Penny Black Saturday #132 & Sweet Stop Sketch #87!

Hello everyone! Well I'm slightly better than last week, at least I'm posting on the day of the challenges! I'm a bit snowed in today (yey! A guilt free snow day!!) so I might try to get ahead with some future DT cards. But first for today's post is this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge, the last of 2010 and my last Christmas card of the year (or the first in the pile for next year!). This week we have A Recipe for you, 3 patterned papers, 1 ribbon and 1 charm, and there is an adorable stamp up for grabs.
I have combined this with a few other challenges; Friday Sketchers - this sketch, Stamp with Fun - Christmas, Cupcake Craft - Non traditional Christmas, Stamp Something - a tag or pocket and ABC Christmas Challenge - Z for Zero time left! (any previous challenge, I've gone for F is for Frosty! with the optional extra of snow). I'm not sure if it shows but I've covered the little charm with glitter and glittered the flower soft and little stars for some extra glitz! I hope you like it!

Colouring - Copics, Glamour Dust & 'Polar White' Flower Soft
Papers, tag & stars - My Minds Eye 'Colourful Christmas'
Sentiment - Paula Pascual
Gems, brad, charm & ribbon - stash

And onto this weeks Sweet Stop Sketch, and it's prize time again so we have a sketch with a spin - use Stitching on your card, real or faux is fine, I've gone for faux and I thought this cute little dress and button would match it. This isn't the last challenge from us, we will still have a challenge on Christmas day for all you folks who have a nice little break. I have also entered this into a couple of other challenges; the Basic Grey Challenge - A Recipe, 4 different kinds of embellishments (mine are gems, ribbon, button and a flower), 3 patterned papers and 1 or 2 images and/or sentiments and this weeks
Allsorts which is Free and easy - anything goes!
Thanks for looking, I'll be back on Christmas Day with my last ever DT card for the Sweet Stop Sketch as my June to December DT post is coming to an end :-( Enjoy the lead up to Christmas! See ya soon!
