Thank you to everyone who joined us for last week's sketch!!! What a terrific group of Christmas cards! I love to see what will be done with my sketch! Sometimes I create the sketch and think to myself "Will anybody like this sketch?" So thank you to all who play and encourage me to keep going!

Wendy's Choice: #1 Sherry Eckblad
Button Junkie
Loved Sherry's card for the second week in a row! Fabulous papers and I love the K & Company embellishment! Super cute Christmas card! Congratulations, Sherry, for being my Top Pick this week!

LeAnne's Choice: Alicia
Paper Art Princess

It is no secret that I love silhouettes, especially stamped in white on this beautiful aqua background!  I especially love winter scene silhouettes, and when they're made into a cute little snowglobe like this one, I am over the top!  What a clever creation Alicia has made--and it earned her a Top Pick from me!  Congratulations!

Nina’s Choice: Jen
Ladybug Designs

Jen’s card caught my eye this week, I am always drawn to texture. I love the simple cream and brown colour combination and the snowflake is so elegant.  Finished with sparkly brads and Congratulations Jen, for being my Top Pick this week!

Vicki's Choice:
I just love Danielle's sweet little shaker card! The doily framed image is adorable. Love the added bling and fun sentiment too. Congratulations, Danielle, for being my top pick this week.

Narelle's Choice: Mikki
Mikki's Creative Corner

How gorgeous is this card?  I love Mikki's card because of the gorgeous wintery, Christmasy scene she has created. Her use of chalks for the sky and sunset/sunrise is very clever and very effective.  Frostwood lodge is the perfect DSP to complete this scene. Congratulations Mikki, for being my Top Pick this week!

Bonnie's Choice:

Beverly's little snow globe scene is so adorable.  It reminds me of snow globes when I was a kid.  I love her choice of decorative paper and the little banner too. Congratulations, Beverly on being my Top Pick this week.

This week's winner is:

Lesley's Choice:
I chose Hayley's sweet card because I love how she coloured in that snowman with glitter! His hat and scarf are also paper pieced, which makes him even more extra special.
