Why not pop on over to The Sketchy Challenges blog for all the details . We are also having a DT call .....so if you like sketches and want to be part of a lovely team then why not go for it !!!

I have used a LOTV stamp where I have used distress ink pads and markers to colour . I have then added  dots with an inkessentials white gel pen to add snow and have used snowtex on all the panels of design paper from Pion.... .wintertime in Swedish Lapland. I have cut out the stamps too from pion papers.

 
I have covered a paper bag to make a small book with opening for a gift card . The snowflake die is from Noor design and has been inked with Chipped Sapphire distress ink and then a touch of snowtex and are finished with half backed pearls. I have also used Magnolia Holly die again using these gorgeous papers. All the lovely embellishments are from Live & Love Crafts ....the metal corners...the floral spray...prima wooden envelope and WOC roses and stamens.

Here is my last Summer card it's been a lovely summer here and we had so much lovely weather it's sad to see Autumn coming so quickly ...I have chosen Tilda with her bike she is way to cute and I enjoyed colouring her with distress ink markers . I had a play with a spellbinders die where I scored the edges and raised them up to make something a wee bit different lol.
 
 
I have used the Tim Holtz on the edge butterfly die at the top a super surprise Birthday present from my wonderful friend. I have also used doohickey dies ,the peonies , tea labels and butterfly all cut from magnolia Design paper and edges with gesso . The large old bike charm and apples are from Live & Love Crafts .... as with the flowers and lace beaded trim.
