Our Creative Corner ~ Sketch Challenge

Had a good day my DT work finished and a couple of cards made! one of which was another Christmas Card following the current sketch over at OCC. Such a simple elegant sketch which allows for many possibilities with the design..............just the sort of sketch i like :)
If like me you enjoy sketch challenges, you may wish to try my current sketch over at Carol's Sketch Fun.........................

I've kept my card very simple to allow the beauty of the image to shine through, i adore this stamp and use it each year for many of my Christmas cards.

Image.... Paper Inspirations 'Santa & Baby portrait'
inked with Versafine 'onyx black'
Papers.... Basic Grey 'Wassail'
Sentiment.... HOTP
Circle brads.... Basic Grey
satin ribbon & tree brad from stash

It is a wonderful sunny warm day here in Bedford, so i will be spending the rest of the day relaxing and enjoying the warmth...................although my gorgeous Granddaughter is here today so i really don't get to sit still for many minutes!! but it's all good fun :)

I will be posting some Blog Candy this evening for passing 30,000 hits so you may wish to check back to leave your entry! ............... Have a great Sunday ;-D
