A sketch challenge, & an award!

Hello, & happy Wednesday!! The weather is very frightful here in Wisconsin, frigid cold & what a surprise ~ it's snowing. I thought they might close schools today, but I think they are saving that for tomorrow, when the wind chills will be a balmy -20 to -30. Gosh I love winter!

I haven't participated in a challenge on SCS in a while, so I checked out today's sketch challenge. It's a fun one, & I had a hard time deciding which stamp to use. I've gotten so many High Hopes stamps lately & haven't had much time to play!



I finally decided on Albert's gift, a recent release. Isn't he adorable? This image would be perfect for a birthday card, anniversary card, or a get well card. I colored Albert with my trusty Prismas & gamsol, & added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to his wings & the flower centers. The patterned papers are from the Basic Grey Boxer collection, & the dark green is from the DCWV Christmas pack. I added Primas instead of the stars (Rox said we could!!! Really!!) & at the last minute I added the Dew Drops. I apologize for the cruddy picture, that's what happens when I'm in a rush!! I will try to take a better one later!



I don't have time to finish the inside right now because I have to get ready for work, but for me that is a must & I will do it later. I also can now decorate the backs of my cards, because I bought some fun "created by" stamps on Ebay. I will show you those another day :)

Finally, I received this award from Shirley. I'm always so honored when I receive an award!! Check out Shirley's blog HERE, she has some fun stuff!! I am to pass this on to other people, which I will also do another day. Thank you so much Shirley!!

Hope you all have a great day!!! Thanks for visiting :)
