Sketch Saturday # 73......


Good morning everyone!

I keep thinking it's Friday already....... now that's not good, no lie in tomorrow after all!!

I had a ball making this card for the current Sketch Saturday Challenge...... now I did alter things a touch but I think you can still see the original layout somewhere in there, lol! This is just one of those times when the card resembles the picture I started out in my head with, YAY! I think this is my fave Christmas card of all those I've made so far and I do so love Mo's gorgeous image! I saw this sentiment years ago on a card somewhere and stored it in the old brainbox for future use....... 'tis a great phrase to go with this particular image don't you think, hee hee!


I coloured the image with Poly and Koh pencils and added lots of yummy glitter...... hope you can pick up the sparkly flakes! I think the papers are Cosmo Cricket and the snowflake is a Cuttlebug die....... everything else is from my stash.

Right then, back to the paper work for me but I'm sure I'll be able to sneak back on for peek at your work during the working day........

Whooo! Fabbie card hun, and you just gotta love that image - you've really brought it to life. You do make me smile so I guess I'd better not rub it in too much that I do get a lay in on Friday as I've blagged the day off (need it mind, I am seriously challenge challenged, if you see what I mean). Anyway, I ramble - gorgeous card, stunning colouring and love your blog! Hugs, Squirrel xx
