The Sweet Stop - Sketch #139



Hello and Merry Christmas! I know I've been scarce this month and I apologize. It's that most wonderful time of the year where we are all busy, busy, busy! I have been crafting, baking, shopping, and wrapping like a mad woman all month! And now it's crunch time! There is going to be a marathon baking and crafting session going on tonight! But before I dive head first into the holiday madness, I wanted to share a card I made today. It was a request from a co-worker for his wife, and I have to say I was pleased with the end result. Some days you've got mojo, others not so much! lol Today was a mojo day!

I used the sketch #139 from The Sweet Stop, but apparently they already picked their featured cards for the challenge. I'm not sure why they would do so before the challenge closes, but it's the holidays so I'll cut them some slack! :) I rotated the sketch to accommodate my image and added a few extra embellishments to give it my own personal character. My image is from a set by My Favorite Things, called Santa Baby. I love their Who's That Girl line! I paper pieced the clothes on Santa and his holiday honey. I also used bits of cotton ball on Santa's beard and "fur" trim. The rest is colored with Copics. Paper are from an old retired Stampin' Up pack. The rest of the goodies are from my stash. I've been infatuated with these Tim Holtz muse tokens lately!

Despite being over-tired I am really looking forward to this weekend! IF I can get through the next 20 hours of holiday prep first, that is! lol Thanks for stopping by! I did make two other cards this week so I'll try to get those posted shortly as well.

May your merry be very!

Regan this a fabulous! Love the paper piecing. And here I am thinking cotton balls were for nail polish removal! Love the doily, the baker's twine, the sheer ribbon, and of course the flowers...can't forget the flowers. TFS
