1 challenge in 2 cards.....

Yes, you did read the title right, I've made 2 cards for the Just Christmas & Birthday sketch challenge this time round. I started making a birthday card, enjoyed using the sketch so much and having been to a demo this afternoon where they were making Christmas cards decided I should start making some more, to try and avoid the last minute rush and maybe even sell some more this year!

One of the Gorjuss girls from set 2 made an appearance on this card, would love set 3 but having spent loads already lately, will have to wait a while..... Images coloured with PMs. DSP, Sweet Always from SU, brown CS, Coredinations Chocolate Box, loving this cardstock don't know why I didn't buy it ages ago, so treated myself the the Whitewash set this afternoon - to use when and if my Magnolia summer kit arrives - still not arrived today!

I wanted to use this snowman stamp for my Christmas version of this sketch, didn't realise he was so large tho, so played around with the sketch a little, artistic licence, isn't that what they call it? Just thinking now as I look at the card, if I had made an A5 version rather than a 6 x 6 I could have had snowmen on each horizontal line, mmmm... may try that one later.

Got lots of ideas buzzing round my head at the mo, got a couple of cards to make for work, saw some lovely cards with different folds at the demo at The Range today and some challenges to complete, what should I do first? Should be able to manage them all if the weather stays this awful tomorrow as won't be setting foot out of the door!
