New Challenge at Sketch N Stash


Wow, wasn't the closing ceremony of the Paralympics last night AMAZING!!!  I think Tom enjoyed it too!!
I made this card for my son's 22nd birthday a few weeks ago and he's a big fan of Tom Cruise so this digital image, Tom Cruising from Kenny K was just perfect!  And you can find our sketch for our new  challenge at Sketch N Stash below.
Our sponsor this week is Mei Flower and they are offering a whopping  £20 voucher to spend in their online store - I stopped by their stall at the Bluewater craft fair at the weekend and they have loads of lovely goodies!!



As always, at SNS, we like to know what are your new goodies and what are the older items you have used from your stash.  For me, the image is new, but the papers, which are Jenny Bowlin Co'ordinations have been in my stash awhile - I just sanded the embossed stars down to reveal the darker colour beneath. The rosette is a Tim Holtz die, and the sentiment, Inkadinkadoo  The ribbon and twine have also been in my stash an age and were from Ikea!

Ooh and though you can hardly see them, the centre panel papers are new, from the new Craftsman pad by Prima.
Well, I hope you like the sketch  and  join in with us, and if you'd like to see the rest of my fabulous teamies' cards, pop over here to the challenge blog.
It's the Athlete's Parade through London today, and it starts right by  my office, so I'm hoping that we'll be able to pop out and see it over lunch time!  You gotta have a few perks haven't you!!  Hope your day is great  whatever you're doing!
