Friday Sketchers #58 - cool when it's hot!


Yesterday must have been the hottest day of the year so far, so when I saw the fabulous sketch over at this week's Friday Sketchers #58, what did I do ?? That's right ... I made a Christmas card! Not sure why ... the sketch just kinda struck me that way!

I used one or two new items from my stash ... I have had the cute hedgie for some time but not inked him up until now; and last week I bought a new MS embossed snowflake punch, as I figured if I got in early I could get one before the Christmas rush lol!

Recipe:
Main image: Penny Black "Fur collared", watercoloured and decorated with diamond Stickles;
Sentiment: Stamps Away;
Papers: BasicGrey "Wassail";
Supplies: flowers and star from Prima Christmas bubble; charm from Dolls Made Up; fancy edging punched with Martha Stewart "embossed snowflake" edge punch.

Hope you're enjoying the fab weather - take care in the heat!
