SG8 and Award

Is this a great looking sketch or what??? Leigh Ann comes up with the best sketches...  I love this one...Here is what I came up with:

I just love this sketch and see myself using it again and quite possibly with my Christmas cards this year. It is a pretty basic card....the stamps are from the Holiday Cheer Stamp TV Kit.  I embossed the snowflakes and sentiment with White EP and added pearls to the center of the snowflakes. Sorry the top of the card is a little blurry, I think it was the light not reflecting well with the white cardstock. I tried several times and could not get it clear enough...

Be sure to check out what the other Sketch Girls came up with and we would love for you to play along with us over at the Sketch Girls Blog :o) 
Before I say ado...

Mary Anne gave me just the sweetest award. I so enjoy her blog and chatting with her over at STV...really have met a great group of ladies over there! So I am supposed to tell 5 things you may not know about me... Let's see:

1. When I was 6, I jumped off of a cliff holding onto a Hawaiians back into a pool of water on the island of Oahu. From the smidgen I remember, it was fun. My dad was a Marine and stationed in Hawaii.
2. I graduated high school in Okinawa, Japan (my dad was still in the Marine Corps)
3. I always wanted to have 4 kids and homeschool. Well, the Lord blessed me with 3 children (the last being a distant third and we are extremely blessed, but done in that department) :o)) Too old to do that again....being labeled "advanced maternal age" at 35, left me needing some serious therapy (just kidding, of course)
4. I love when I can stay in my pajamas all day, stamp and watch movies (especially in the winter when it is cold and I can have a nice fire in the fireplace and a cup of coffee). It doesn't happen often! :o(
5. I am not sports inclined at all! I enjoy watching others play, but when I participate people are embarrassed for me...just ask my husband! :o)) So I stick with paper crafting!

I know that these awards have been all over the place so will try to nominate some I think haven't received one yet.

Cat ~ just love her designs..they always inspire me!
Tina ~ love her very creative designs...and she is always so helpful when I have a question...just recently with a paper trimmer.
Melissa ~ love the way she uses color and dp...I have bought a few extra things because of what I have seen her create :o)
Michelle ~ my Aussie friend who has such a versatile stamping style
Shelly ~ new stamping friend who just amazes me with her projects!

Have a great day!

How lucky are you to have seen such beautiful parts of the world! As far as being athletic, we can be very energetic in our minds. You have the perfect family, Jennie. Have a wonderful weekend!
