My first DT for Sketch & Stash - Challenge 47

Crumbs, is it really Monday morning already?  Where has the weekend gone?  By the time you are reading this, I shall be on my way to work so I hope my scheduling plays by the rules!

Anyhoo, I am chuffed to be able to say that it is SKETCH & STASH CHALLENGE time and as the newest member of the DT (this is my debut) I am feeling a bit nervous but the team are wonderful and I've had such a great welcome.

Sue has produced an amazing sketch for you for Challenge 47 and, naturally, the team have provided some stunning inspiration for you to ooh and ahh over.  The sponsor for this challenge is POLLYCRAFT DESIGNS so if you love your digi images, this is the place to go.

Here is Sue's sketch - remember, you have two weeks to enter ..... so no excuses!
And here is my card:

So what stash did I use?  My new stash is that adorable Lili Of The Valley bunny stamp called The Night Before Christmas, this is his first inking, and I've coloured him with my Distress Inks, which I still class as new stash as I keep adding to the collection (lol), and the neglected stash are those Papermania papers, the blue is the oldest but the pink isn't too far behind.  The Martha Stewart snowflake is on it's second Christmas, as is the textured mirri card and the Sizzlets corners.

Thanks for coming over to see me, and I do hope you can take part in the challenge.

I'm also going to enter this card into the LILI OF THE VALLEY CHALLENGE who have the theme of Winter Fun this time.  I confess that this challenge has become a bit of a thorn in my side lately - I adore the LOTV stamps and have so much fun playing with them but I am still striving to reach the amazing standard that the LOTV team set.  I don't want to win the challenge (although that would be nice) but my ambition is to eventually make the Top 3!

Hugs, Squirrel xx
