Sketch Challenges

Good morning!  Yesterday was a successful day shopping....have to say I really appreciate the stores that have 40% off everything...makes Black Friday much easier!  My mum and I had a great time.  About seven hours of shopping and lunch and a great deal of her Christmas shopping is complete.  Of course, this morning I continued shopping and hit Verve's Sale! 

Today, I'm taking the little boys out to see Megamind.  Looking forward to some yummy movie popcorn!  And then tonight we're having both sets of parents and Pat's brothers family over for dinner.  Pat made up his chili which is perfect for the cold weather we are having.

I'm busy trying to finish up my Christmas cards this week so that I can get them in the mail in the next week or I'll have tons of Christmas card inspiration.  First up are two challenges I haven't played along with in way to long.  CPS challenge...I love sketches!
Ingredients:  Stampin' Up Stamps, Whisper White Paper, Cherry Cobler Ink/Paper/Ribbon; Ranger Distress Inks; PTI 2010 Christmas Tags and Buttons

Next up is my take on this week's Mojo Monday challenge.  This Basic Grey paper is what I used for all my Christmas cards last year...still love the subtle color tones on this paper.
Ingredients;  PTI Twine, Kraft Paper and Daily Design Sentiments; Basic Grey DSP and Snowflake Die; Stampin' Up Almost Artichoke Paper/Ink and Tag Die;
