Midway reminder for Sketch N Stash

Morning all, just popping by to remind you that there are another 2 weeks to go before this challenge ends, so still time to get your entry in for the chance to win one of TWO fabulous prizes.
Our wonderful sponsors are:
Stitchy Bears who are offering a prize of $10 to spend in their store
and Buttons For Brains whose prize is £10 to spend in their store

For my card this time I have used BB Kakes -  4 You Boy & Girl 2 Pc Set 
I 'flipped' one of the two digis for this design to give a mirror image and used some of the Do Crafts 'Portobello' papers and I chose Sketch #42 from our archive this time.
Don't forget, you have the choice of which sketch you'd like from our archive, just make sure you post a copy of the sketch you've used.

Sketch N Stash #143

Morning all, well another fortnight has flown by and here we are again with a new challenge at Sketch N Stash Challenge and you have a choice of sketches from our archive, so couldn't be easier! Just don't forget to say which sketch you used and add a photo of it on your post.
I chose Sketch #92 but rotated it 90' in order to fit my image better.
This time we are being sponsored by 2 companies again and they are:
Stitchy Bears who have a $10 voucher up for grabs
 and Buttons For Brains who are offering a £10 voucher
Two prizes definitely worth winning so join in and see if you're lucky!

For my card I have used the gorgeous 'Beach Huts' image (Delicious Doodles
Beach Huts) from Stitchy Bears
I've got a bit of a 'thing' for beach huts actually and I also thought this would be a lovely image for a male OR female card, not often you can make that statement is it? I really like these 'sketchy' images too as the shading is already there when you colour, so, easy peasy. I made it look like a bit of an overcast day, well I'm in the UK so these are the type of summer days we're used to here lol!

My papers are from my unused stash and have been there so long I have no idea where they originally came from and the little chipboard flower matches a set of papers I have which (I think) were Laura Ashley. The image was, as always, coloured using my beloved Promarkers.

Please pop over to the challenge blog and see what the girls have come up with. There are not so many of us this time as some of the team opted for a break, but you know what a glutton for punishment I am, so I decided not to join them.
