TGF's 12 Days of Sketches: Day 1

Have you heard? Over on The Greeting Farm blog you'll find The 12 Days of Sketches Challenge! What a great way to keep our mojo motivated during the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season!

The color inspiration for my Pretty Hat Card for Day One's Sketch by Cindy Haffner comes from the yummy-licious Wild Raspberry collection from K&Company. Oooo, I just *love* all the colors in that collection and will be using more of it during these 12 days.

There are lots of distressed layers to this card as well as my favorites - pearls, pearls, and more pearls! Oh, and I found the peachy moire ribbon in my stash and thought it was something that Anya might tie in her hair!

So there you have it! Today's post is short & sweet 'cuz this girl has lots of hustling and bustling to do today. And tomorrow. And....

If you still need more motivation to play in this challenge, how about this: everyone who completes all 12 sketches by January 3 will be entered into a drawing to win the entire January TFG release! WOO-HOO!

I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit today. Happy creating!
