Split Coast Sketch Challenge 152

You guessed it!!!! It's Wednesday and that means it's the Sketch Challenge over at Split Coast Stampers.

I just LOVE this Jolliest Time of the Year set. And I got to use the Ho Ho Ho wheel too!!! Oh and I used this Liquid Applique that I bought about 4 or 5 years ago. I never used it and I actually thought it would be dried up but it wasn't!!! It was as fresh as it was the day I bought it! I put it on the snowflakes and on Santa's hat, cuffs and coat bottom. While it was wet I sprinkled the Dazzling Diamonds glitter over it and then I let it dry. That was when I decided it was time to go to bed!!! I had my email open at the time the Sketch came in and I opened it. Something I shouldn't have done because I knew I had to work on it. And I did. I got it almost done and then just ran out of steam!!! This was a very fun and I think versatile sketch. I can't wait to see the what other people did with it on SplitCoast. I'm heading over there later tonight to have a look see. I am in awe of some of the entries.

I like doing the sketches. The gal Roxy that is head of this one sends out the link and I print them out. They print out in the exact 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" that a card is. I print out two, one for my folder and one to use in front of me. I cut the pieces and just work on top of the printout. I don't measure much, I usually just set the card stock up to the sketch and mark with a pencil where I need to cut. SO simple!!!

It was fun and I think I'm going to go back and add a bit of glitter in the few snowflakes at the top of the card. It just needs a little sparkle up there too!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
