Sketch & Stash DT card - #26




Hi everyone, it seems like ages ago since our last Sketch & Stash challenge so I was definitely ready for another of Becky's fabulous sketches. She's so good at designing layouts, they always manage to be interesting without detracting from the main image, just how I like them!
Those of you who visit me regularly will know what an addict I am for Mo Manning's brilliant images, so it should come as no surprise that I've used yet another one.
I've been trying to avoid visiting Mo's shop lately as I always want everything and find it so difficult trying to choose just one or two images. Well, I eventually succumbed to temptation and popped in for one image....I ended up buying six. Not only that, but while I was there I saw another dozen or so that I really NEED!

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning 'They grow so fast'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and Distress Inks
* Papers - My Mind's Eye 'Wild Asparagus'
* Sentiment - PC generated
* Everything else from my stash.

I'm sorry that I haven't been about very much lately, but I seem to have an ever growing list of tasks on my 'To Do' list at the moment. I'm hoping that it won't be too much longer before I'll be visiting all my favourite blogs and leaving comments again as I'm really missing my daily fixes of inspiration from your blogs.

I do hope you'll find time to join in with our first challenge of the New Year, you have a whole two weeks until the next one. Don't forget to let us know what new or neglected items you use on your creations and if you need some inspiration, just check out what my fellow DT members have created this time, they just get better and better.

Beautiful card. I just used the same image for one of my recent challenge cards, so interesting to see how the one image can have different interpretations.

I've added your blog to my favourites blogs links...very inspirational.
