Sketchy Colors........

Good Evening!
I am pretty late with my card today!! haha
The girls got the day off due to the storm so I had
to occupy them for awhile then I got to play!

I have used the sketch over at Sketchy Colors for my card!
I have been wanting to play along and finally got the chance.
I also am so happy I started my Christmas cards!
I am going to follow suit with a few DT members and start
my cards early this year! Plus there are so many stamps
I did not get to use last year!!

I have used one of the gnomes, Wee with Christmas Tree,  from
Whiff Of Joy for my card.  I think they are darling and I
cannot wait to see what the next ones will be like!

Paper is from Cosmo Cricket (seen Katharina using it and pulled it out!)
Lace ~ JoAnn's, Snowflake ~ Nesties, Sentiment ~ CHF
Brads ~ Micheal's

I have alot of texture to the card and that is for the Ways
to use it challenge at at Splitcoast.  I ran one panel through
the cuttlebug and I have put each section of tree on
dimensionals with the highest section
being mounted the highest!

Well thanks so much for stopping by tonight!
I appreciate all your lovely words and thanks so much
for all your thoughts regarding our weather!
It didn't get as bad as they had thought and I think
the worst of it is over!!
Have a great week-end!
