On The Third Day of Christmas...

Good Morning!

I hope you all had a great weekend! We were expecting to get slammed with snow yesterday but we didn't get a single snowflake! So disappointing. The Man was looking forward to testing out the new tires on the truck too. :) Men will always be boys, right? hehe

I hope you all found some time this weekend to play with the first two sketches for The Greeting Farm's 12 Days of Christmas challenge. Today is Day 3 of the challenge and Mercy has created a great sketch for everyone! You can check out the sketch over at TGF blog.

I spent most of yesterday baking cookies, peanut brittle, etc for Syd's daycare teachers (and our stash!), but found some time afterwards to color up this cutie for today's challenge. This is Chibi Drink digi from illustrator, Jessica Hymas. She's so sweet with her big eyes and all those layers in her dress!

I kept pretty true to Mercy's sketch, except I added some scalloped borders and some buttons to fill the void in the top right hand corner. Whenever I work on a card that has multiple panels, I gravitate (a lot) towards my 6x6 collection pads because I know I'll have matching patterned papers to choose from. But sometimes dumb luck comes into play and I stumble on multiple 12x12 sheets from a collection in my stash. That happened yesterday when I didn't even realize that I had two double sided sheets of this old SEI paper. My paper collection is a mess. I used to have it all organized by company, but with all the cards I've made this year, it's just in shambles now. I think I need to take some time over the next couple of week so sort it all out. We'll see how that goes! LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great day!
