Sweet Christmas in July

Happy Wednesday! Time to share our latest challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Another great sketch, don't ya think?!

Digi Stamp Boutique is our sponsor this week, offering our winner 6 digital images of their choice!

 All images/designs are created and copyright owned by Sally-Ann Hancock. My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too - often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy creating.

And here is my card, using a freebie image that was being offered last August. I love doing Christmas in July cards so of course I had to put him to use. A little glitter was added to his hat and boots as well as the snowflakes I had punched out in the corner. I even decided to hit the sewing machine for this one too, how I love the effect with no added bulk. Join us this week for a fun and fabulous challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

I'm entering this card into the Digi Stamp Boutique Monthly Challenge.
