Sweet Sunday Elves

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC68. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog, The Sweetest Thing.

I went for Christmas with this card since I fell off the Christmas-card-a-week wagon a couple of weeks ago! This fun Give a Little set from The Cat's Pajamas has been sitting patiently on my stamp table since February and yesterday Poochie called out to get inky, so I obliged. I {heart} Poochie...he reminds me of our sweet mini Schnauzer, Shadow. This image takes me back to when we were kids and we'd pile the presents around us before opening them...good times!!!

Anyway, on to the card...I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream three times. Everything is coloured with copics and I popped the presents for dimension, then popped the little teddy bear one more time cause he's out in front. The patterned papers are from the October Afternoon Good Cheer 8x8 pad and I did a little stitching around all the edges. The sentiment is punched out with my SU modern label punch, sponged with black around the edges, then I added two red Tiny Twinkles. I finished the card with pink and red buttons.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation to Karen's blog. Now let's go see what fabulous eye candy the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with.

I totally spaced on today being Mother's day...see, we don't have kids, my Mom is travelling so I won't be talking to her and she lives in Canada so I won't be seeing her, and my MIL already received her gift on Friday and she's in Canada too with plans for today. So, for me, today's just another Sunday. But, for all the Moms out there, Happy Mother's Day and I hope you have a fabulous day!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
