Sketch N Stash DT Card #80

Hi everyone, it's time for another challenge over at Sketch N Stash and this week we have a free choice of sketch for you. You may choose any sketch from our back catalogue, just don't forget to let us know which one you decided on.
My choice was Sketch #40 which I thought would be perfect for this boy's card.

Card Details:
* Image - Cuddly Buddly - 'Birthday Boy'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens
* Papers - Papermania - 'For Him'
* Everything else from my stash

We are lucky enough to be sponsored this week by Cuddly Buddly where Kim is offering our lucky winner the 3 wonderful digi images that the DT have used for their cards.
If you want to see the others, just check out the fabulous examples done by the rest of the DT, and don't forget to see if you were last fortnight's lucky winner or one of our Top 3 while you're over there.

Sketch N Stash DT Card #79

Hi everyone, I'm here today with this fortnight's Sketch N Stash DT card. The designer this time around was the lovely Julie, and what a great sketch it is too.
I seem to be going through a bit of a 'less is more' phase, so I left off the embellishments this time around and concentrated on the lovely image and papers. Unfortunately my scanner didn't seem to like the card too much, in real life the colour palette is pinks, creams and browns.

Card Details:
* Image - A Day For Daisies - 'Mum Girl'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens
* Papers - DCWV, My Minds Eye and Papermania
* Die - Spellbinders - 'Picot Edge Circles'
* Everything else from my stash

We're being sponsored this fortnight by My Mum's Craft Shop who are offering one lucky winner a £10 gift voucher, so I'd say it's definitely worth joining in.
I hope you'll manage to join in with us again this time around, if you're in need of inspiration just pop over to the challenge blog and see what gorgeousness all my teamies have come up with. Oh, and while you're there don't forget to check out the winner and Top 3 from our last challenge.

Sketch N Stash DT Card #78

Hi everyone, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year and are not suffering too much this morning?

It's time for another Sketch N Stash Challenge and this time our sketch is from the lovely Michelle and I couldn't resist using this adorable digi from Heather Ellis, just look at that wonderful expression isn't she too sweet?
I recently purchased this wonderful Marianne 'Chinese Rose' die, I've admired it so much when I've seen it on other people's creations (Edna, take heed as you're mainly responsible for this!)  Unfortunately, I don't seem to have mastered the technique involved and it's not looking it's best here. I think a lot more practice is required, so if any of you have any hints or tips I'd be very grateful.

Card Details:
* Image - Heather Ellis 'Pure Innocence 034'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - K & Company and DCWV
* Sentiment - Pink Petticoat 'Girly Curly'
* Dies - Marianne Designs Creatables 'Chinese Rose'
* Everything else from my stash

We have a brand new sponsor for this brand new year, Heather Ellis I'm sure you are familiar with her wonderful digis, but if not please visit her. I love the simplicity of her drawings, no wonder this range is called 'Pure Innocence'

I hope you can manage to join us again this time, we're looking forward to spending another year with you, looking at your gorgeous creations and scratching our heads over choosing our 'Top 3'
Pop over to the challenge blog to see who made it last time and who our lucky winner was.
