Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #18

Happy Memorial Day, Friends!! It's Monday and it's Christmas Stampin All Year Long challenge time again. This week is a sketch challenge and we're on number 18 already! Yipee. this week it's a simple challenge this time around. Check out the Sketch Challenge Here. Hope you'll play along this week!

I decided to use The Greeting Farm "Rain Snow Shine" stamp set. Isn't she pretty? I had fun creating this card. It's so much easier to create a card with a sketch.

Whenever I create a card, although I create a sketch for my card and post it along with my cards, I create the sketch after I created the card. Rather than following a sketch, I create the sketches on my blog following my card.

As I stated yesterday, my husband is leaving for a business trip. I feel bad for him because he hates going on business trips. He'll be returning on Wednesday immediately after his meeting. He rarely if ever stays any longer than he has to.

Anyway, a little about my card. . .same ole' same ole'. . colored my card with Copics and that's it. I should stop telling you all what I do. . .it's basically the same thing pretty much on all my cards. LOL!

Be sure to stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long and check out the beautiful cards created by the DT.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

This card is just fabulous, I love the design of this card, and your coloring is just awesome. I know what you mean about joining a gym verses a video, in a club you get inspiration, a video you do not, I have tried both :) and find when I pay to go to a class, gym, I go because I do not want to waste the money :).
