Tuesday Morning Sketches #25

Good Morning! Thanks for joining for another sketch challenge! I am so happy that you're here. I know that many of you are getting ready for Christmas gatherings but I wanted to post a challenge anyway, just in case you got some new stamps for Christmas that you want to play with.

So here's the sketch we're working with this week:

And once again, my design team did a fantastic job with their interpretations.

First up we have Theresa - who did an amazing job with scrapbook page layouts! The photos are of my children playing out in the snow taken in 2005. I am thrilled that Theresa took my challenge to create a page layout with the sketch so you can see the versatility I intend for my sketches to have. The first one is a 6x6 to display a single photo and the 2nd is an 8x8 for multiple photos, but still staying true to the sketch. Fabulous!!

This super cute card is from Chupa and she did an absolutely amazing coloring job and I love the ribbon over the snowflake paper.

And Joni always gives her very best! I love the colors in this card and the dimension she added to the focal image. I love the snowflakes, too.

And finally my card. My daughter helped me with the colors. She said to make it pink and then she rummaged through my scraps and decided that Mellow Moss would be the perfect complimenting color. I think she was right.

I also want to thank Elizabeth of Soft Pencil for providing me and my team with these sweet images to play with. Now it's your turn! Go create a card, layout or project with the sketch and then come back here to link it up. And please leave comments for team - they are fabulous and they deserve a little love.

On behalf of myself and my team, we wish you a very Merry Christmas that is filled with love, family and great blessing. May you always carry the Spirit of the Season with you throughout the year.

** This challenge is now closed. We'll see you tomorrow for the winner announcement. Thank you to everyone who participated! **
