Shopping our Stash with Freshly Made Sketches

The sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week looks like this.

and the team at Shopping our Stash want to see hearts, too.  

So here is my card.  

I made several in different colurways.  Here is another one.

Hubby photographed these for me, and can't you just tell!  You can see the metallic sheen of the gold hearts, the texture created by the embossing folder, the lovely sparkle of the glitter.  Fabulous.
He has spent all week this week working on a new website rather than taking photos.  If you have five minutes you can find it at  If anyone in the UK is looking for a photographer you should have a look.  Peter travels all over the UK, bringing the studio to your home.  All of the images on his website have been taken in someone's home rather than a studio (apart from the outdoor shots).  It works really well because clients have all their clothes, makeup, etc to hand;  they can change outfits/looks as many times as they like.  Peter sets aside the whole day, so you can have him there for as long or short a time as you wish.  He is also very good at putting scopophobics (fear of being photographed - I googled it😉) at ease; he shows you how to pose to get the most flattering shot (very useful for curvy ladies such as myself), and you end up having so much fun you forget there is a camera there.  

Anyway, enough advertising, thank you for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your crafty day!
