An Announcement

Good morning everyone, Happy Saturday!  I have some super exciting news to share with all of you!  Today I can officially announce that I am now a Design Team member at the The Sweet Stop blog, I'm a Sugar Baby! Squeal!  I am so excited and happy to be sharing my first project with you as part of this fabulous design team!

If you've been by the Sweet Stop Blog before then you know that it is a sketch challenge blog.  Here is the sketch we would like you to follow this week to enter into our challenge.

For my card I used a Sweet and Sassy image, Bundled Up Snowman.  Snowmen are my favorite in the winter, snowman images at least.  I'm perfectly happy to watch the snow from inside as it falls on the outside.  I let the kids and hubby make the snowmen and I take the pictures.  Works for me!

Materials I Used for My Project:
Copic Markers
Glitter embellishments
Spellbinder's Classic Oval and Scalloped Oval dies

Here's a closer look at my colored image.

Now it's your turn!  Create a card using the above sketch and link it to the Sweet Stop Blog.  The other Sugar Babies have made some fabulous projects to inspire you.  I hope you stop by the challenge blog to take a look and then link up your own project and play along!
Thanks so much for stopping by today,
