Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge #21

It's another lovely sketch as always over on Sketch 'n' Stash and of course a great opportunity to use my new and/or neglected crafty stash.  Can you believe I'm already getting a little fed up with doing xmas cards and it's only October, hopefully my xmas mojo will soon get into gear again, there are so many gorgeous xmas images and stamps I'm so eager to use, and in fact have many coloured up, just can't seem to get any inspiration from the numerous papers I have, and I have lots, maybe it's because I have to many to choose from, but then again I can't seem to find any I want to use.  So I've gone for a card which could be suitable for a birthday, thank you etc.. and it gave me the chance to use one of my favourite stamps that's been a bit neglected in recent months, and use some new papers I hadn't yet used which were sitting there themselves being neglected then there's my new Petaloo flowers too.

Though this Sugar Nellie stamp is quite summery, I went for an autumn theme, well it was only a couple of weeks ago you could actually still sit outside in a short sleeved top even though it was officially autumn.


Stamp - Sugar Nellie 'A Good Book' (neglected stamp)

Papers - Background DP ~ Daisy & Dendelion (new), Orange cardstock from stash, Dark DP ~ Basic Grey, Flowery DP ~ Crafts Too (new)

Colouring Medium - Copics & Promarkers

Flowers - Petaloo (new), Leaves from stash

Other Embellishments - Dew Drop

Thanks for stopping by, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and don't forget the clocks 'Fall' back tomorrow night here in the UK.

It's a beautiful card Joanne - love the colours you have used. You need to put on some Christmas Tunes to get you in the mood - might be best to wait until Halloween and Bonfire night are out of the way first though lol. Hope you get your mojo back soon. Shell x
