Sketch N Stash Challenge No 74

Hello - hope everyone had a great weekend, busy here!  I went down to The Craft Barn Saturday morning where they were doing lots of demos and I so enjoyed it!  Felt totally inspired and bought  a few must- haves, cough cough!!  Saturday night my three had a bonfire/firework do for their friends and then Sunday morning, it was The Old Crocks! Not me but the annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Rally which goes past just at the top of my road!!  Fab seeing all the old cars and anyone who braves the cold then gets a lovely cooked breakfast! I then spent the afternoon sorting out my ribbons - what a mess they were in and so many!!

Back to Sketch N Stash, this is our new sketch as designed by our wonderful Vicky.
I've used this gorgeous Gingerbread Tilda and coloured her with a mix of Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The lamp post is a Tim Holtz die and the tree a Marianne die. And of course, one of the fabulous new Memory Box dies for the snowflake flurry!

Lots of distressing the edges and also used my Ranger Snow Cap dabber - love how this looks so fluffy!!  Lastly a few white pom poms with added glitter for the snowballs!

Our challenge this fortnight is being sponsored by the brill Simon Says Stamps who with the chance to win a $15 voucher to spend with them.

As ever, the fab ladies and gent at SNS have made some wonderful cards to share with you so do pop on over to the blog for a peek!  Thanks for being here and hope you can play along with us this fortnight.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Totally Tilda - Christmas but with no Reds, Greens or Blues
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes
Magnolia-licious - Photo Inspiration

That comment thief is back again. You know the one who takes away the comments I leave on your blog. What am I doing wrong that so many of my comments don't appear to be there when I go back to check?
Anyway, Julie. So pleased you enjoyed TCB (although I would have liked to have been with you). And I just love your make today! Tilda looks adorable in her purple tones with her pink cheeks and I love your distressing. Great lamppost and snow! Love Lesley
