Happy Friday All!! Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am!! It is suppose to be beautiful weather wise. Woohoo!! No rain!!!!

Today I would like to share a card I made for the upcoming Christmas Holidays. I have seen so many cards with a Christmas theme and I have barely started so today I said I might as well join the masses. I created this card using the Stampin Sister's in Christ Sketch challenge for this week. I just love the simple layout. I added a couple of things to it but I think you can pretty much see I followed the sketch. I used one of my favorite Christmas sets from Our Daily Bread Designs, Angel.

I watercolored the edges of the dress with Baja Breeze on regular white cardstock. The hair, hands, and face were colored with prisma color pencils and gamsol. (Boy do I ever know that I used gamsol. It has an odor and my daughter accidentally knocked the entire thing over. What a mess and stench!!! Oh well accidents happen right. I hope my hubby understands when he walks in the kitchen and smells the odor.)



O.k. .... I was looking at the sketch after I uploaded it and I noticed I made a mistake. I put the bow on the top rather than in the middle. Oops!

Card Recipe:
Stamps- Our Daily Bread Designs- Angel
Paper: SU Ski Slope, Glitter paper (white), Metallic silver, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Silver Baubles, sewing machine, glitter, Vintage Corner Die from Cuttlebug

This is a part of a set that I will be posting on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog on Tuesday. I will provide you with a link on Tuesday as a reminder.

Tomorrow is the last day of the Inky Impressions Blog Hop and the last day for the Blog Hop candy here. If you have not left a comment, on the post or gone on the hop (there is some great prizes along the way), you may want to do so now. Just click on the highlighted "post or gone on the hop" and it will take you there.


I do not think I will be posting tomorrow as I plan to spend whatever time I have blog hopping and visiting your sites instead. Just not enough time to craft, blog and blog hop with life mixed in.

Have a super weekend!! Thanks as always for stopping by and leaving such encouraging comments.
