A Hanglar Holiday at Friday Sketchers #127


A very happy Friday to everyone...and welcome to the weekend!!! Isn't it wonderful!!! Gosh, we are supposed to have snow flurries and I am not even close to being ready for that!!! So will you please keep your fingers crossed with me that the weathermen don't know what they are talking about??

Today is Challenge #127 at Friday Sketchers and we are being hosted by Inge from the Netherlands who has designed such a fun and challenging sketch for us to use this week. I hope you will decide to join with us this week and show us your interpretation of the sketch. All rules are on the right sidebar at the challenge blog. This week there is a wonderful prize given by our sponsor, *Wink *Wink Ink.

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting and the DP is from the Fröjdefull Jul Collection by Maja Design, which was a special gift from the extremely creative and talented Gunilla. Thank you so much, sweetie--I just love it! All background panels were machine stitched. The darling image I used is a hÄnglar & stÄnglar cutie which I stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics, adding a bit of Starlight Stickles and Silver Spica. I added a little touch of Stempleglede florishes to the edging before adding a silver metal cornerpiece. For the horizontal I used a 1 1/2" Red Grosgrain and 7/8" Silver Grey Organza, adding a snowflake and bow with a dangling silver heart charm.


For the inside of the card, I simply used more of the same papers and details from the front of the card.

I hope you like my little creation and will be able to join us at Friday Sketchers this week. We would love to see your card using Inge's sketch!! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
Aud, Bea, Claudia, Inge, Janneke, Jeanette, Jorunn, Tanja

Thank you so much for dropping by to check on the happenings in my small world and I hope you will come back often. I will have a Maggie posting tomorrow and a couple of winners to announce this weekend. Be safe and have a delightful weekend, wherever you may be...Big hugs coming your way!!
