Sketch & Stash #19

Here we are again with another Sketch & Stash challenge and that means another fab sketch from Becky!
I decided that I'd attempt a Christmas(ish!) card with this sketch as I haven't made ANY yet and I'm starting to panic. I know it's not very christmassy, but I have to work up to these things slowly (as anyone who knows me will tell you, I HATE making christmas cards!!)

Card Details:
* Image - Whiff of Joy 'Willow with Cookies'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Laura Ashley
* Everything else from my stash

It would be lovely if you managed to make something for Sketch & Stash and don't forget that you have two weeks to join in the fun on our challenges. Becky's sketch was so great to use, and I'm sure that the other DT cards will give you loads of inspiration, as they're all gorgeous!
I've had such fun visiting all your blogs to see what you did with the last challenge. It was such a shame, but I couldn't get to see a few of the entries as Blogger wouldn't let me in, so if you're planning on joining in again, please make sure that you've set up your profile to allow views and comments.

I'd love if you joined in with my blog candy as this is the first time I've ever done this and I'm a bit nervous (to say the least!) I'll be adding some more bits to it and posting a piccy of the additions and a list of what's included nearer the time.

Hi it's me again, I've sent you an e-mail but I don't know if you got it or not, so if not the answer is the 2 inch square ink pads,It's the first time I'd used them properly and just had fun, I also put in, distress inks on the internet and I watched a girl talk about how to use them and just followed her advice I've got a long way to go,but at least I'm having fun!
Hugs Liz x
