Wow, three posts in one day! i think that must be a record for me :)

For this design i chose to use the lovely sketch by Jacqueline over at Friday Sketchers.

I have a 'scraps' box of card that i pop bits and pieces into when i have been using my Cricut machine, so that when i need a shape or something, i look in there first....and this is where i found my oval!

I used some Adirondack ink in Lettuce and Pesto, and a Dove brush to colour my oval. I then stamped this little tree image from Paper Inspirations with a Colorbox cats eye in dark brown and added some Platinum Stickles for a bit of sparkle.
The papers i've used are Basic Grey 'figgy pudding', gems are Kanban 'Bling' and i also found this little Making Memories page pebble in amongst my Christmas stuff! The ribbons and jumbo brad are from stash.

My Christmas card box is building up quite nicely now! thanks to all you lovely ladies that provide us with all these fab sketches and challenges to work makes it all more fun :)

Thanks for your time today......i do appreciate your visits, and if you like what you see, then leave me a note so i can come and visit you too! Have a great Friday! and i'll see you soon ;-D
