Sketch N Stash #154

Morning all, well where did that year go???
A huge THANK YOU to all of our sponsors at Sketch N Stash for their continuing support this year.
For our final challenge of the year we have another 2 sponsors again,
firstly Delicious Doodles are offering a lucky winner 4 images of their choice
This lovely company is closing after 31st December so we wish Teri luck in whatever path she chooses next.

Our second sponsor is another of our regulars, the wonderful Ooh La La Creations who are offering a second winner a CD of their choice from their store.

For my card I have used Delicious Doodles gorgeous 'Holly & Rosehip Wreath' image, coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from Papermania, the dies are Memory Box and Spellbinders and the sentiment is from Crafty Bitz.

Sadly this will be the final challenge for Sketch N Stash and as I have been a DT member from the start I know I shall miss being part of this lovely team, but all good things come to an end.
Thank you to all of our SNS participants and sponsors for their support.

It just remains for me to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a very happy and healthy 2015

Blanche Fussy Cutting

Afternoon all, I'm here with another card today.
I purchased this image ages ago but had never got around to colouring it up until now. I love Mo Manning's digis and especially her 'Blanche' ones.
She is coloured with my Promarkers as usual and I've added some Stickles Stardust for lots of sparkle, although it isn't showing up too well in the photo I'm afraid.
I'm having such fun playing now that the pressure of making my xmas cards is over and I'm actually managing to join in with some challenges for a change too.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches
Passion for ProMarkers - I've gone for Punches, Glitter, Blooms
Cute Card Thursday - Sparkle

I'll be back tomorrow morning with my regular DT card for Sketch N Stash, so see you then.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend

Morning all, here's another little card made to celebrate finishing my christmas cards.
I have long admired the beautiful Aurora Wings digis but had resisted temptation until a couple of days ago. My willpower gave out and I purchased 2 images from them, I'm pretty sure it won't be my last visit!
This gorgeous image is called 'Pearls' (although as I stickled them 'diamonds' is probably a more apt name for the card) it was coloured, as usual, with my Promarkers and then I fancy cut the image and layered it onto a Spellbinders die-cut.
Unfortunately neither the sparkle nor the vibrant colours show up too well here so it actually does look better in real life, although judging from the mess I made of her hair I definitely need to sign up for a colouring class as my christmas present from hubby.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Aurora Wings Challenge - 'All that Glitters'
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes

Forget Me Not

Afternoon all, just popped in to show you my latest card.
At last I've finished those pesky christmas cards for this year and about to make a start on next year's (yeah, I know incredible ain't I?) but thought I'd have a bit of a play first.
This card uses another of Rick St Dennis digis. Now I love all of his stuff but his vintage style images are my favourites, especially his ladies in hats range. This little beauty is called 'Forget Me Nots' and I really enjoyed colouring her up with my Promarkers.
I've made another couple of cards as well which I'm hoping to show you over the next couple of days.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers
Simon Says Stamp
Divas by Design
