Sketch N Stash new challenge and apologies for my absence!

Hey there blogland, so sorry for not being about.  We're in the midst of moving and it is just so stressful, especially as we haven't moved for 25 years, we're hoping to move 330 miles away and we have to find flats for our girls and work out our notices!!  It's fraught with danger, I tell you!!
Still I did manage to find a little colouring time to make this card for today's new challenge at Sketch N Stash.  It's free choice on the sketch too - you can pick any sketch from our back catalogue here over at 
I've pick sketch no 70 and used this lovely little chappie from Mo's Digital Pencil called Extra.  I thought I'd continue the paper theme by using papers from my scraps with newsprint/script print.

The corner happy birthday is a  Die-Versiions Die, and the top and bottom edging are cut with a Tim Holtz strip die. Hope you like my little newspaper too that I made up with my leftover scraps of paper.
Oooh and our challenge this time runs for a month, to allow for summer holidays and other summer activities, so you have plenty of time to join in with us.  We have two awesome sponsors for this challenge as below:

Sponsor - Stitchy Bears
Prize $10
Buttons For Brains

Well, wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed that our move all goes according to plan, we need it!
Before I go, don't forget to take a peek at the other SNS DT cards here - they are fabby!!
