Season's Greetings! Sketch Saturday Challenge #181!


It's Saturday again and time for another fun Sketch to play with at "Sketch Saturday"! 
And I think I'm finally starting to get in the holiday mood...as I've only had Christmas cards on the brain lately! But that's a good thing...cause I'm usually one to procrastinate.

Plus I wanted to show off my new Christmas themed sentiments that were just added to "Prairie Fairy Designs" shop yesterday!

Here's my card using this week "Sketch Saturday" sketch and a little inspiration for you...


The Sketch:


And this week we are sponsored by "Simon Says Stamp"!


"With over 100,000 items in stock, Simon is proud to offer the best selection of Rubber Stamps, Scrapbooking, Artist Trading Cards, Altered Art, and Paper Crafting Supplies in the world!"
A very generous $25 gift certificate will be awarded to our lucky winner this week to spend on goodies in the SSS store!

Thank you to everyone at SSS xx


The absolutely gorgeous image I used on my card is from "Prairie Fairy Designs" called: 'Santa and the Deer' and can be found in the shop HERE! The sentiment is one from a set of 8 also available in the shop HERE! Roberta has the most amazing digi images to play with and now some sentiments too!


I used Glamour Dust on santa and for the snow too...I'm never good at capturing the sparkle...but it is super sparkly!

I used another one of those Dollar Tree snowflake ornaments and some of the white snowflake buttons too!
