Maria's Sketch Challenge #34

Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend - so glad you've stopped by my blog! I'm happy to report that I allowed myself some time this weekend to create and I feel MUCH better!! I still have a lot to do - but won't that always be the case!?! Any who, on to Monday morning Christmas challenge. This week, Maria gave us a sketch to use. Gotta love sketches and Maria's are always so fun!

I just got a whole bunch of new stamp sets from TAC - one of the perks of winning a contest is getting a nice gift certificate for FREE goodies! I knew that I wanted to use the new set, Holiday Girls for my card.


Isn't that my Abby?!?! Seriously, how CA-UTE is that! There are even Holiday Boys and they are just as cute :o) The sentiment is also a TAC stamp set, Thinking of you. I colored using my Copics - I think I'm getting a little more comfortable with them. I usually outline my image in grey or light blue but have seen others use yellow and orange so I thought why not try something different. Not sure I'll use green too often but I think it works! The flower is a Quickutz die that I cut 3 times and adhered with a rhinestone brad.

To see more wonderful Christmas cards using this sketch visit the design team blogs located on the right hand side of my blog. Or you can visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year blog and see them all as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
