Snowy Sketch

When looking over my entries into Beccy's Place Fifth Annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge I realized that I only missed one day- a sketch challenge. So… I quickly put one together. It has been so much fun to be part of this annual event. I'll surely do it again next year! The mitten background is actually a strip of fabric that was in my sweet mom's quilting stuff. she would have loved seeing it paired with this cute snowball wielding polar bear, which is a favorite stamp from Eureka. I use it often! (The little mittens dangling from the ribbon were fussy-cut from an SU image.)

Wanted to make a card to enter into The Paper Shelter's challenge entitled "Add 3 different Kinds of Embellishments". I free-sketched the dove on the back of white glitter paper, fussy-cut and attached it to the card. His little beak is made with a small scrap of metallic gold. The 3 embellies are ribbon, gold cord and a tag. Embossed an SU sentiment "Peace, Love, Joy" on the tag in silver.

Another card to enter into the Crafty Christmas Collaboration Challenge. This time I CASED a card made by Emily, inspired by her wonderful color scheme and flurry of snowflakes. I printed off a sentiment that I've had in my files for many years. It always blesses my heart! (For more details about the CCC visit
