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

Good morning all :-) I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are all ready for a new Sketch and Stash Challange :-) I have visitors and am still scheduling all my posts so I hope Mr Blogger is behaving and posts for me :-)

This fortnight it was Cathy's turn to design the sketch for us to use and I know you will all LOVE it :-) Nice and easy !! my fave type !! :-)

Heidi at Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring us and will be giving one lucky entrant a $20 spree to her store and she will pay for the postage too !! all the new goodies from the CHA are arriving daily so fabulous new stuff to choose from !! :-)


For my card I chose this gorgeous new Sarah Kay stamp that was in a lovely parcel of goodies from a lovely blog buddy that lives not a million miles away from me in Malta !! :-) I don't know whether she would mind me mentioning her name so I'd better not at the mo :-) BIG THANK YOU ,, you know who you are xx

I coloured the image with copics and the papers are from a Basic Grey Capella pad ,, I LOVE this one and need to buy another I think ! I also used some beige coredinations ,,, need more of this too !! :-) The flowers are Prima Athena Powder Puff ,, soo pretty :-) I used a few negelcted pearls ,, I completely forgot I had these and I also used Platinum stickles for sparkle ! The sentiment is from a new LOTV set.

here's the sketch for you to follow :-)

Challenges :

Copic Creations ,,, Summer Reading

Crafty Angels ,,,,, Something Old or something New ,,,, new stamp :-)

Cupcake Crafts ,,, Distressing

thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see ,, so hop on over to the Sketch and Stash Challange to see them :-)

I have a blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to see it :-)
