Sunday Sketch & Stamp #137

Good Morning,

Hope you are all well and ready for the big day!
I've a couple more pressies to get and all my wrapping to do. Every year I say I'll wrap as I get but that never happens! You know what it's like, hide it from preying eyes and it never comes out again, mine usually done in a mad rush on Christmas Eve. Next year it'll be different.

Today there is a new challenge starting over @ Sunday Sketch & Stamp which will run throughout the Christmas/New Year period. That means you have until January 6th to get you entries in & a chance to use your new stash!!!!

Sponsoring us this week is Crafty Ribbons

You can use any past sketch from the challenge blog
I have used Sketch #101 by Marie that I have rotated.

And here's my card

Image - Mistletoe Jasper from DigiStamp Boutique
Colouring medium - Spec's Pro's & Chalk
Papers - HOTP
Sentiment - computer generated

Finishing touches:
Punched snowflakes glittered with a pearl added to the centres
Viva pearls added to the mistletoe berries

Sunday Sketch & Stamp #136

Good Morning,

hope you are all well and keeping yourselves nice & cosy.

Sunday Sketch & Stamp have a new challenge starting today.
Here's my card using Donna's sketch who has sadly stepped down from the DT

This week we have another super sponsor

Who is offering the winner digi's of their choice, hop on over here & check out what's in store.

For my card I have used Molly's Snowman which I printed out several times. I then coloured in the image with Spec's & Pro's & added a little glitter. I cut out an extra bow for Molly's hair and decoupaged the snowman up. The base image was cut out using the out of the box technique

The plain white paper was embossed with a snowflake embossing folder from Cuttlebug. This was matted onto silver mirri card as was the image & sentiment.
