Sketch Saturday does Christmas in August


I've not been to work today as I've not been too well with stomach ache - pottered lazily around the house for most of the day, but later on I tried to make a card to take my mind off it (it didn't work lol!!)


I have made this card using the fab sketch for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge #64.

It's also good for me that there are so many Christmas challenges around at the moment, as I'm very behind with my Christmas cards. There are also some fabulous prizes on offer right now! I'd like to enter this card for the following:

Christmas in August - this is the theme over at Our Creative Corner, Creative Card Crew #24, Simon Says Stamp and Dutch Dare #58

Papertake Weekly - this week they have reached their 100th challenge (well done ladies!) so have challenged us to take your pick from the previous 99 challenges - I have chosen Let It Snow... Let It Snow... Let it Snow (17/11/2008).

Pollycraft #22 - Favourite things ... I have used a Penny Black image - PB's are of course my all time favourites (as you will see all too well in my labels list!) , plus my nesties which are something else I can't manage without!

Pile It On #11 - oh boy! ... well it is blue and it's a snowman lol!
Woo hoo - that's 8 altogether!!

Recipe:
Main image: Penny Black (sorry don't know what it's called as it was an RAK) - coloured with watercolour pencils and decorated with diamond Stickles;
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards "Oh My Words!";
Supplies: snowflake papers, pearlised and holographic card, organza snowflake ribbon - all from my stash; sparkly brads by Doodlebug;
Tools: martha Stewart embossed snowflake edge punch; small snowflakes die cut using Cuttlebug snowflakes die.

Off to put my feet up now - hoping I feel a bit better tomorrow!
