Christmas Eve ~ Sketch Saturday #29


Another gorgeous sketch by Jo for this week's Sketch Saturday. I am loving being able to participate with such a suber talented DT and I love seeing all the gorgeous cards you all create!
Well, Christmas is almost here and I'm heading into the home stretch of getting ready! I really am not a last minute kind of girl (sometimes I don't have a choice) and I like to spend the last few days before Christmas just enjoying the decorations, the excitment and anticipation of my little guys as they await Santa, and the beauty of Christmas Eve Mass. In this little scene I created, I imagine that it is Christmas Eve (see the time on the mantle clock?) and Willow is completely done with her holiday preparations and is taking a well earned rest with a warm cup of cocoa and can feel secure that all is ready! I wish this for myself and for all of you!

I couldn't find any embellies in my stash that worked well with the scene so I decide to use my new Cropodile and set these jumbo brads into the cardstock. I threaded some ribbon through and I quite like the look it gave!

You might notice that my photo is taken in front of a window. My new craft room is almost ready and I couldn't resist seeing how a photo would look taken from the window. The light is really soft and nice and I can't wait until the room is completely done. All that is left is the actual cabinets and we hope to get them in by next Tuesday. Then I can move in and vacate the dining room table and rescue my stamping supplies from the garage! I promise to post pictures! I am so lucky to have a husband that insisted that I needed to have my own room!

  • Stamps: Whiff of Joy, The Stamping Place
  • Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU! Red Riding Hood, Making Memories FaLaLa Dp
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: SU! Brads and Red Riding Hood Ribbon

Here's the sketch! Hope you can find time to join in with us and don't forget to visit the rest of the DT! Their cards are so beautiful!
