Saturday Sketch Challenge 12/26

Oh what a wonderful WHITE CHRISTMAS we had!!!! The first real one I have ever seen in Texas and only the second in my life! We've had snow flurries and dusting but never anything like this. We even built a Snowman in our front yard. It was a really fun day with family in and out of the house. So, my card is a tribute to our Snow Day! You can see the sketch over and UDI and check out what the rest of the Design Team has done. Our Surprise for this sketch was to use our favorite colors. My favorite color is Yellow but I didn't want yellow snow, don't ya know, so I used my second favorite, blue!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Holiday Lounge Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Snowflake punch, Ice rhinestone brads
Have a wonderful week!!!!!

I got a great box of goodies from Mr. Brown this afternoon and had to play with them for today's challenge. The designer paper and punch are a preview of the upcoming Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Bration which start January 4th!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful week and an awesome Christmas Day. I know that many of us are short on funds but last night at our Choir Christmas Party one of our members did a recital of Dr. Suess' "The Grinch" and it reminded me that we must all be like the Who's in Whoville and keep Christmas in our hearts no matter if there are presents under the tree or even Christmas Decorations. Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas!!! See you next week!
