Christmas In July


This weeks The Sweet Stop Sketch has a twist...Christmas!
Yep, it's just a few short months until Christmas so this should help you get a jump on all those Christmas cards you have to make.  I know that I do not even want to think about Christmas yet, but I did enjoy pulling out a Magnolia image that I had never inked up...Tilda with Candy Cane.  I LOVE this sketch so much and it was so quick and easy...it would make a fabulous sketch for mass producing those holiday greetings.  So don't be surprised if you see it again.  :)


And speaking of Christmas...Ironically I do have some Christmas shopping to do today.  This is the weekend that Hallmark comes out with their Limited Quantity Keepsake Ornament collection.  I get Brooke a Disney Precious Moment porcelain ornament every year...this year is Sleeping Beauty. 
 I better go before they're all gone!!


The Sugar Babies have some gorgeous sketch samples to share with you this week!! Please be sure to stop by and check them out.  



Thanks for stopping by today...hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Delightful colours of the papers & the way you picked up on those for your image. The dimension on that candy cane is brilliant & the stocking are great fun. Hope you got the ornament OK??

Very sweet card and I love the Precious Moments figurine that Brooke will be getting. She'll love all of these as she gets older and can look back and remember each one fondly. What a sweet mom you are!!!
