I like your style!

There is a great sketch over at new challenge blog Stamp with Fun which has been created by the lovely Marlene. Thanks Marlene and the sketch was fun to work with. The image on my card today is Scrapmagasinet Rakle. I just love this trendy young girl and just perfect for teen cards. The sentiment Like your style is by High Hopes. Have you guessed which papers I have used..? Yeah I know.. too predictable and once again MME Magnolia. There is such a great variety of colours in this huge pad and such fun summery colours too. Image coloured with Prisma colour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps for blending.

Do you like my personlised stamp? Lisbet the owner of Scrapmagasinet created this one for me :-) If you want to win your own check this post out!
Nestabilities used on the back of my card are labels one and scalloped circles.

Wow, I can't believe it's already Friday. I want to thank you all for the messages re: Gary's work situation. He had his interview on Tuesday which he said went ok. We was hoping to find out the results yesterday but now his Manager has said that we have to wait until one day next week. Talk about keeping ya dangling! I'll keep you posted!

Thank you for all the wonderful comments left on my PCS work over the last couple of days. Sorry if I haven't been to visit your blog in the last few days but hope to get some time this evening when the kiddies are in bed.

See you Sunday for the next High Hopes challenge.
