A Christmas Wish

Hi everyone,
I'm so sorry that I haven't been about for a while (other than my scheduled DT posts) but I'm afraid that real life has taken over recently, however I'm hoping that normal service will be resumed after the New Year ha ha!

It's my wonderful hubby's 60th birthday today and we celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary last week on the 16th, so with one thing and another December is a busy old month for us.
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful New Year and I look forward to catching up with you all again very soon.

Until then, take care my dear friends
lots of love,

Sketch N Stash DT Card #77

Hi everyone, time for another sketch at Sketch N Stash and this fortnight it's the turn of the lovely Sue to be our sketch designer. It's such a fabulous sketch that I hope you'll be able to join in with us.

Card Details:
* Image - Just Some Lines 'Gabriella Girl 1'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers -  My Mind's Eye 'Bloom & Grow' and K & Co.
* Sentiment - Cuddly Buddly
* Everything else from my stash

This fortnight we're being sponsored by the hugely talented Jehanne of Just Some Lines who is offering our lucky winner a massive $15 of digis of their choice. Wow such a fabulous prize! So what are you all waiting for, get crafting!!

I loved what you all created from my sketch last time and I had a HUGE struggle trying to pick my 'Top 3' (I thought they were all gorgeous!) but I eventually managed to whittle it down to just three, so do please visit our challenge blog and check them out, together with the wonderful designs from our DT and don't forget to see if you were last fortnight's lucky winner.

Sketch N Stash DT Card #76

Hi everyone, it's that time again (where did that last 2 weeks go?)
My DT card for this fortnight's Sketch N Stash Challenge is actually MY sketch. Now please join in with this, as I don't really 'do' sketches so you'll probably never get another of mine (who shouted just as well?! ha ha!)
I used one of my new 'Adorable' digis from Sugar Nellie, I just couldn't resist purchasing a couple of these cuties.

How lovely it is to get back to being able to use whatever I want on my cards, rather than making Xmas cards because I have to. Next year I'm determined to make the occasional ones all through the year. Hooray for those all year round Christmas Challenges!

Card Details:
* Image - Sugar Nellie - Adorables 'Victoria'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - My Minds Eye and Joanna Sheen
* Punch - MS Doily Lace
* Dies - Cuttlebug 'Vintage' and Nestability 'Classic Scallop Rectangles'
* Everything else from my stash

This fortnight, our regular sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering our lucky winner a $15 voucher to spend in their fabulous shop. We are so grateful for their continued sponsorship and generosity.

I do hope you'll manage to join in with us for this challenge (and not just because it's my sketch,  honestly) We love to see your work and always have such a difficult time choosing our 'Top 3' so pop over and check out who made it this time and who our lucky winner was.
