I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

A Jolly Hello

Happy Saturday stampers,

I had a very busy and somewhat stressful work week and I for one am so happy it's the weekend! After doing some morning chores, I decided it was time to relax and do some stamping. Looking through my favorite sketch challenges I noticed that Linda has a fun one over at Freshly Made Sketches this week. Using her sketch and this week's colors from Color Throwdown, I came up with this Holiday card. In addition to these challenges, Merry Monday's challenge this week is to use plaid.

Rudolf and his friend Comet are stamped in Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copics. I used a scrap of water color paper and brushed water and a Zig Marker in Turquoise Green over it to make the panel, then when it was dry I cut out the trees. For the bottom sketch element, I used a piece of Lawn Fawn Winter plaid paper and rounded the corners. These elements are layered onto a piece of SU Pool Party paper embossed with the TE Falling Snow EF. The card base is also SU Pool Party.

The inside of the card uses images from the same set, but the greeting is from MFT Jingle All the Way set.

I'll see you back here tomorrow for another fun Paper Players challenge. You'll love it!

Thanks for looking in today,
