Debbie's Sketch Challenge #28

So I'm busy reading New Moon and am going to make this short so I can get back to reading. Ok, honestly I'm still in bed as I have this post scheduled and I stayed up WAY too late reading, lol! We had company over all day Saturday and I had a FUNShop on Sunday so I haven't had a lot of time to read!!

For the Christmas Blog, we were issued a challenge by Debbie to use a sketch this week. It's a good one and was a lot of fun to do! So here is the sketch:
and here is my card:

The DP is Heidi Grace from a couple of years ago that I've been holding on to. I used my Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder for the top half of the card. The image is a digital image freebie from Dustin Pike. He has some really cool stuff. In July his images were Christmas theme so had to snag them since I'm making at least one Christmas card a week! I colored the bear with my Copics and added a little crystal Stickles to the candy cane to give it a little shine. Pretty simple card but oh so cute, right?

Well I hope you have a great day! If I don't make it by your blog today just realize that I'm deep in my book. I'll be done soon though - or I'll be going insane!! Thanks so much for stopping by...
