Sketch and Stash Challenge :-)

My goodness ,, the time is just flying by ,,, not many weeks left to Christmas and I have done NOTHING in preparation ,,, thank goodness I have been making Christmas cards all year, at least I have a few of those. On saying that, I am going to try to sell as many of them as I can to raise funds for the Gozo SPCA and if I sell them ,,I will buy the SPCA Charity cards for family and friends :-) After all it is all for a good cause eh and every little helps !! :-)

Anyway ,,, time for another fab sketch designed by the lovely Sue and don't forget to tell us what your new or unused stash is :-)

We are sponsored for this challenge by the lovely Katarina at Whiff of Joy so a gorgeous stamp on offer for one lucky entrant :-)



For my card I used this lovely LOTV Collecting the Tree stamp, coloured with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink . I then used Star Dust Stickles and Diamond Dust for sparkle. The papers are very old and neglected Papermania ones ,, these are from a blue set ,, not sure what they were called, I also embossed some white card with a cuttlebug folder and inked with Stormy Sky Distress ink I used a Martha Stewart border punch and snowflake punch and a small Woodware snowflake punch too. I added some ribbon from my drawer and a few glimmer dots to finish :-)



Challenges:

LOTV Glitter and Glitz
Craft Your Days Away ,,,, Christmas Trees
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle ,,,,, no Flowers
Stampin for the Weekend,,, Winter
The Stamp Man ,,, Christmas and TH product ,, distress ink
PaperPlay ,,, Let it Snow ( 2nd entry)
