Papertake Weekly - Sketch Challenge today!

So how is everyone doing? Are you ready for the holidays?? I'm still working on it, and feeling a little better about now, more so than I did a week ago! But do you realize we only have one weekend left before the big day? That really makes me panic. LOL! With today being Tuesday, it's time for another challenge from Papertake Weekly, and this week we're sponsored by Toodles and Binks. It's sketch week with an awesome sketch from Dawny.

I used a cute Kraftin Kimmie stamp (Oliver the Penguin) I got from Stamp and Create. I colored this cutie with copic markers and used some fun fluff on his hat. Then I cut him out and popped him up off the machine stitched mat. A Martha Stewart border punch was used for the scalloped edges, and the snowflakes are from a MS punch as well. The sentiment stamp is included with Oliver the Penguin. DP is Basic Grey and cardstock is Bazzill. I also used some Kaiser half backed green pearls in the center of the snowflakes (which are also popped up). Tied a bow with my bow easy, and this one was done.


Please be sure and join us over at Papertake Weekly to check out what the rest of the talented design team has come up with for the sketch. Then we'd love it if you would join us and link your project up. You might get lucky and win a prize from Toodles and Binks! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! HUGS!
