Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge - A Little Christmas

Hi there stampers!
This little blog post is gonna be as short and sweet as I can make it - I've had a very full, very fun day, first stamping with my ladies in WOW! Christmas Cards class, then at the ice rink with Emma, then visiting with my pal Kimberly. That's a lot of day for this ol' girl and I need to take myself off to beddy bye so I can do it all over again tomorrow! LOL!

Here is the sketch this week from Stamping 411. It was perfect for me this week as I was designing for my classes today and tomorrow and this layout fit my design idea perfectly - love it when that happens!

I love, love, love this sweet little Christmas girl. She is from the oh, so popular Greeting Card Kids stamp set - that I'd sworn not to order because I'm not a big watercolorer - but I saw SO many of my friends using it, I just had to jump in the pool too!

This is really short on details, but just so you know, I used the Winter Post stamp set (may it never retire!) along with my sweet little girl. The colors are Soft Suede, Marina Mist and Naturals Ivory. The watercoloring was done with my Aqua Painters and Re-inkers and I colored her fur trim with the White Gel Pen then added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

The ribbon is the Victoria Crochet Trim paired with some Marina Mist 5/8" Grosgrain. I used one of the Candy Cane Big Designer Buttons and some Linen Thread with it.

And of course, I had to stamp the inside too. The greeting is from Many Merry Messages.

Yep, if you had signed up for my classes this weekend, you could be making 2 of these babies! But hey, at least I shared it with you! Now you can make it at home in your PJ's! :)

Be sure to check out the Stamping 411 blog and see what the other Operators designed for you this week. I know they will be awesome projects!
Have a wonderful Fall weekend everyone!
Stamped blessings,
