I need more crafting time!...

... don't we all eh? christmas is just such a busy time, I take my hat off to all of you who can still find time to craft and blog as well as being domestic goddesses *bows down with respect*

I'm embarrassed to say that this week I have had to combine both of my design team commitments due to lack of time (& energy) - something which I really didn't want to do if at all possible.

Sketch Saturday is on week #81 and is being sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp where you could win a $25 gift voucher to spend in their store!

Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog is on week #4, and has a, well, 'challenging' colour combo for you all this week, and remember, you get an extra chance to win the monthly prize draw if you use Stampin Up products in your creation ;) The colours are...

The monthly prize this month is a 'Punches Three' stamp set and a scallop square punch, awesome prize eh?!

Here is my card...

I've used SU brilliant blue cardstock for the base, the old olive DSP is from their 'Haiku' collection.
I have added more mustard cardstock 'straps' and added a silver/grey washer and 2 screws as extra elements to work alongside this adorable sugar nellie image, Hamish fixing tractor. Not sure if this stamp is still available anymore actually. I've coloured the image in with ProMarkers, choosing colours that were as close as possible to the SU ones.
I have left the sentiment blank because I will add a number to the box when I know what age to add to it! lol.
