Sketch Saturday #117: Ready, Steady, DUCK!

Happy Saturday bloggers!

This week over at Sketch Saturday we have another fab sketch by our wonderful leader Jo, and this week we are being sponsored by Digital Delights who are offering a $10 gift certificate to one lucky entrant!

The SS design team were given some of the fabulous new August release images to play with this week (thank you Digital Delights!) - Castle, Augustus the Dragon, Princess Shona and Sparky the Knight!  Did you know that you can also buy coloured version of these digi stamps for the same price?  Perfect for when you haven't got the time to spend colouring!

However, for my DT card this week I have used the adorable and slightly cheeky "Ready, Set, Duck" stamp from the Snickerdoodle Kids range by Crissy Armstrong over at Whimsy Stamps, as I want to get a head start on my Christmas cards.  And the best thing is that you can buy this stamp right now for only $5.25 as Whimsy Stamps are currently holding a 25% OFF EVERYTHING* SALE!!!!!!  (*excluding gift certificate).

I pulled out some of last year's MME Colorful Christmas paper and paired it with some Core'dinations cardstock.  The small snowflakes were hand-punched with a Woodware punch, and the large snowflake was created with a Spellbinders die both from glittered card.  And of course I had to add some Stickles for extra Christmas sparkle:

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Ooh La La Challenge #60 - Spots and Dots
2. ASFOS #117 - Christmas in August
3. Creative Card Crew - Sparkle & Shine
4. My Time to Craft Challenge #103 - Glitter and Glitz

Have a fab weekend folks, whatever you're doing!  We're off at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning for a mini holiday to Chester.  Why Chester?  Well, anyone that knows our daughter knows she's animal mad, with a particular love for big cats, and so we're making one of her dreams come true by going to see a cheetah 'in the flesh' at Chester Zoo.  We've planned to return to Bristol on Wednesday, but I've got my Sparkle Creations post scheduled for Tuesday, so hopefully Mr Blogger will play nice as we're not taking the laptop with us!!

Thanks for popping by!
