Last sketch of the year for TPS monthly, last challenge ever, as a matter of fact...

Hello wemenz, How have you all been fairing lately?
Has everyone got their Christmas cards mailed out?
The shopping done???
Well, enough fraternizing and onto the reason for todays posting.

It's our very last challenge over at
Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Sketch Challenges,
and come January, The Pinkies will join Kellie
in launching an all new, all in one
MEGA-PINK weekly challenge blog,
check it out HERE, there's candy, wink wink!!

I've used the gorgeous Clara by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, find it HERE at Tickled Pink Stamps, she's coloured with distress inks on watercolour paper, then cut out and glued onto another stamped image that's distressed in Vintage Photo. The papers are Websters Pages and October Afternoon (checks), the punch is by Martha Stewart and the laces and flowers are from my stash. The snowflake was made with nesties dies :)

This sketch is a yummy one, with lots of opportunites to layer, love it!!
I'm going to pop this in at Kraftin Kimmie's Let it snow challenge and
Totally Papercrafts Christmas punches challenge
Well, I guess I hit the highlights here,
so it is time to drag my buns to bed.

Please stop by Tickled Pink Stamps and tell Waffles hello!!

hugs, stephanne

She's so cute, and love the way you have her billowing skirt off the mat panel. Great coloring as always and lucious embellishments and flowers.

Your card is so sweet with those soft colors, so beautiful, so Stephanne! And I looooove this image. It was in my shoppingbasket one time, but I had to choose and decided I could do a little longer without this one. I don't know why I thought that... ;-)
