Sketch Frenzy Friday 120911

Happy Friday again all. Man, don't the weeks go by fast this time of year? We've hit Winter this week! Snow last Saturday (about 3 inches) and bitter cold. A little warmer today (hit freezing this afternoon) but the chance for snow is back in the forecast :( I like to look at it, but not be out in it!!

Anyway, as you know Friday means another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge and mini hop. My brain is on snow and Christmas, so that is what you get!! Here is my card

based on this sketch by Maria Vanderform.

This sketch was a bit of a challenge to me, but probably because I haven't been stamping. No creative juices flowing!! I will get back to it-eventually!!

My card base is Cherry Cobbler. The background plaid print in Marina Mist & Cherry Cobbler is from the Frostwood Lodge DSP pack. I stamped the snowman from Snow Much Fun in Stazon Black on Shimmery White and added Marina Mist & Cherry Cobbler to him with a blender pen. And just a touch of Basic Gray for shadows. He is very tall so this layer is almost as tall as the card front! Not my ideal choice of size, but what it has to be for him to fit!! The saying is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and punched with the Modern Label punch. That is layered onto a Punch Window Modern Label cut with the Big Shot from Cherry Cobbler. I added Marina Mist brads on each side and attached with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Continue on our tour by clicking HERE to see what Kim has created this week.

I hope to be back to regular stamping soon! My house is decorated, shopping is progressing, and cards are started. Too bad there are so many other things that require my attention :) Have a GREAT weekend all!!
