Whiff of Joy Challenges Sketch

I'm back to work tomorrow after my  two weeks off work - I just don't know where the time has gone since we got back from NY - I had plans to do so much!  We did go and see Skyfall yesterday which was just brilliant and I do like a bit of Daniel Craig!  However I haven't done all my Christmas shopping, finished making all my Christmas cards nor sorted out all those cupboards and drawers that needed sorting out!
Still, I did get this Christmas card made for our new challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenges where we have a fabulous sketch for you designed by our fabulous Karina!
Karina's+Sketch+6
I've used one of the cute Norma Fickel gnomes  which you can find here at WOJ- I can't get enough of these for Christmas cards - this one's called Wee and Christmas Tree.

I've used my Pro and Flexmarkers to colour him, my papers are a mix of Echo Park and First Edition (Isabella, I think) and the round back panel is a christmas doily.

The stars are a Memory Box die and the the frame around the image is a Fleur de Lys Nestie die.
It's a great sketch isn't it and I do hope you will play along with us, we'd so love to see your creations!  You can see the gorgeous creations by the rest of the WOJ challenge team here.  

Oh, and very importantly, I must tell you that we have our wonderful regular sponsor with us, Simon Says Stamp who are offering an awesome $25 credit voucher to spend with them! 

Have a great day.
