From our home to yours

I love this image from Pollycraft 
and it's available to download now for only 49p!!!
what a bargain! a must for your christmas collection, especially if you have to post your cards.

My card uses this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday

I have used these lovely papers from HOTP called 'Forever Christmas Cards'
the only exception is the plain dark green piece which is by SU (always artichoke) and the pale beige scrap pieces i've used for matting.
I coloured the image with my promarkers, the door is coloured with 'ruby' and shaded with 'cool grey 5', blended over top with the ruby pen again. Got it to match the spotty paper pretty good :)
I don't have a red door on my own home, but my daughters dolls house does! :)
The stripy paper has been punched on one side but has been paper pricked on the other 3 then a white gel pen was dragged through the holes to create a faux stitched look.

This week we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish, who are awarding the winner of our challenge this week with a choice of either 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 paper pack :)
Actually everyone's a winner, because throughout October, they have a 35% discount offer to honour breast cancer awareness month.

Please stop by the blog to see the fabulous work by our Guest Designer for October, Donna, and of course by The Saturdays, lots of inspiration there!
