A Pleasure and an Honor...

Hello! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I sure did, but more on that another day...

If you've been reading my blog for a bit, you'll know that I play along with Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge blog. Well today, I have the honor of being the Guest Designer!! I was so surprised when I received the e-mail! I was given a sketch challenge and it is my pleasure to be able to share it with you now.

Peggy's Sketch.

My Card.




I used a digital image from Stampin Up! I colored it with Copic markers, die cut it with oval Nesties and sponged on a bit of Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress ink. I accented the little bells with some of that yummy glitter from Martha Stewart and for the holly berries, I added some Twinkles from Taylored Expressions. The card stock and ribbon are GinaK Designs, the buttons are Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is by Memory Box, purchased from Ellen Hutson's online store.

I hope you pop over to the Challenge blog and play along!

Thank you so much for dropping by...

Blessings~

This is so pretty Barb. I love the image.

BTW, I just saw a couple of days ago that the email I drafted to thank you for those stamped images and card you sent me was still sitting in my draft box. Not sure why it didn't send. Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness.
