Sketch N Stash DT Card #71

Hi everyone, time for another Sketch N Stash Challenge and this time our sketch has been designed by Daniele, isn't it gorgeous? (I found it quite challenging this fortnight, but then I'm not good at anything where I have to get angles right so just don't look at my card too closely!!)

I notice that I'm back to using my Promarkers again. The Spectrum Noir pens are lovely, but there's just something about my beloved Promarkers. Maybe it's that divine smell? and of course I do have an awful lot of colours, whereas I only bought a few SN pens to start. I must persevere with these though as I'm sure the fact that they are refillable will be really useful.
The other team members have done beautiful things, as always, so do pop over to the challenge blog and take a look.

Card Details:
* Image - Meljen 'Happy Panda' digi
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania and Crafty Ann's
* Sentiment - Sentiments 4 You
* Everything else from my stash

This fortnight we're being sponsored by Meljen Designs again, and they are offering our lucky winner 4 images of their choice.
I just love this sweet Meljen Panda image, doesn't that expression just say 'Mmmm Yummy' to you?

It was my turn to choose the Top 3 and you certainly made it a difficult task. I always think it's nice to be able to choose your favourite sketches now and again, which is why my design week is always a free choice (that and the fact that I'm useless at designing sketches ha ha!) and judging by the amount of entries we received  you certainly seemed to agree with me!
I do hope you'll find time to join in with us again this time and don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to see if you are our lucky winner, or one of our Top 3 from the last challenge.

Sketch N Stash DT Card #70

Hi everyone, I'm back with my latest DT card for Sketch N Stash and this fortnight we're offering a 'free choice' sketch.
Just take a look at the old sketches in the 'Sketch Catalogue' section on the challenge blog and pick which one you'd like to use (don't forget to let us know which one you've chosen though!)
I went for Sketch 55 for my card, I thought the layout would be just right as I decided to make a C5 sized card for a change.
This was a 'Thank You' card for a very special friend who recently sent me the most gorgeous 'New Home' gift, this wicker basket filled with a box of belgian choccies, a bottle of rose wine and a stunning miniature rose plant.
 If you're reading this Sheila, you already know how important you are to me sweetie and how grateful I am to be able to call you my friend.

Card Details:
* Image - Penny Black 'Hitchin' A Ride'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and Spectrum Noir Pens
* Papers - Papermania Colossal 'Spring Life'
* Punch - MS 'Eyelet Lace'

This fortnight's prize is from our wonderful regular sponsor Simon Says Stamp and they are offering our lucky winner a $15 voucher to be spent in their store so I hope you'll manage to join in with us.
If you're in need of any inspiration just pop over to the Challenge blog where the DT have come up with the most amazing creations again and while you're there see if you were lucky enough to have won or been nominated as one of our Top 3 from the last challenge.
