Sketch & Stash challenge

LOVE this weeks sketch on the Sketch and Stash challenge blog, it's just my kinda sketch so you will be seeing a few more cards made using it. I love that it's left up to you to decide where to put the sentiment and embellies (seeing as I usually go way adrift when following sketches).motivet-boy-with-snowman1
I have finally inked up one of my new Motivet DT stamps, how cute is this little lad with his snowman! I have used some of the delish Blue Hill Studio Color Stories papers that I received in my last DT package from Create4Fun - they are not Xmas papers but thought this pattern worked great with the image and I love the rich red with a dash of blue (going back to one of my fave colour combos here).

Just a few punched snowflakes coated with Twinklets, some crystal brads and job done. Love love love quick and easy cards, especially at this time of the year.motivet-boy-with-snowman2
