It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Morning All!

I'm still feeling VERY Christmassy at the moment (hence the title!), my head is racing with Christmas cards, pressies, loads of all I need is some time to put everything into action, lol!!  But sadly it's another busy weekend for me so not a lot of crafting time at all :o(  Although hopefully lots of fun :o)  I've got some paperwork to do for hubby this morning then off to the hairdressers (LOVE going to the hairdressers!).  Tonight my Mum and Dad are coming over and we're going to the local Fireworks display and then a take-away and tomorrow I have a netball umpiring course all day.  Then back to work Monday ~sigh~.  Surely there's some room in there for a cheeky little card ay?!...

Onto today's card for Sketch Saturday Week #128.  This week it's the turn of the lovely Leonie to host the challenge and her sponsor is Art Journey who are offering 3 stamp sets to 3 winners!!  So there's an even greater chance to win this week, what are you waiting for??

Here's my card:

Close up of Sledging Edwin, coloured with Copics and Coloursoft pencils...

Inside of card, sentiment is by Penny Black...

Side view, sentiment and Edwin have been 3d'd...

I've changed the sketch a little and used a Round instead of an Oval for my main image but I love how this card has turned out.  I'm going to give it to my Father-In-Law for Christmas.  Fred is (as are me, Hubby, Sister-In-Law, Nephew, Niece - we've all got good taste, lol!) a MASSIVE Arsenal fan and although you can't fully see it, on the Santa's wish list I've asked for Arsenal Slippers, Arsenal Socks and Arsenal Pants for him!  I think Fred would be well chuffed if Santa delivered these to him on Christmas morning (and quite possibly he will via my house, lol!).

Hope you all have fab weekends and get to see some Fireworks, my Mum has bought us sparklers and everything, I can't wait!!

Lots of love,

Hi Cazza! I just LOVE this card! The cute Edwin looks fab, your coloring is amazing! The most I like are all the circels and especially the one with all the snowflakes. It all looks so great together. Love the idea of the wishlist too!

Have a great weekend although you're very busy!
