Papertake Weekly - it's sketch week!

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a wonderful start to the new week. I am astounded at the fact that it's the last week in October! Oh my goodness....the Holidays are right around the corner! So with that little bit of stress added to my plate, it's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly!  I would find it very hard to believe if you've never used one of Dawny's fabulous sketches before! She's the QUEEN of sketches! And I love them! As it's the last Tuesday of the month, that means we are sponsored by none other than Simon Says Stamp!!

Have you seen the new Sweet Christmas Dreams Magnolia stamps yet? They are available right now over at Magnolia-licious!!  Diana has the best selection of Magnolia images and has the best service around! So do yourself a favor and hurry over there to grab your favorites before they're sold out! Oh my goodness, the entire collection is FABULOUS! This particular little cutie pie is #3058 Sweet Christmas Tilda, and she's available in both regular AND the mini version as well!!!  I think she could be used for any time of the year, not just for Christmas. I love the stamps that are really versatile that way.  I've perched her on top of the candy cane from last year's Christmas images, #1409 Peppermint, which is also available in the mini version. The sentiment is #723 Sweet Christmas Dreams.  And YIKES!!! This card was completely finished, I only had one snowflake left to add. So I'm inking the edges of the snowflake with my little Cat's Eye chalk ink pad, and what happens but it slips right out of my hand and lands right on top of Tilda's face!!!!!!!! YIKES! At the time, I didn't think it left any mark. But I can see the ever so fine line left behind from it now! Guess she will have to be replaced.

I've colored them both with Copic markers and then fussy cut them out and popped them on top of a circle cut with Nesties. I've framed the circle with lace I got while visiting the most amazing sister in the world . That gorgeous paper is by Pion and was sent to me from my friend Christina!! Thanks so much, Christina!! I've been just chomping at the bits to be able to use it, and I finally made my first Christmas card of the season. It's sooooo luxurious!!! It's matted with Bazzil cardstock and then machine stitched. I also added a few Martha Stewart snowflakes centered with a tiny little heart.

So that's it for me today! I hope you have time to pop over to Papertake Weekly and check out all the amazing work from my Design Team sisters! Then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon!
