Saturday challenges DT work

It's Saturday, so time for two new challenges from Sketch Saturday & Sweet Stampin.

Firstly, my Sweet Stampin card...

The theme this week is 'vintage' I hope that my card fits the bill as all i've really done is distress everything, although I suppose it could be vintage wine eh?
The stamp used is by Inkadinkado and is called 'Wine and Cheese'
I've used Laura Ashley 'traditional' patterned paper with very vanilla & mellow moss SU cardstock, the sentiment is by SU too, from their 'oval all' stamp set.
The cream lace is from my stash.

This month our sponsor is Quixotic Paperie and you could win £15 to spend in their fab store!

To see more vintage yumminess, please go see what the rest of my sweet stampin teamies have made :)

Now, onto my Sketch Saturday CARDS
I have made 2 this week as I found the sketch quite a quick & easy one to use, and as my back is gradually getting better I was able to sit and create :)

This week we are sponsored by Meljen's Designs,
Fab digis that feature cute and whimsical designs of cuddly critters, adorable kids, and more.
These adorable digi stamps are created by Melissa Jenkins and are available exclusively at Whimsy Stamps.

The Sketch Saturday DT were very kindly given some images to work with,
I've used Bubble Bath Bunny and Firefly Fairy for my cards.
The beautiful papers are from SU, bashful blue patterns pack (bunny card) and a paper pack by My Mind's Eye called 'quite contrary' (fairy card).

You too could get to play with some of Meljen's Designs if you are our winner this week because the prize is FOUR digis of your own choosing from any of Melissa's fab designs!

To see some stunning creations please go see what my friends have made,
their links are in the right sidebar, or you can see them altogether by visiting Sketch Saturday.

Thanks for dropping by, hope you all have a fab weekend xx
