Sketch and Stash Challenge ,,, Lisa's Sketch :-)

It was Lisa's turn to design the sketch for this Sketch and Stash Challenge and she has done a brilliant job ! Fab sketch ! :-)

We are sponsored this week by Meljen Designs

so there are some gorgeous Digi Images on offer !! :-)

The DT were given a choice of images to use, for this card I didn't use the one I chose ,, long story and I won't bore you with the details ,, just suffice it to say you will see that one in 2 weeks time !! This image is a new one that my lovely friend Emma bought me for my birthday I coloured the image with copics and the edges coloured with distress inks, pigment ink and embossed with sparkle :-) I stamped paw prints and wrapped some wool around them. The papers are My Minds Eye and these were a gift from Joanne :-)
I also used my neglected Martha Stewart Lacey border punch :-)

I will be entering this card into the Meljen Designs Challenge
the theme is Lace, Ribbon, Fiber ,,, I have 2 of the 3 :-)

I also made a card using my Pop-U-lar Fun House Mouse stamp. I wouldn't say the stamp is neglected as much as unused for ages :-) The balloons were made on my cricut ,,, that is neglected ! The papers are new and from Creating Keepsakes.

The mice paw prints are a PB stamp and I added a few gems too. I also used a Martha Stewart border punch on this too :-)

The DT and Jayne our GD have made some fabulous card for you to see this week ,, so hop on over to the Sketch and Stash Challenge to see them and please leave comments :-)

I have a blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog ,, also I MIGHT have a candy for the ABC Christmas Challenge hop too !! :-)

Fab cards, Lorraine. Love how you have used the wool on the first one... very clever.
That house mouse stamps is one of my favs. Just love the little smile on the mouse about to pop the balloon.
Your extra balloons are brilliant.
