Last Post for 2012 {Cleary Besotted with the Sweet Sunday Sketch}

One last post before the holidays! I will be away from my craft room for a whole TWO WEEKS! EEK! Hopefully I won't go into withdrawal! I am excited to get away with my hubby. I am looking forward to shopping and relaxing. And yes...I will be hitting every stamp and scrapbooking store I can find!

I have wanted to play with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for a long time! Tonight I inked up another "Clearly Besotted" stamp that I won a couple of weeks ago! It was such an awesome surprise! I used some designer paper from my stash and some brand new "Simple Stories" pattern paper called Snap Colour Vibe (I lurve this paper)! I have seen a lot of designers use the sentiment cut up in a cute way and I decided to give that a whirl when I saw the tab on the side of Karen's sketch. This sweet little girl is coloured with Copics and then I fussy cut her out, so I could make her stick out of the sketch. I turned Karen's awesome sketch on the side...thank you for the inspiration Karen!

One of my personal challenges this year is to use ribbon more often on my projects! Is it too much here? I also created my card for the following challenges.

Pile It On Embellishments 
Great Impressions--anything goes
Love to Create--anything goes
Make It Monday--anything goes

To all my blogging pals, have a very Merry Christmas and I wish you all the best for the coming year!
