Christmas Cheer with Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut

Happy Tuesday morning to all of you! Guess what? I awoke to a beautiful SNOWY morning!!! you know how much I have been wanting one, and God so graciously provided!!! thank you, precious Father!!! I absolutely LOVE IT!!!! :)

today is also the morning that the DT at The Rusty Pickle has been invited to play along with the gang over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. How blessed are we?! :) that is one talented group of ladies! We were given a fun sketch to follow and then told to play to our heart's content. So play I did! :D

I used these beautiful papers from K & Co.'s Christmas Cheer pack. I love the colors in here! so different and yet so rich! I printed off probably my fave ever of Michelle's images, this adorable Santa gnome. I think it's because he reminds me of so many Santas that I have in my collection. He just makes me smile so big! :) To keep with the vintage feel of the papers, I added some green sequins and the gorgeous Prima poinsettias with leaf. He has some shimmerz painted on his gloves and stickles on his hat and coat for some shine. His belt buckle is covered in my spica glitter pen. A bit of May Arts burgundy ric rack finishes it off. The edges of the card base were inked with white craft and the matting behind Santa was distressed.

Be sure to check out the other amazing creations of both the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge DT and The Rusty Pickle DT.
