a little so and so for not drinking whether it's water, milk or anything, so he has to have water mixed into his food, so if he's not eating that means he's also not getting fluids, so it's a trip to the vets for him tomorrow morning. He's 13, so I do hope he'll be OK. We can also tell he's not right as normally he'll give Mollie a swipe if she gets too close to him, but he just can't be bothered at present and just lets her give him a lick, that certainly is out of character for him. So fingers crossed the trip to the vets will sort him out for the better.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
