Winter Wishes! Holiday Card Number 3 using
Unscripted Sketches #141

Happy Monday Morning!!! Welcome to my weekly Sketch-it Saturday with Unscripted Sketches creation. Doing my new found crafty morning ritual before heading off to work. I am sharing this "Winter Wishes" card - a fun and festive card with some adorable characters.

Using this week's sketch #141, I started with the leftover background DCVW paper from last weeks creation...remember my "ONE TOUCH" rule. This wintery white/creme paper is speckled with a flurry of glittery snowflakes. Now for the elements. The snow base is torn textured cardstock rubbed with shimmer dewdrop inks. The penguin from this adorable set of holiday gift tags that I have been hoarding in my craft stash. I removed the silver cord from his hat. The snowflake is leftover from another project layered over an MS snowflake punch I scored on clearance two weeks ago. I finished the card off with these super cute Sticko stickers that have six different glittery snowglobes epoxys, complete with phrases and colorful snowflakes. I put a "Let it Snow" sticker in center of snowflake. I layered snowman snowglobe {so silly} over the penguin and buried it's base in the layered snow, then overlapped the snowflake which covers the "to...from..." on the penguin's belly. This is finished off with the colorful snowflake to cover up the hole in the hat and the rest randomly sprinkled about. I just love this card!!! It is so fun : )

What is Sketch it Saturdays at Unscripted Sketches? Every Saturday morning a new sketch is posted for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it… create a card, a scrapbook page, a wall hanging, digital, paper, fabric, paint, anything your imagination comes up with! There is no right or wrong way, as long as you are using the Unscripted sketch as the inspiration for your creation! And everyone is invited to join in the fun...and post your creation on their page for all the world to see!

Wow it's the middle of January already and less than two weeks until CHA!!! I'm so glad my day job is sooooo busy to help qualm my anxiety of flying across country alone and my sheer excitement and delight to meet up with my new creative friends. Coming up on Jan. 20th I will have a guest post over at the Amazing Mold Putty Blog; and my second installment of Terri Sproul's 2012 Festive Friday Bloghop will be Jan. 27th. I have been doing something creative and crafty each day and I'm closing in on 21 I will officially have a new HABIT added to my daily routine. YAY! Hope you all have a wonderfully creative week : ) Sb
