A Couple of Challenges...

At last, lol. I managed to squeeze in a challenge card at the end of last week but this is the first chance I have had to post it. I loved this sketch when I saw it and I really wanted to use this new image which is from a set I won over at Sketch Saturday a few weeks back. The only problem here is that I'm not sure I like the end result. But, here it is anyway, lol.



Ingredients:
Image: A fantastic prize from Sketch Saturday Blog;
Medium: Promarkers;
Sentiment: Bits of Ivory Digi Tickets by Cuddly Buddly;
Papers: DCWV The Christmas Stack and some printed foil card from stash;
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; Leaves from Hobbycraft;
Other: Stickles; Glamour Dust; Flatbacked Pearls from Kanban;
Frame: LOTV free template.

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp: Domi's Fab Sketch;
Stamp Something: Christmas Colour Combo (red and green for me);
Allsorts: A Candle or other Light (candles on tree with pearls for the flame);
ABC Christmas Challenge: Y is for Yuletide (holly & berries; red & green; candles - I used all 3!);
Secret Crafter: Christmas;
A Spoonful of Sugar: Christmas Cards;
Passion For Promarkers: Anything Goes (mega Christmas Challenge);
Lollipop Crafts: Winter Theme.

Well, think that's about it for now. We have had awful weather again yesterday and school is closed AGAIN. Steven hasn't been to nursery for about a fortnight now and there was no college last week and there will be none tomorrow...just as well I went shopping with Mum on my own on Saturday or I would be driven mad, lol. It was a lovely stress free day as well!! Ok, I am off to finish my DT card for tomorrows challenge

Thanks for stopping by

Hugs
Suzanne
