I haven't done a weekly challenge on UKS for ages but the one set last week by the Crafty Magpies was an interesting one and there was a great sketch to use.
This was a great challenge for stash busting as I used a piece of cardstock leftover from an Anita class and the leftovers from a Sarah's Cards retreat class - My Mind's Eye 'Fine and Dandy'. The thickers used were also a set that I had had for eons and barely any letters left in it so I had to use a zero for the O.
The criteria for the challenge spelled out the name Magpie -
M - use metal - I used metal brads for flower centres
A - use an alphabet - I put a title on the page using foam thickers
G - use the above sketch from Got Sketch
P - use paint, punches or pearls - I used punched flowers and butterfly, plus pearls used to embellish butterfly
I - take inspiration from a quote - I used the following " It is easy to say how we love new friends, and what we think of them, but words can never trace out all the fibres that knit us to the old" George Eliot
E - add embellishments - I mad flowers and a butterfly.
I used this photograph of me and my oldest friend Allison - we don't see each other very often but when we do the years just disappear and it is like we have never had any time apart - I just love friendships like that.
