Sunday Sketch & Stamp 18: New Squiggle Stamps!

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today marks the start of Challenge 18 over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp and we have a fab sketch for you by our very talented Barb:

Challenge #18 will be our last of 2009, and as the SS&S DT girls are going to have a well-earned break over the Christmas period, challenge #18 will run for 3 WEEKS.  Therefore, our first challenge of 2010 (challenge #19) will go live on 10th January 2010.

As this is our last challenge of 2009, we have a very special sponsor ... Squiggle Stamps!  Some of you will know that I am on the Squiggle Stamps DT, and so I just had to make a card with one of the brand new and 'not yet released' line of stamps (...which I think are due in the Squiggle Stamps store in January).  They are so new, I don't even know her name yet, LOL!

Sorry for the really poor quality of the photos.  I'm finding it almost impossible to get good lighting at the moment and still get the pics to represent the colours correctly.  Winter is actually my favourite season, as I love it getting dark early and being all warm and cozy in front of the fire, but it's my least favourite time for taking pics of my cards, LOL!

As I said, you have 3 WEEKS to enter this challenge, so the SS&S girls and I will see you on the 10th January for our first challenge of 2010 (...although this is not my last post of 2009!!).
