ME!!! Another Sketch..



Hello Everyone....I'm back again...wow!!...five cards this weekend..

but, this time I'm here to support the Sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday  as Stampfairy is their sponsor this week....

Now I have never been good at following sketches as I wing my way through life, but I'm getting quite good at it now and sometimes I even get it just right...and sometimes I dont...this time I scraped through...by my twine..lol..

 
Heres the great sketch for this week...
 
 


And here is my card using BARRY WINTER 2   [and you can get him at half price till the 31st December]...pom poms on the Stampfairy tree which was fussy cut out...



Beautiful wee Barry, my favourite of all the Bears...all coloured up with pencils, and a cotton ball stretched across his hat for fur...his little birdhouse dripping with snow....



And the side view...papers were a freebie from a magazine ['Forever Friends']...and the twine saved my life as I had not followed the sketch...I wandered off the path and started doing my own thing...okay!...okay!...I added the holly paper behind Barry after it was all glued down too...tricky but true...

YAY!!! for the twine and holly paper...

Going to enter a challenge at Stampin for the weekend.  [Let it snow]
and C.R.A.F.T   [Winter]

Thanks for stopping by and all the fabulous comments you all leave, love reading everyone of them...and hope you all having a great weekend and already for the big day which is coming fast and furious....

Luv CHRISSYxx

Your card turned out beautiful - a great take on the sketch! I always have a plan when I sit down to make a card, but I usually end up with something totally different from my original idea! I love to use sketches, but it can be a challenge to keep to them! Love your details of the twine and pompons, fab papers and sweet image!

Chrissy this is just too adorable! I love your papers and the twine you have used along with it. Your bear my friend looks just fantastic as always. I just wish I could color bears and animals as well as you do. :O) I need lessons on that. You seem to be having a wonderfully creative weekend. I hope that you have a wonderful week as well.
