Saturday Sketch Time

So you guys are all done with your Christmas cards right? Me neither... I used Lauren's Saturday sketch to help me whip up a few more last minute cards.
Here's the first one... Isn't this little guy from Whipper Snapper the cutest?
I picked him up at Little C's while I was in Hawaii earlier this year.
I used the "Silent Night" patterned paper from the "Figgy Pudding" line by BasicGrey. I paper pieced the hat and scarf with the same paper. If you're not familiar with the paper piecing technique, you can check out a tutorial here.

Here's my second card...

Had to have this reindeer image as soon as I saw it! He's also by Whipper Snapper.

Hope you're inspired to create something fabulous!
Here's what the rest of the sketch team did:
Alicia, Dawn, Kim, Kirsten, Kristy, Maria & Tamara.

Have a super weekend.
I'll be back on Monday with some of my twisted Christmas humor.

Cute...I love that little penguin. My son "loves" the penguins at the zoo and I always say that they stink so he wants to stay and watch them that much longer!
