SN Rosie

SO sorry for not being around yesterday - I was attending a Business Set Up Seminar on Marketing - yea sounds boring and while it was (I already hold a NC in Business) at times I made a few contacts - a wedding photographer, a website designer, and a lovely lady who informed me of local craft fairs I knew nothing about!! I also learned that I need to get on FB and set up a Business Page (I hate FB but suppose if it is for my benefit then it may be ok).

Some of you may already know I am trying to set up a small 'from home' business selling  my cards and Wedding Stationery (still working on  my range so not revealed any yet).  I am not really taking any risks financially as the Stationery will only be made to order and my cards sell anyway so fingers crossed I get some more orders.

Anyway, back to today and here is my card made using the ever so cute Rosie from Sugar Nellie Home Grown range at Funky Kits.

I used my NEW PRISMAS to colour but am still not sure of I am using them correctly - my work is nowhere near as good as others who use these fab pencils (if you need to know where to get them in the UK please contact me as I have a fab supplier).

 I followed the current sketch at Sketch Saturday to create this card and have to say I love it - the sketch that is so another one added to my ever increasing list of great sketches.

Thanks so much for visiting today. Got a busy day ahead with the dreaded HW to catch up on - YUK!


  1. Every cloud has a silver lining - the seminar may have been boring, but I hope the contacts you've made prove fruitful. I so admire people who set up their own businesses, good luck!

    The card is just adorable, and I agree with you about the sketch, very useful! Take care -

    luv, Mags x
