Sketch and Stash Challenge 17 - DT card



Hi everyone!
I know I've been very naughty again and not posted for nearly two weeks, I'm so sorry and I have no one to blame but myself.
I don't know if it's the weather or just me being very lazy, but I honestly don't seem to have the energy or inspiration to do any card making at the moment, despite having lots of birthday cards to make as well as card requests from a friend, who puts some of my cards in her shop.
I promise it's not playing my PC game that's stopping me either, as I can't even be bothered with that at the moment. I do hope that my missing Mojo returns soon, I'm starting to think it may have emigrated as it's been soooo long now since I had any enthusiasm for cardmaking and that's just not like me!
I must have changed my mind at least a dozen times over what to do with Becky's wonderful sketch for the latest Sketch & Stash challenge, but I eventually made my decision and I hope you like it.
The other girls have created such gorgeous DT cards, I do hope you'll pop over and take a look (and maybe join in yourselves?) it really was a fabulous sketch again, I don't know how Becky manages to keep coming up with them.
My new stash was the lovely backing paper, a (freebie!) digital download from Raspberry Road, part of the 'Rose Manor' kit, whilst the girls' themselves were an image, but are available from Charmed Cards and Crafts .

Card Details:
* Backing paper - Raspberry Road 'Rose Manor' free digital download
* Designer papers - K & Co
* Image - Charmed Cards & Crafts 'Girls about Town'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Punches - EK Success 'Retro' flowers
* Everything else from stash

I'm hoping that it won't be another 2 weeks until I'm posting again ... but I'm so lethargic at the moment that I wouldn't swear to it!
I'd like to thank those of you who haven't given up on me yet and still continue to visit and leave me such encouraging comments, I'm so grateful and I enjoy reading each and every one.

Love your blog Chrissie - can't remember if it was like this last time I visited or not - maybe I was half asleep and didn't notice. Any way it's lovely.
There is an award on my blog for you but you have probably had this before.
