Laura's sketch.....

Today is the 15th of the month, which means another Little Paper Shop challenge!

This month Laura had the honours, and chose to challenge us with a sketch, a wonderful sketch which I just loved.

Sometimes I have a block about sketches, I don't know why, it just happens. Truth be known, sometimes I have a block about a lot of things.........but no matter.......

This was Laura's sketch - isn't it great?!

and here is my interpretation of her sketch.

I used the Little Paper Shop stamp set called "A Dream" and kind of added a few things to the sketch. I can do that if I want. oh yes I can..........

The designer paper is K & Company Brenda Walton Peppermint Twist Christmas pack and has beautiful pinks and greens and turquoises-s-s-s-s within the designs, as you can see.

Since the paper in the 12 x 12 paper pack is double sided, there are gorgeous designs included on the backside that are not just Christmas oriented, so you can use this paper year round! Very cool (and pretty!!)

The base of my card and the ribbon is Papertrey Ink Spring Moss. I punched out a little Martha Stewart butterfly and added a bit of a Hero Arts jewel to make her feel special and pretty!

A few little Autumn Leaves buttons topped off with some yarn (because I can't find the thin jute anywhere that I shop - hubby says that means there is none available anywhere in the world) finished off this card perfectly!!

We had our first celebration of a family Christmas yesterday at my mother-in-law's home, and just like I thought, we came home perfectly stuffed and tired and feeling gross and fat but very happy that we have such a loving family to share this holiday season with! And that is only the beginning!!
