Sketch N Stash - our final sketch for 2012

Well we've made it safely to the last day of the year.  I'm back to work today, but it should only be a short day, not that we're doing anything tonight, I'm not one for parties or big celebrations.  We shall probably watch Jools Holland and hubby will go to bed early!!
This is our sketch for the challenge starting today at at SNS Challenges, as designed by our fabulous Janet.

As soon as I saw it  I knew that this gorgeous teddy bear trio from Lili of the Valley would be perfect - I bought them ages ago so they well and truly count for forgotten stash!

I've coloured them with my Promarkers, and used a little tip from my friend Alex, when she appeared on Create and Craft TV, demonstrating Copics!!  I sprayed a little Copics Blender onto an old flannel and then dabbed at the faces of my little bears to give that furry feel - what a great technique, thanks Alex - and you were fabulous on C&C!!

 I've teamed them up with some My Mind's Eye, A Beautiful Life papers, a PaperTrey Ink die and stamp for the Sentiment, and a Magnolia die for the little bow strip.                                                    

Our sponsor for this challenge is My Mum's Craft Shop who are offering a £10 voucher to the lucky winner!

You can see the gorgeous makes by the rest of my SNS teamies here, and while I'm here, can I wish you all a wonderful, peaceful and healthy new year.

Such a lovely bear trio Julie my sketch could have been designed especially for them. Alex's technique looks amazing on their little faces, and those papers are gorgeous.
I wish you and your family a very happy new year xx

Wishing you a Happy New Year
