New Sketch at Sketch N Stash - can you tell I'm in Christmas mode!

Another Monday rolls around, and the good thing about that means it's time for our next challenge at Sketch N Stash!  This time we have a free choice challenge - just choose a sketch you fancy from our back catalogue of sketches which you can find over on the challenge home page here. - I've gone with Sketch No. 30.  We're being sponsored for this challenge by Simon Says Stamps who are offering a rather fabby $15 dollar voucher to spend with them!


  You may  have noticed  if you are a regular visitor to my blog that I'm well and truly into Christmas mode at the minute! Trying to get as many as possible done before the mad rush of present buying begins!
The fabulous Mo Manning has got some wonderful dwarf images over at Mo's Digital Pencil and I think they are just fantastic for Christmas cards.  This one is Dwarf No 3- look at his fat little belly!! 
The snowflake frame is a new Stamp Around the Page set from Martha Stewart - a recent purchase from QVC and it is brilliant!! I've also used Basic Grey Jovial papers which have been in my stash for at least a year. They suit my dwarf perfectly!!  You  can also just see a little bit of pine needles peeking out that were made using a MS punch.  The wooden snowflakes are Tando which I've distressed a little with Vintage photo Distress Ink and the winter stamp is by Cat's Life Press, bought from Crafty Emma's store, along with the dew drops and mini Christmas Tree button.
My teamettes at Sketch N Stash have chosen some awesome sketches to make awesome cards so check them out if you get the chance!
Have a great week and thanks for popping by!!

When I saw these Snow White dwarfs of Mo's I thought they would be good for Christmas too but I vowed not to buy any new Christmas images. A vow I might break on Sunday!!! Love your card. Fab colourwork and I love the sentiment stamp! Love Lesley
