Sketch & Stash Challenge

Oh no, another missed challenge - what am I like! I made this card for last fortnight's Sketch & Stash challenge (they give you two whole weeks and I STILL missed the closing date durrr!). (Edited 6pm - What a dozy mare I am, the challenge doesn't close till next week rofl so I'm entering it now!!)

I have used stuff from my new DT kit from The Hobby House - Jill is now stocking Peachy Keen stamps and this little Snickerdoodle Gift Elf is one of them, how cute! I also got lots and lots of new delish Xmas papers to play with ..... Bo Bunny, Kaiser and SEI. I was in paper heaven on the weekend lol. I've to make a series of cards using these papers and stamps for display boards for the next few shows we will be attending so you will be seeing quite a few cards made with these papers - hope you don't get bored. Unfortunately Jill can't list the stamps for sale on the website but if there is anything I use that you "need" just drop Jill an email enquiries@thehobbyhouse.co.uk and she'll sort it for you. They will also be available at The Papercraft Show at Harrogate on the weekend and also at the show at Ally Pally at the end of the month (we'll be attending both shows so hope to see some of you then)snickerdoodle-elf-1

This is the first card done, using Bo Bunny papers - love love love these!! One of my favourite colour combo's is red and turquoise/aqua so no wonder I chose to use these first lol. I used some Liquid Applique and Glamour Dust for his button and cuff.
