Belles and Whistles does Sketch Saturday.....

Good Afternoon!! I hope everyone is staying warm!! WOW it is pretty frigid here!! I just wish we would get some snow to go along with it!! Back home is getting hit hard with the white stuff and I wish I could have went home with my parents yesterday!

Anyways I found some time to do the sketch over at Sketch Saturday! It was a nice and easy layout and thought it would work with my bigger image. This is Star of Bethlehem. I just adore this the whole Christmas collection of stamps at Belles and Whistles! I had a little of this paper from My Mind's Eye from last year and decided to use it up! I like darker cards but thought I would do a brighter one for my nieces! This picture reminded me of them!
Well only a few more cards to finish but this year I have more stamps that I have to use so I just may make them after Christmas!! haha I just shouldn't have started so late!

Make sure to stop by the Belles and Whistles Advent calendar and take a look at what Lilian did with this image!! It is gorgeous!!! Love her "fabric" she made for the dress ~ so stunning!! Also there is a chance at winning a grab bag with a value of $25 everyday!

Well I thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful night!
