Winter Wishes

Is it just me or does the weekend zoom by way too fast?!?! Although it was FREEZING here in Kansas this weekend, it allowed me to stay indoors and get some much needed things accomplished. Now to just keep that momentum going as I have some craft shows, FUNShops and Vendor crops coming up!

Every Monday I share a Christmas card. This week Maria challenged us with a sketch. I received a new stamp set from The Angel Company, Winter Flurries and I knew that this sketch would be perfect for it. Here is the fabulous sketch from Maria:


and here is my card:

The paper is some left over Karen Foster paper. The cardstock is Scarlet from TAC. Each pack has 25 sheets and comes in 8.5x11 or 12x12 size. It's a wonderful cardstock that I use a lot! The snowflake is left over from a Jolee's package. The sentiment is from Stampendous. I colored the penguin's scarf & the swirls using my Niji Water Brush and Aquacolor Crayons. If you've been frustrated by your water brush (I know I was) you won't with the Niji - it is FABULOUS!!! Finally I have a brush where I can actually control the water flow!

Check out the other design team members blogs to see their wonderful interpretation of the sketch. That's it for me today. Abby is out of school and my BF from college is supposed to be stopping by on her way back home. Which means I need to get off the computer and clean the house - quick :o) Have a great day!!
