merry and bright...

Happy 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday!!!


This week our sponsor is:




Here's the fabbie sketch for today:


I had the opportunity to play with the Sweet 'N Sassy Holly Wreath image: 


The wreath is a gorgeous detailed image that has so many possibilities!  All the patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather.  The 'merry & bright' sentiment is from E.A.D Designs Merry & Bright Stickerz.  I used Stampin' Up markers {old olive/real red} instead of my copics because I love the small tip that the SU markers have... I also used 2 different white gel pens, Inkssentials & Signo....I hit the berries with Stampin' Up Crystal Effects and a majority of the white twigs with Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamonds glitter.


I purposely didn't color the holly leaves with an opaque color...I think it gives it more of an aged look with the whimsical coloring:)

I hope that you'll join us in today's sketch challenge...make sure that you pop over to the 365 Cards blog to see what the other gals on the Sunday Sketch Crew created!

♥♥Happy Mail♥♥

I've been one spoiled chickie...check out all these beauties that I recently received:

Look at this WONDERFUL Alice-in-Wonderland card that Stephanie sent to me:

It is truly a stunner...the colors and images are fabulously vibrant and whimsical! 

Next up is  a super fun card from Tina!


The interior says:

A journey of 1000
miles begins with a whole
lot of COFFEE

Okay, now how fun is that?  I immediately emailed Tina and found out that it is a Paper Makeup set called Caffeine Trip...uh yeah, it should be arriving soon...I 'had' to order it...

Next is a lovely card from Karen Baker:


Such a fabbie color combo...love it!  I also received all of these goodies:


I already used the red/white baker's twine on my card from yesterday...the blooms are fabric and the other string is vintage wool...woot woot...

Thank you sooooooo much ladies....you really know how to make me feel so very special and I'm so very thankful for all of you:)
