Sketch & Stash DT card #33 and some news



Hi everyone, here's my DT card for this fortnight's  Sketch & Stash challenge.
My new stash is the beautiful Whiff of Joy stamp and my neglected stash the lovely Fred She Said freebie flowers.
This fortnight the brilliant sketch is by Becky and it's also her turn to pick the next guest DT.
Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and see if you were lucky enough to win the Simon Says voucher last fortnight and just take a look at the DT and guest DT cards for this challenge, they're amazing!
We're being sponsored by Bunny Zoe this time and these are the gorgeous prizes on offer:


Card Details:
* Image - Whiff of Joy 'Shopping Willow'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania 'Simply Elegant'
* Flowers - Fred She Said 'Pink & Mellow'
* Everything else from my stash

I have some news for you, starting on 18th April there will be a new challenge blog called 'The CD Sunday Challenge'
As the name suggests, this will concentrate on cards made using crafting CDs (whether it's papers, images or just embellishments) and the very exciting part for me is that I've been asked to be one of the DT!!!.
You may already be aware that Wendy has been making CD Sunday cards for some time and showcasing them on her blog, but now she's decided to start a challenge blog as the perfect opportunity to make better use of those gorgeous CDs we all seem to have. I always seem to forget about using them, how about you?
I'd love it if you could try and join in with us, just pop over to the challenge blog to see more details.

Fab card Chrissie you are so very talented and all the cards are so different. I tend to get stuck in a rut with mine. Congrats on the new challenge opening and being on the DT. You must stay up until the early hours making all these super cards. I will be there on Sunday. I will be missing on all the challenges soon though as I am away at the begining of May. Cathy xxxx
