My Favourite Things...

There's a fab sketch for this week's Inspirational Card Sketches Challenge...which I combined with the themes of a few other challenges: Daring Cardmakers and Cuttlebug Challenges 'My Favourite Things (I'll put a list at the end of this post); Our Creative Corner's 'Favourite Holiday Book/Movie' (in my case it's 'The Snowman'); and Papertake Weekly's 'Spots 'n' Stripes' challenge. I used 'Snowy' by Penny Black, watercolouring him to match the My Mind's Eye '29th Street Market' papers...and I couldn't resist adding some glitter to the fur on his hat. I used my 'Swiss Dots' folder on the reverse of the paper for the strip along the top. The ribbon is from Poppicrafts, the sentiment stamp is by Three Bugs in a Rug, and the snowflakes were cut using a Cuttlebug die.


My Favourite Things:
  1. Christmas Cards
  2. Sketch Challenges
  3. Penny Black stamps (especially 'Snowy')
  4. My Mind's Eye '29th Street Market' papers
  5. Ribbon
  6. Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder
  7. Nesties - what would we do without them???
  8. Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' die
  9. Stickles Glitter Glue
  10. Three Bugs in a Rug Christmas sentiment stamp - I've used these loads this year!
