These sketches are also our sketch challenge for this week, so be sure to check out all the information in the discussion in our Challenge group over on StampTV Thursday morning. We'd love to see your cards with the sketch too!

Here are my cards...as usual, can't do just one - kept the details short so you can keep hoppin...


from Holiday Cheer STV kit  -used glaze on items in wreath and bow and stickles! 


sentiment from Holiday Cheer STV set...turned the sketch - the paper inspired me!



another one that the paper + stamps just matched! stamps from A Very Merry Christmas and Holiday Cheer


stamps are from GKD's " Sandy Claws" set and digi cardstock


my non-traditional Christmas card...used GKD's "Tree Silhouettes" and sentiment from Sandy Claws set! should have put my ribbon on other side to be closer to sketch...

Now is this a HUGE HOP or what!!
if you would like more specifics, just let me know! so now I'm getting something to drink and going to HOP!!! (of course this will probably take me a couple of days, LOL)


blessings to all!
