Friday Sketch challenge 83.

Hi everyone

Roll on the weekend... I have a rare treat next week too - a whole week off (except for Thursday) when I can spend time with my little one, and some quality time in my beloved craft room.  bliss!  I have loads of projects I need to make as both gifts and cards for friends and family - so I need to get cracking!

Its our fortnightly challenge time again at Friday Sketch Challenge, this time the lovely Lizbeth has created this sketch:

And the lucky winner will get a Christmas surprise box as supplied by Christine - our DT Co-ordinator. got to be worth a go hasn't it?? - and its a great sketch.

Here's my take on it.

I used a stamp fairy image and coloured her with promarkers before fussy cutting her out..  I then used my dies to create the oval and the poinsettia flowers/greenery.  The sentiment is part of a die cut and stamp set from marianne designs.

The back ground papers are a combination of a docrafts paper pad and digi printed torn strips (left over scraps)

I'd like to enter this into:

Addicted to stamps and more - make your mark
love to create - make it for Christmas
Love to scrap - say it in colour (I used green)
crafting by design - Christmas

See you Sunday and hopefully next week too, but if you've landed here now - please leave me a message, it makes my day to read them!
