New sketch at SNS - number 73

Morning bloggers and just where did that weekend go?  It goes so quickly!!
Still Monday does mean it's time for the new challenge at Sketch N Stash.  Didn't you all love the last one - wow, we had so many fabulous entries!!

The sketch for the next fortnight has been chosen by our wonderful Gemma and here it is - fab isn't it!!  Hope you like it enough to play along - we're being sponsored by  Pollycraft and there are 10 - yes. 10, digi images to be won!!


For my card, I 've used a Penny Black image - another purchase from my recent visit to The Glitter Pot, along with the Bo Bunny Papers.  The corner snowflake die is by Memory Box and the sentiment by Waltzing Mouse - this is my item that has been in my stash more than 6 months - just!!  Well, and the pearls! (Don't forget that you need to tell us what has been in your stash awhile!)

I had real trouble with this card first of all, well my colouring to be exact, think this was my third attempt!!  I was also inspired by a card that my lovely matey, Alex, had coloured - she teaches Copics colouring at the GP so that may tell you how awesome her colouring is!! Maybe it was the large expanse on the present, not sure, but ended up rather pleased with it in the end!
 Thanks so much for continuing to pop by - I get a thrill everytime someone leaves a comment - they pop into my in box at work too, and they do brighten up a dull day of tax codes  and salary queries!!
Happy Monday all!!
