Inspirational Card Sketch #44

Only a couple more until Turkey Day and then the Christmas madness begins. Do you have all your shopping done or are you dashing through the malls Dec. 24th like my DH? To get you into the shopping mood I thought I would color up this delightfully cute Anya from The Greeting Farm's Xmas Sweeties set. This week's ICS sketch #44 worked really well to showcase the Merry Merry paper also from The Greeting Farm and the image. For this card I colored Anya up with my copics and added some Martha Stewart white flocking to the trim...I can't stop feeling this card. I pulled out some more of my dingle ball ribbon to help tie in the fuzzy trim. See that watermark fro the holidays? I read about it over at Danni's blog that she got it from Karen Giron and for a whole $2. Can't beat that! Thanks Danni and Karen now my cards are ready for the holidays. Please go and visit the rest of the wonderfully talented ISC DT girls for some more inpiration on this week's sketch. Thanks for stopping by today.

Too cute for words Mary!! And you know you cracked me up with that dingle ball ribbon line! LOL We all know what you were really thinking! hahahaha! I've lurked and lurked on Karen's website deciding whether I need a new watermark or not, but now I think you've convinced me! :) She has great sketch challenges every Sunday too.

Super cute, Mary!! And thanks for the reminder about that awesome TGF paper! I have been kind of a glutton with Holiday paper over the last several weeks and have forgotten some of the great stuff I already have! You have shown it off so nicely! :-)Traci
