Sketch Saturday #342

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by

But first I need to apologise for my absence last week.  Christmas sure was busy with lots of visits to our new baby grandson and his 2 year old brother PLUS a home invasion from our Greek 5 year old grandson and his mum who stayed with us for pretty much the whole last two weeks.  The Hubster and I are exhausted and whereas I have not managed to do much blog visiting and (so far) I have failed to enter a couple of "Favourites from 2014" challenges I wanted to, I did manage to make a card for today.  

I used some new Theresa Collins papers I picked up at The Maxx with this cute Flower Teapot from Bugaboo which you can find here.  The image is coloured with Copics and Promarkers.  The petals and the main part of the teapot have been popped up with silicone and I glazed the teapot too so it's a darn shame that you can't see it.  For sure my card looks better IRL.  The additional ladybugs are Memory Box (or perhaps Poppy) dies.
Now we would like you to scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.  Don't forget to share some love with my lovely teamies too.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Anything Goes at
Simon Says, Creative Card Crew, Cute Card Thursday and (A is for Anything Goes) at ABC
Something Old (my MB ladybug dies) and Something New (my image and design papers) at
Loves Rubber Stamps
