GDT Sketch Saturday - Whoo-Hoo!


Remember about a month ago I mentioned some really exciting news?  Well, today is the day!

The wonderful, fantastic, fabulous challenge that is Sketch Saturday have asked me if I would be their Guest Design Team member for December!  Whoooo-hoo!  How excited am I?  Cannot begin to tell you how much.  I am nervous as well though since I have discovered that there is a HUGE difference between making a card for fun for the challenge and making one to show you guys.  I only hope I can do justice to their wonderful sketches.

So, for my very first ever GDT slot, there is a stunning sketch from the uber talented Jeanette



And this is what I have done with it .....



I have used the High Hopes Snow Family stamp, coloured with Promarkers, papers and mirri card are a mixture from stash, ribbon is from The Range, flowers are Prima and snowflakes are Dovecraft. 

Millie is the first grandchild of Pauline, one of my friends at work (yep, got more than one!) and this card will be winging its way to her shortly from her grandma.  It'll be a bittersweet Christmas - Millie's dad (Pauline's son) is in the navy and now away on a six month tour of duty so he will miss her first Christmas and the family will be missing him very much.

This is such an amazing sketch to work with and I hope you will all give it a go this week.  I'll do my best to pop round and see you all.  You will be stuck with me again as GDT next week so don't say you haven't been warned LOL!!

Before I scamper off, must just say sorry for being such a poor blog visitor over the past couple of weeks - things are all just getting a bit blarrrrrrrrgh at the moment, both at work and home - not touched any crafting for a week either - but come Christmas things should settle down again (or else) and I shall be back to popping in to check out your amazing creations.

Thanks for dropping by, always fab to see you
Hugs
