Graphicat Sketches December Challenge

Aaaannnd, I'm back! Here is another Christmas card I made this week, featuring Spritz from Saturated Canary! Isn't he adorable?!?! I recently discovered his fabulous creator, Krista Smith, and have already amassed a lovely little collection of her whimsical digital images! This card went to my son's day care provider along with an itunes gift card and a handmade ornament.

I am entering it for the December challenge over at Graphicat Sketches. We were challenged to pick any of their past sketches to work with this month. And get this: The prize is a guest designer spot! How fabulous is that? This is my second entry as I would love to have a go at that! The sketch I used is shown above. I couldn't figure out what month it was from and it's just labeled Sketch 2 so we'll go with that. I have a thing for doilies and muse tickets this week! All items are from my stash. Designer paper is once again from a retired Stampin' Up holiday pack. I've added some Stickles to Spritz's wings and my Clear Star pen gives the icicle border punch a little sparkle too.

Before it gets any later I must go get started on this holiday To Do List. I am running on only 3 hours of sleep and I have another long night ahead of me. Wrapping, baking, and crafting all need to get accomplished before I can close these eyes. I hope you are done with your holiday preparations and can relax and enjoy, but if you are like me and are in panic mode, take a minute, breathe, grab an egg nog or a peppermint hot chocolate, put on some Christmas music and have at it! And good luck getting everything done!

Wishing you all the magic that Christmas brings!

I just had to stop and take a break and leave you some encouraging words. I hope you get everything done and get some sleep so you can enjoy Christmas. I am way too far behind on my crafting to ever get caught up. This year has flown by so fast and 2012 is right around the corner. I am going to at least try to get my Christmas card finished that I have already started, but that may not happen. I wish you and your family a VERY Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to come.
I love this sweet little boy!! I have him colored with pencils on kraft paper and almost finished. Did I mention I've had him almost finished for over 3 weeks. I know I an so behind.. I told you I was.

The digi is the cutest. Regan this is another fabulous card. I like all the elements. Did you know I have a weakness for doilies? Yep. I just love 'em. Love the Martha Stewart edge punch and the use of the Nestabilities for the sentiment. This is another winner! TFS
