Some news and Sketch and Stash Challenge #5

Well, this feels a bit strange. I've been away so long that I've forgotten how to do this, anyway onward!
Firstly, I'd like to thank you all for your lovely messages, they've really cheered me up. How lovely to know I've made so many wonderful blogging friends in such a short time.
My back is feeling a lot better now, nearly back to normal (excuse the pun!) and I'm really looking forward to catching up with you all very soon. Unfortunately it won't be for a little while longer as my DH has decided I deserve a nice, new computer!! So, this post is being scheduled and I will be losing my PC on Monday until....I don't know when! I'm looking forward to zooming around to you all once I'm up and running again though.

My card today is for this week's Sketch and Stash Challenge and I can't believe that we're up to number 5 already! I'm so sorry that I haven't managed to get to see what you've all done for Challenge 4 yet, but I promise I'll get there soon and thank you all for joining in again! For those of you who haven't managed to join us yet, why not see if you can make it this time?

This was another fabulous sketch by Becky and I really don't think I've done it justice at all as I'm a bit out of practice at the moment.
I bought this lovely download image a few weeks ago, but this is the first time I've managed to use it, with the change in the weather I wanted to do something with a promise of Spring and this fitted the bill. I printed out the image twice and cut out and decoupaged the flowers so they stand out a little more.
Card Details:
* Download image 'Pretty Window' - Sketching Stampers
* Image coloured with Letraset Pro markers
* Lace ribbon - K & Co
* Papers, bow and brads - from my stash

Thank you all for visiting and I'm looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to very soon.

I'm afraid to own up that I failed on last time's challenge Chrissie. Time seems to just fly by and before you know it you're too late for the challenge.

So sorry - will try harder this time. Looking forward to you being back in action.
I love your little window download - so cute.
Oh and before I go I'm getting better with the Promarkers. Think I've got the knack a bit more now.
