Sketch Saturday - Sneak Peek!

Happy Sunday!

We are in the midst of another snow storm here today, so it's a perfect day for stamping! Plus, with all the holiday preparations, I haven't stamped in days. While out blog hopping, I came across a sketch on Jeanette's blog. This one is for Sketch Saturday's weekly challenge. This is the sketch you need to use. Then you can post your creation and leave a comment for the Sketch Saturday team. The DT cards are just beautiful!

The card I made with this sketch uses a new Whimsy Stamps image, one that will be released on January 1st. So I guess this is a little sneak peek along with the challenge! This is our Whimsy Animals Collection Polar Bear, but now that I think about it, he could be any kind of bear with a little color.

I started with Baja Breeze cardstock and layered on various pieces of Ski Slope DSP from Stampin' Up!. The accents on this card are felt snowflakes, rhinestone brads without the brad, snow writer pen and glitter, and wide grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment is also a new one from Whimsy Stamps, available on January 1st!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Sunday!

Happy Stamping!

BTW, that sketch looks so complicated, but then again everything looks complicated when you have million things to do before Christmas...hehehe.
