Because I am full of germs today, and really not feeling very well at all, I've cheated with this post and simply cribbed it from the SKETCH & STASH CHALLENGE blog, so apologies to the Team for that.
We are celebrating Christmas early, and our almost 2 year anninversary ... yes the Sketch and Stash has been going for 2 years at the beginning of January, how amazing is that. So we are doing something a little special this time for you.
We also have some sad news for you. Lols has stepped down from the team due to other comittments, and this will be Cathy's last challenge with us. Cathy was guest designer fro the 1st 2 challegnes, before joining the team fulltime, and Lols was our 2nd guest designr, so both have been here since the beginning. Thank you girls for you hard work over the last 2 years, and we hope you will find the time to join in our challenges.
OK on to challenge 51 ...
Some of our regular sponsors are offering up some fab prizes for you and we also are running a scavenger hunt on the DT members' blogs.Here are our prizes ...

is offering 2 of her fabulous new rubber stamps ...
As well as offering these fabulous prizes we are also running a scavenger hunt. Hidden on some of the DT blogs are some mystery prizes ... if you want to be in with a chance of winning one of these prizes, offered by Meljen Designs and Wags n Whiskers, you need to comment on the DT blogs and enter the challenge (we will check LOL!!).
OK so to be in with a chance of winning one of these fabulous prizes all you need to do is make a card using one of our last 50 sketches ... yep it is your choice which sketch you use. To find our sketch catalogue click on the link on the right hand sidebar ... all of them are there for you to peruse! Please put a pic of the sketch on your blog so we can see which sketch you chose (we will check you have used one of our sketches, so no cheating LOL!!).
OK, so now it is back to me and my DT card - I've reused Sketch No 38
And I've rotated it 90 degrees to the left
I've used a Meljen Designs stamp called Snow Cat - isn't he just adorable? He arrived in the post this week so he's very new stash. He's painted with Distress Inks. Papers are definitely old stash and are a mixture of DCWV from two Christmas Stacks. The sentiments are also new stash, Personal Impressions.
Thanks for joining us, and we are looking forward to seeing your entries.
