Sketchin' and Stampin' with Little Paper Shop...

Hi everyone!

I cannot believe how FAST this past weekend flew by-WOW!   Did you all have a nice weekend?  I really have to say we had one of the best weekends ever.   We cooked, baked, I stamped...just kind of hang in your jammies and be a family weekend and it was AWESOME.   In addition, my two little MVP's had their VERY first basketball game.  It was ADORABLE to see how enthusiastic a bunch of 6 and 7 yr old boy were-it was like I was watching the NBA....ha!  Ok, well sort of .... ;)

Today we have another awesome sketch challenge at Little Paper Shop, designed by our own DT member and my wonderful blogging friend Cindy Haffner:


Here is my take on the sketch:


I think I am feeling a bit of a case of the "winter blahs" this week and although I ADORE making Christmas cards, I wanted something bright and cheery!  I used my {I heart} set, newly released last month at LPS along with some fun DP from my Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Kit (berries and cherries).   I think I accomplished colorful, if anything, haha!

Be sure to check out the LPS Blog this week to see what the rest of our girlies have been up to:

Don't forget to play this week, because ONE lucky winner will be chosen at random to win the {Merry and Bright} stamp set...JUST in time for the holidays!

See you back here tomorrow with a VERY Jolly version of Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge!

Hugs,
Jess :)
