Stocking Puppy

Welcome back my friends and followers! Hard to believe it November now - the days are just flying by and pretty soon Christmas will be here. So I've created a Christmas card to inspire you to play along in the new sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Here's the sketch for this week.  It's a blast from the past sketch - one of our favorites being repurposed from Week 101 when it originally appeared back in May 2011.  I like the main image panel off-kilter - it adds more interest that way.

Our sponsor this week is Melissa Jenkins, the owner and illustrator at Meljen's Designs. We love the sweet, whimsical images that Melissa creates. The grand prize winner of the challenge will receive four non-colored digis of their choice from Meljen's Designs. A fantastic prize package - thanks Melissa for your generous sponsorship!

I chose this darling little dog image from Meljen's Designs called "Stocking Puppy" to create my Christmas card. He is such a happy thing! He was brought to life with Copic markers, and the image was enhanced with stickles to make it sparkly and a dab of crystal lacquer to his nose. The papers are from My Mind's Eye "Merry Little Christmas" collection. The sparkly and silver brads are Stampin' Up.

Now join us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see all the adorable cards made with images from Meljen's Designs - all created to inspire you to play along with us this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
