Warm Winter Wishes!

Hi All! Hope you have all been having a Wonderful week! Well it's Saturday and you know what that means... It's time for the last Fabulous Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge of 2011, Miss Korin is giving us the rest of the Month of December off so we can concentrate on enjoying Christmas with our loved ones. 8-) And as this is the Third Saturday of the month, we have a fun Spin too, which means there's an Awesome prize up for grabs to one very lucky winner! 8-) Our spin this time is "Chipboard"  How easy peasy is that huh?.. 8-)  See so there's no reason not to play along this week!  So Without further delay, Here's my take on Miss Korin's Awesome Sketch! 8-) 

I saw this little Cutie Patootie at Robyn's Fetish and couldn't help snatching him up, he just makes me chuckle, He's so Darling on his little sled! 8-)  Well, I printed him out onto Flourishes Classic White and colored him up with my trusty Copics. I added a few emboss resist  Flourishes snowflakes.. First I embossed my snowflakes with White EP and then very lightly sponged on a bit of Tumbled Glass Distress inks over top and created my Sweet snowy scene. cut him out, matted him up and embossed the edges with the help of my Score Pal for a nice clean look and popped him up with a few dimensionals. For my Mats and BG layers I chose a combinations of kraft CS from my stash and dp's from Echo Park's Seasons Greeting pack. I printed out my digi sentiment onto some white CS from my stash and then mounted it onto a Chipboard banner and aded a touch of shading with more Tumbled Glass Distress ink. To finish it all up, I added a bit of Ribbon from my stash, a touch of Stardust Stickles here and there,  a fun little die-namic snowflakes topped with a cute little button, all tied up with some Yummy Bakers twine from MAD Stamper Finds. 8-)
And Here's Miss Korin's Fabulous Sketch!
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 our last sketch of the year.  And as always, please, make sure to stop by and take a peek at the Fabulous creations the rest of the Sweet Stop Sugar Babies have whipped up for your inspiration.
