but let's get right to said sketch, because it's AWESOME!
see? told you! i realize you want to go make something with that baby RIGHT THIS SECOND, but first i'll show you my card, ok? (thanks!)
(patterned paper: we r memory keepers, october afternoon, daisy d's, sei; xmas light stickers: recollections (i used 2.5 packets!!!); puffy alphas: sei; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, uhu gluestick, 3m foam tape; other: jukebox graphic from t'internet & santa cut from a catalog)
i was going in a totally different direction until i saw this fabulous christmas jukebox graphic* that stef found; and then i remembered the fun santa illustration i cut out of a catalog, and thought "AHA! those would go realllllly well together!" a few glittery xmas lights and some puffy alphabet stickers later, i had myself the fun & festive greeting you see before you.
so NOW you should definitely hop over to the JINGLE BELLES blog, see amy and stef's gorgeous examples, and then plan your own version of world domination via the medium of christmas sketch cards! oh yeah, and while you're there be sure to leave a comment on ANY january post, because the big giveaway is ALMOST at an end, and you'll want a shot at that prize pack, right?! :)
*something that may well turn up later as the inspiration for a future JINGLE BELLES prompt; in which case, act surprised, ok??! :)
