Happy December! It is cold and snowy here. How is the weather where you are? I hope it is sunny and warm. Today is also the first Saturday of the month which means it is time for the final Sketch For You To Try this year.
There is not a sponsor this month but Jen asked use to use one of this years sponsor's stamps. Also be sure you check out Jen's blog about the big giveaway that will be given to one lucky person who used all the sketch's this year. It is a huge prize package that includes Gift Certificates, Stamps and a year's subscription to the SCS Fan Club.
Here is the Sketch
This is what I came up with
I decided to use Ellie Walks Her Dog from Your Next Stamp. They were our sponsors back in May. I did not get a chance to use their stamps then but I won this stamp in the Back To School Wee Memories Challenge back in September that they also sponsored so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use it. I love this image because it reminds me of myself and my fur baby Lily going for a walk on a beautiful spring day. I started my card by turning the sketch. Next I stamped the main image on Neenah White Cardstock and colored it with Copics. After that I drew in the sidewalk and the grass. When I was done with that I matted the finished piece on Berry Sorbet cardstock and machine stitched it. The circle piece was cut from PP in that came from the Stella and Gertie Paper pack. The Background PP is from the Cosmo Cricket Uptown collection. The sentiment is from Fillable Frames #5. I finished the card off with 3 Hawaiian Shores buttons and more machine stitching.
There is no guest designer this month either but be sure to check out what Jen and the other sisters have done with this sketch too.
