Crafty Calendar Challenge ~ Sketch

Good morning

Hope you are all well and keeping warm in this icy cold weather. 

It's the first Saturday of the month so a new challenge has been set at Crafty Calendar Challenge.  Our challenge this month is a sketch provided by Fern with the optional extra of 'Christmas'.

The DT were very lucky to be able to choose a digi stamp from our sponsor/teamie Ruth at A Passion for Stamps.  As soon as I saw this beautiful robin image I knew I wanted to use it for my Nan's Christmas card because she loves traditional style cards.



Papers ~ BG Jovial and HOTP
Flowers ~ Wild Orchid Crafts and Mulberry Crafts
Berries ~ Crafty Feeling kit
Leaves ~ Magnolia DooHickey 'Leaf' die
Ribbon/Pearls ~ Stash
Sentiment ~ Cat's Life Press

Challenges

Basic Grey ~ A Recipe
Wild Orchid ~ Old Fashioned Christmas
M.A.W.T.T ~ Someone Special (My Nan)
ABC Christmas ~ Y is for Yuletide (Holly & Berries)
Stamp Something ~ Christmas Colour Combo
Secret Crafter ~ Christmas

Chloe is going to her friend's today and sleeping over tonight and Jamie is going to spend the day with Chris' mum so we are going Christmas shopping later.  My friends Lynsey and Marianne are doing a craft fair today so I am also hoping to pop along to see them.

Hope you have a great weekend.
