Challenge #152 at Sketch n Stash

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you had wonderful weekend.
Yesterday we had a trip to Gloucester Quays to the Victorian Christmas Market but didn't stay long at all as it was just sooooo busy - you couldn't even get a look at the stalls there were that many people!!! We did have a nice lunch at Nandos with Aaron, Kerry and Oliver though :o)

So today I have my DT make for the new challenge over at 

to share with you and this fortnight we have another fabulous sketch to play with.
I decided to rotate it to better suit my image :o)

My friend recently asked for a card for her friend that will be celebrating her 50th Birthday next month and she wanted something to do with sewing - as that is what her friend really enjoys.
I struggled at first but then I remembered I had a fabulous Joanna Sheen House Mouse CD and was sure it had a sewing image in it - and here it is:

Card Ingredients:
Design Papers: Maja Designs 'Coffee in the Arbour'
Flowers, ribbon and adhesive pearls from stash 
Leaves: Marianne Createables
Sentiment: Stampin Up
Numbers: Tim Holtz Sizzix 'Word Play'

Our sponsors this week are:

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

Scribble and Scrap - Anything Goes
That Craft Place - Anything Goes
House Mouse Challenge - Add a Little Sparkle or Anything Goes
Cards Galore - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy - Pairs/Two of a Kind
Milk Coffee - Lots of Embellishments

Thanks for popping by to see me today and for all your lovely comments left recently - I really appreciate all your support.

Have a fabulous day.
