Happy Mail (From the Heart Stamps image)

Hello, everyone!  A very warm welcome to my newest follower - Annelies - thank you for joining me!  I'm back today with a card I created for a sketch challenge, and I'm cutting it close - the link expires in just a few hours!  I used the adorable Winter Post from From the Heart Stamps, and I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils and added Icicle Stickles to the snowflakes and along the snow.

Yesterday I received a goody package in the mail from a challenge I won last month over at Cosmic Colours (thank you, Colette!), and I was soooo excited to get all the Christmas goodies that I decided to make a Christmas card!  I used just the papers on my card today, but you will be seeing more of my goodies on future cards!  I made the sentiment with my Dymo label maker and added ribbon, charm, and gems from my stash.  I die cut the image with my new Lawn Fawn Stitched Journal Card that I bought with some birthday money I received.  I will be 50 next week - eeek! 

Here's the sketch I followed from From the Heart Stamps I {heart} sketches.

  16. I love your color choices... everything goes so well together. I know what it means to CASE a card but what is it called when you try to CASE a bit of everything a person does. LOL!
