I finally got to play a sketch challenge!

It seems like lately I've had so little time to play with anything! Between work and planning for Thanksgiving and then planning for the Christmas decorations and everything ELSE that goes along with Christmas, I've just been a busy as a bee!

And so, after I went to the movies with my hubby today (we saw the new .007 flick...Daniel Craig? MEOW! LOL!) I made a little time to play with some paper and all the newness that I have that I haven't gotten to use!

I found a cute as a button sketch over on the High Hopes blog so I used that for my card today. I wanted to use my new High Hopes Stamps, but they aren't here yet! *crosses fingers it will be soon!* But instead, I used one of my new Sarah Kay stamps! Isn't this image so cute?! Looks just like what little boys would do in the choir! hehe!

Isn't this a fab sketch? You can use either a rectangle or an oval. I used...an oval inside a Labels 1 to make a frame. :D

What I used: Sarah Kay stamp from Stampavie, SU CS, Basic Grey PP, Martha Stewart border punch, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders dies, paper piercer, Prima poinsettia, dew drop, Martha Stewart branch punch and Martha Stewart holly leaf punch, ribbon. Stamped and then clear embossed...then colored with Copics...a bit of Copic Atyou Spica Glitter pen on the boys' robes and around the candle glow.

That is it for today! Thanks for stopping in today. :)
