Sketchivus for the Rest of Us...

It is so hot and smoky here in N. Cal that it's hard to imagine it will ever be cold again. But Christmas will be here before you know it and I have less than 10 cards made! Today I made a card based on the sketch currently featured on the Jingle Belles blog Sketching in a Winter Wonderland

The lovely and talented (and traveling buddy extraordinaire) Stephanie created this sketch:

I made a birthday card yesterday using these botanical papers so they were sitting out on my table just daring me to make a card from them. So I did. Take that botanical papers! The sentiment has been in my stash for several years and I'm glad to finally put it to use. It's shiny so it didn't photograph that well.

I am also submitting this to Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Anything goes, as long as it's Christmas.
