Challenge #146 at Sketch n Stash

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
What a gorgeous day it was yesterday - so nice to have the sunshine pay a visit. It gave us the chance to get outside and have a mega tidy up of the front garden - the hedges now look a bit bare - but we did the same last year and we know they grow back in full bloom and they do look so neat and tidy now.
The sky doesn't look so happy today however, so I think it will be a crafty day in my little crafty haven - got lots of Festive makes to get on with for a number of Christmas Craft Fayres I have booked starting in November.

So today sees the start of a new challenge over at 

and this fortnight we have a fabulous sketch to work with

So I had a play with some of my new LOTV stash I bought at the GBCF last month before I went on holiday and this is what I came up with:

Card ingredients:

Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: LOTV 'Festive Trimmings'
Spellbinders: Fleur De Lis Squares
Brads from stash
Diamond Stickles
Wink of Stella 'Clear'

Our sponsor this week is:
offering  l lucky winner:
4 images of their choice

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

I haven't forgotten that I still need to share some holiday snaps with you - hopefully I will get that done this week :o)

Have a fabulous day.

Lovely card, just love that snowman, he's fab!

I agree, it's scary how fast it all goes - Morgan starts secondary school this week... it'll be his first time on a bus on his own, and it'll be a miracle if he still has all his stuff when he gets off lol. One year he managed to lose 2 winter coats at school, so we're all betting on how long his new blazer will last! Wow, Y11 for Jack... isn't it a shame they can't just stay little?! Hugs, Lisa x
