It's Sketchy!!

Happy Thursday everyone! The week is almost done and I'm behind on my to-do list, what else is new right. The laundry is now screaming at me and I'm trying to ignore it, ha ha! I mean come on, toss the dice--laundry or stampin'--Stampin wins everytime, lol! Anywho, I'll keep this short for ya today. I also didn't get around to the dimensions for the hot-cocoa box, but I will have that up tomorrow for ya'll, ok!

Both of my cards today feature this weeks sketch challenge #198 over on SCS. This first card uses one of my new Rachelle Anne Miller Xmas stamps (I got 5 new ones, yippee) that I got from 7 Kids College Fund. I think this teddy bear is just too stinkin' cute. I colored the image with Copics basing all my colors on my fave holiday dp paper from My Minds Eye "Be Merry"--such cute,fun colors! The "joy" sentiment is a rub-on and I embossed the bg with one of my Xmas CB folders. I added a couple of punched snowflakes to the corners w/ some dew drop centers.

This second card uses the same sketch but instead of circles I wanted to use squares to emulate a fireplace. I love this lil' Changito monkey--I have alot of his stamps by Stampendous but I never seem to get to use them(have to fix that). I think the sentiment on this stamp is so funny--lovee it. All the dp is from Memory Box, ribbon is from PTI and the poinsettia/holly are Primas.

Hope you like my two takes on the sketch--they were fun to do. By the way, Paper Trey Ink released all their new Xmas stamps and goodies yesterday and oh my they're lovely--I won't tell you how much I spent cuz' its embarassing. But I'm justifying the hundreds because I'm making a good portion of my Xmas presents this year, lol!! Check 'em out if you get a chance--you'll likee them too! I'll see ya back here tomorrow--I've got some news to share with you all :)

hugz,
Suzanne
