Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Sketch Challenge

Welcome to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop...a super fun hop where I'm lucky to get to work with some fancy friends...who also happen to be past or current Stampin' Up! Artisans!  On the last Friday of each month we hop with a new challenge...and this month the challenge is a Sketch Challenge!'s our amazing sketch...

and here's what I was inspired to create!  

There's so much I want to say about this card!  First...the versatile and perfect!  And then....the little lady.  I love her...and in another life that's what I'd look like while I'm preparing for a family Christmas morning together.  Elegant...perfectly put together...and so full of the holiday spirit.  Yep...another life.  Ha! 

And then...I can't forget to talk about the brand spanking new Stampin' Blends I've used to color here.  Honestly...I prefer not to color.  I'm a stamp on colored cardstock or easy watercolor kind of stamper.  Until now.  I am smitten with the Blends..and I was able to easily complete the look I was looking for with just a few markers.  From here on out I'll be saying I used to prefer not to color! all of little lady's elegance I see her in a home in the country...and so...I chose Crumb Cake Cardstock for the card's base...and I added other tiny touches of country with Linen Thread and wood Hearts and Stars Elements.  

Thank you so much for stopping by for the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  I hope you're inspired to create something fabulous with our awesome sketch...and I'd LOVE to see it! it, using #fancyfridaybloghop when you share it...and let me or one of my fancy friends know!

And now...hop over to my see what my talented, fancy friend Cindy has to share!
