Jingle Belles 24

We had a sketch challenge this week courtesy of Kirsty Vittetoe.  If you check out this link to the challenge you'll get the links to Kirsty's blog and more.  Here's the sketch....

And here's what I did with it............

There is minimal stamping on this in that it's only the sentiment that was stamped.  The dsp had a candy theme to it so I drew the peppermint lifesaver to add as the circular element.  I had originally drawn one and then coated it in CE, but the marker bled and I didn't have time to redo it and post this before the deadline today.  What I think I will have to do is to put a piece of packing tape over the lifesaver and then add the CE so the red doesn't bleed into the white again. 

Sorry for the quick post again, but I'm still playing catch-up at work!  Oh, I can't wait until next Wednesday at about 3 p.m.  I'll have a few days off before we start our summer hours and hopefully then I will have some time to catch up with my "hobbies". 

I'm sure you want to see the rest of the creations this week - click here.
