Sketch Saturday #42 and some News

Hi folks!
It's Saturday again, and I don't know about you but for me it seems like March is speeding along at a cracking pace. It'll be Easter before we know it. I'm scheduling this post as on Saturday morning I shall be travelling up to The Craft Barn in Lingfield to demo Whiff of Joy stamps. That's right, you can buy Whiff of Joy Stamps at The Craft Barn, just give them a call and they will sort it out for you.
Have got lots to share with you if you haven't had a chance to scroll down at my previous posts, but more about that a little later.
Firstly, this week over on Sketch Saturday Jo had given us a wonderful sketch to work with. I hope you like my take on it. The DT have come up with some fab creations. Quite a few of us have gone a bit MS doily punch mad! It's the first time I've used it on a card and I love the delicate effect it gives. Our talented Guest Designer Shary had made such a cute card you need to hop over and check it out. While you are there you will see the fabulous prize kindly offered by this weeks sponsor The Cutting Cafe.

My card has been made using Rosabella Waterlily, a digi-stamp available at Sandra Dry Digi Stamps (that's my first bit of exciting news :o) I have coloured her using Prismas, Sansodor and paper stumps. Her wings have been glittered. For the dots and vertical panel I have used Velacetate (sp?) which is, I think, what they call self adhesive vellum. I didn't want to completely cover the pretty background paper so this was perfect. The ribbon is from my stash mountain and the butterfly and corner stickers are K&Co.
My last bit of news is of the Dare U 2 Digi Stamp, a new challenge blog. My good friend Chris and I have put out a Design Team call for your chance to come and join us for some good, clean digi stamp fun. Details of the DT call are on the blog. The weekly challenges commence Friday 3rd of April. Hope you come and play.....go on....I dare you ;o)
Ciao for now!
Sandra xx

Hope you have a fun time at the demo. Hugs, Chris xxx

This is a lovely card Sandra, love the watery blue paper colours. The little image is again so very cute. Have not got my MS punch, (saving hard) but I love the effect of it. Good luck today, great we can get WOJ at the Craft Barn.
