Sketchy Thursdays on Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday everyone,

I hope your week is going well.  I am trying to get back into the swing of things.  I pulled a muscle in my back so I am very sore and very slow moving.  I hate it when I do this.  It happened while I was cleaning this weekend--that should show me not to clean. Right?

On to my  sketch challenge.

Sketchy Thursdays challenge for this week was an awesome sketch.  I just knew I had to do Michael on Christmas Eve.  Last week I did Jack so this time I wanted to work on Michael.  Michael had such a blast this year.  When he saw the presents under the tree he got so excited.  When he was opening his present he was just so happy.  I love to see a smile on his face.  When he finally had the wrapping off enough to see what it was he screamed  "ELMO!".  Michael LOVES Elmo.  I just  loved it.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my take on the sketch.

I used the Imaginisce Christmas Cottage line for this one. It shows Michael opening his one present on Christmas Eve. 

 Here is a close up of the journaling.  I simply punched a circle on the pattern paper and put the faux stitching around the edges.   I also used on of their chipboard shapes.
 Here I used the nestabilities die cuts and paper trey ink stamps and then put in some doodlebug rub ons to spell joy!
Here you can see the rub on stitching.    I used the gold stitching.  I also cut the tree from a piece of pattern paper.
cardstock:  bazzill and neenah solar white
pattern paper:  imaginisce
stamps:  paper trey ink
rubons:  doodlebug and dcwv

Well I hope everyone has a great day.   I will be back tomorrow with my first of my Valentine's day cards.  I will be bringing you 4 weeks of cards. 

Also you will want to make sure you are following me in the month of February.  I will be having 3 separate giveaways!!!! 

Thanks for stopping by and  I hope you have a great day!
