Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge Week #19 - Sketch Challenge

Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas! Wait a minute, the weather is beautiful....don't run away!!! - it's time to get started on your Christmas Cards! Sparkle's Challenge this week is a sketch - did I ever tell you how much I love sketches - pull out the papers, find an image that fits and voila! Hope you'll join us this week! I finally used my previously un-inked "Santa's List" set from CTMH for this one. Santa & the tree fit perfectly in my circle. I am also going to enter this over at Stamp Something where the challenge is stitching and they have a great prize from Paper Jewels!

I hope your weekend was great! My boys and I had a fantastic afternoon of sun & fresh air hiking and playing at a couple of local parks. I'll be back soon as I have a few fun cards to share - though I have to wait to show you one of them as it's for the challenge at Paper Sundaes next week.

What I used:

stamps: CTMH - Santa's List & Merry Little Chirstmas (sentiemnt)

  1. Great take on the sketch, love your papers and that cute little Santa.

  2. Nice card. You could slow down on the Christmas card thing....I am only saying that because I haven't started and I am jealous that you have.

    Love, Me

  3. love the rich colors and design of this - great card :D

  4. Love this... the colors are so vibrant and the image and paper you chose are perfect!

  5. Great card, love that sketch! Was supposed to have the day off to craft, spent it on the couch with a clingy 4 year old not well enough to go to daycare...but I got 8 loads of laundry done before my washer packed it in...perhaps I'll need to "do laundry" at your house later in the week...**wink**wink** :)


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
