Sweet Sketch Wednesday - SSW80

Oh my how this week is flying by...  It's midweek and all I can think of is all the Christmas shopping I still have left to do for my family.  My best efforts to get out and about have been hampered by the subfreezing temperatures and huge dump of snow here in SE Michigan that has just parallized everything. Two snow days in a row with no school for my kids - and two hour commutes to work for me!  Anyway, my point is that being all bundled up like the image in this card is a common sight in the past several days here!

 Here's the wonderful sketch this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The image I've used is courtesy of Digi Stamp Boutique called "Winter Sophie". 

This week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday we welcome Digi Stamp Boutique as the weekly sponsor again. We love the creative and darling digi stamps available by Sally Ann through Digi Stamp Boutique and her generous gift of 6 free digi stamps to the grand prize winner of the sketch challenge this week.  

This cute image was just begging to be glittered up and that's what I did using Stickles to set off the hat and boot trim and the snow. I also used it on the edge of the image panel to draw some definition to this panel. The cap, scarf and mitten embellishments are from Momenta and coordinate perfectly with the KaiserCraft DP I used from "Christmas Carnival Collection". 

For more inspiration, be sure to visit Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see the other design team creations. We extend a warm welcome to you to join the fun this week in the sketch challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!

She is just darling!! I love the colors and her added sparkle. Hope all is well in your part of the snowy world. We have had a very strange winter in Canada. Last night driving home from work we had freezing blowing rain. I am not looking forward to this mornings traffic.

Have a great week!
Deanne :)

Hi Sharon. This is one of my favorite images. It is one I used last year. I love how you used glitter around the edge of your image. It give it such a nice effect. Your colors are perfect. I do love those fun emblishments. Where did you find such cute brads.
My daughter lives in up state NY and they are getting hit really hard with snow right now too. She told me today that they finally got a break in the snow for a little bit. I don't enjoy being that cold any more...I use to love the snow. But now I just love the warm weather where I live now.
Have a great week. Hope it warms up a bit for you!
Hugs, Nancy

Hi Sharon, I just love your card, she is just so cute and I adore your colours. Sorry I can't imagine what it must be like bundled up like that with all that clothing on just to go and do some shopping in your neck of the woods. In the winter here where I live it's jeans, boots a long sleeve tee and maybe a jacket scarf and gloves to keep your fingers warm but not very often only if its getting colder. I own an overcoat but can't remember when I last wore it mybe in England one Christmas. It's very warm and sticky here we are thinking of having a swim to cool down.
Take care
Hugs
