A Sketch Challenge!
Here's the card I came up for this week:

(Click To Enlarge)
Yep - I know.....why the heck a snowman?! The temps have been record-breakers, and here I am making a snowman card! lol! Well, let me tell you........I really sort of missed the snowy season (but only a tiny bit!). I do like the snowman images on cards, and not having any snow to speak of this year, has left my stash without any snowmen, too!'s one!
My card features Snowman Skates image by Bugaboo Stamps.
I'm trying to use up my gigantic scrap pile, so all of my papers are scraps. I used up some Ric-Rac pieces, a couple of rhinestones, and a Sizzlit die cut for my sentiment, which I adorned with some Stickles.

And here's the sketch to follow! :0)

So, show us what you can do with this great sketch! Whip up your project (it can be a card, scrapbook page.....whatever, so long as we can see the sketch. You can even flip it, if you'd like!) and head on over to enter it into the Mr. Linky!

By entering your project, you could win up to SEVEN Bugaboo images!
Head on over to Catch the Bug to play along!

  1. Cheryl your card is adorable! Thanks for playing along with us at CSAYL this week!

  2. The blues and purples can't help but cool me down. Not much of a winter so this card was a bit of fun to look at. Very cute!!!

  3. Darling card love the blue and purples together. Great to get a Christmas card done early. I am so looking for summer that mine seem to be summer/spring cards. We have such cold/wet weather Pacific NW. I love all the detail on the card the stickles on the burr looks great.

  4. What a great way to follow a recipe! Thanks for joining in the fun at CSAYL :>) Your card is so happy and cheerful. I for one am glad that there was so little snow this year, but it would have been fun to make at least 1 real snowman!
