Happy Wednesday and welcome to a NEW CHALLENGE at THE PIXIE COTTAGE.  I am so excited to be part of the DT!!

This week, as always, we have a CHALLENGE CHOICE - Getting started with Christmas and/or sketch.  Thanks so much to our super talented DT leader Katie for her fabulous sketch.  I chose this week to do both the theme of Christmas and the sketch:)  Please come play along by stopping by THE PIXIE COTTAGE.   You have until Tues., November 8 to add your project.  You do not need to use a PIXIE COTTAGE image in your creation, but we'd sure LOVE to see one!!  All PIXIE COTTAGE images can be found at MICHELLE'S SCRAPBOOKING AND MORE.

For my card today, I used "Winter Hannah on a Bench" image.  I love this wonderful image.  It has been so long since I have used a rubber stamp other than a sentiment!  I used Memento ink and the details of the image came out so beautiful.  I colored the image with Copics and added Stickles and Liquid Pearl for the snow.  I chose Nesties to cut out the image, back and sentiment, which is from A Muse.  Papers are from Core-dinations, Bazzill and DP is from my stash.  I sure hope you like it and will come play along:)

Additional Challenges entered:

CLEAR IT OUT - Favorite Holiday (Christmas) and old supplies (sentiment stamp and Nesties)
DEEP OCEAN - sweet
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - anything goes plus bling
SWEET STAMPS - so thankful (peace and nature)
BY THE CUTE AND GIRLY - Christmas girls
CUPCAKE CRAFTROOM - sweet Christmas
