CSAYL: It’s My Fave ~

You all know how much I adore sketches – they take all the hard work out of a card for me!  One of our final challenges with Christmas Stampin All Year Long is to use our favorite sketch challenge!  We are sponsored by the uber duber cute Pink Cat Studios Stamps.  One lucky winner will get their choice of 5 digi stamps!PCS_Sponsor_Image_LargeOne of my all time favorite sketch challenges is the Sketch For You to Try {SFYTT} from Jen del Muro at i{heart}2stamp.  I used the sketch for the month of October on this one.  It’s new starting tomorrow, but you have a little time to still get your sample in. {wink}   csayl pcs bearI had a total mishap happen with this card.  I set a rectangle nestie up around my already colored image and taped it down (I used painter’s tape).  I must’ve bumped it before I cranked it through the ‘bug (and not taped it down enough) because it was all scatttywompus when I pulled up the plate.  Ugh…I *hate* when that happens!  I decided to cut him out and pop him up on some patterned paper that was supposed to be the back mat instead.  The base is a smoky gray – the perfect compliment to this retired Stampin’ Up paper. 

That’s all I’ve got for you today!  I hope you get to play along with our current challenge and get another Christmas card done.  If you don’t think you’ll have time to make your own cards this year, bop down to this post for a chance at some picture holiday cards from Shutterfly!  There aren’t many comments, so you’ll have a pretty good chance at winning one of three prizes!!  lol  Have a great start to your weekend!!  ;o) lyss

So cute even though I normally think polar bears are creepy.
