Merry, Merry!..

Hi All! And a very Happy Saturday to you!  Hope you all had a fantastic week! It's been a busy but fun one for me.. Well, today I'm back with another Super Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge. Yay! This week's sketch comes with a fun Spin, which means there's a Fabulous prize up for grabs to one very lucky winner!  Our spin is "starstruck" So make sure to incorporate that into your card/creation and join in the fun!...8-)  I've been really wanting to ink up my new Penny Black Christmas stamps, and Korin's Awesome sketch was just perfect for what I had in mind! Anyway, without further delay.... Here is the Sweet Stop Sketch #126  for this week:

And here's my take on it... Pretty much the only tiny tweek this time is I put my sentiment onto a cute little punched tag instead of directly onto my BG panel.. 8-)

I stamped my Sweet little Best Day Ever image onto Flourishes Classic White and did a little masking and stamped my Adorable Holly Jolly image too.  I colored up my Cute little Christmas Hedggies with my trusty Copics, and added a bit of shading with Antique Linen Distress ink and a touch of stickles to their cute little star ornaments and the snow. I cut them out and matted them up using my Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals Nesties sets and then popped them up with a few dimensionals. For my Mats and BG layers I chose a combination of dp's from MME, Fancy Pants and some forest green CS from my stash. My Impression Obsession Sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto a little punched tag and then shaded up with a little more Antique Linen Distress Ink. To finish it all up, I added some ribbon from my stash, a few sweet adhesive pearls, a fun star button I made up with a couple die cut stars layered and coated with stickles and glossy accents and tied it up with some yummy bakers twine from MAD Stamper Finds.8-)
I sure hope you can play along with us at The Sweet Stop!  Can't wait to see what you all come up with for  this weeks sketch with a spin! And as always, please, make sure to stop by and take a peek at the Adorable Creations the rest of the Sweet Stop Sugar Babies have whipped up for your inspiration! 8-) 

Hope you all have a Fabulous weekend & thanks so much for visiting! 8-)
