Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge #18 --- My Sketch!

Here we are at Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge #18 and it is my turn! Yeah! I've had this ready for awhile, but before I reveal the sketch and card, I want to thank everyone who participates in the SS&S Challenge. I didn't get to comment on all of them this month but I did take a look. Awesome projects, as usual!

On a sadder note we are saying "so long" and many thanks to our very talented guest designers: Mira, Claire and Vicki. They have added such amazing creativity and we love them bunches. Please take an extra minute or two to pay them a visit. I'm sure we will be seeing much more of them. Thank you, ladies! You are all spectacular!

Now, on to the sketch for this challenge. Since we are just around the corner from Christmas and New Year's, this challenge will be up for three weeks rather than the usual two. So, even with all the celebrations, family fun, and food, we hope to see just as many --- if not more! --- participants. Challenge #19 will be posted on January 10, 2010.

It is my pleasure to present the sketch for Challenge #18:

Does it look like fun? Well, I liked it when I did this card. I hope you have fun with it, too. Are you surprised it isn't a holiday theme? I've done close to 200 Christmas cards so far, so I couldn't wait to use this Sarah Kay stamp I bought last month. Isn't he just the cutest? I also have the new "Farmer's Market" stack from DCWV and love all the patterns in it. Also, this paper is 70% recycled materials. That's a good thing! The reverse side is a nice cream color.

List of ingredients:
Image: Sarah Kay
Coloring: Copics
Designer Papers: Farmer's Market from DCWV (yes, I believe those are beets, maybe radishes)
Border punch: Martha Stewart
Buttons and twine

I hope you enjoy the sketch. Most of all, I plan on seeing your project over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp. Thanks for stopping by my blog and the other designers' blogs.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to everyone!
