Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer...

Happy Saturday, peeps! It's that time again...this time for a Bella-rific Sketch for You to Try! And this week, there's an extra incentive to play with us....a PRIZE!! As you surf all the SFYTT girls blogs, you'll notice that we have all used holiday themed stamps from Stamping Bella. Emily was generous enough to give a $15 shopping spree to a lucky winner who participates in the sketch using any stamp from Stamping Bella. You don’t have to use holiday image, but if you have them, why not? Jen will announce the winner on her blog next Saturday.

Here's my card, made with my usual Sketch Modifications *wink*
I knew I wanted to use my new Santa's Clothes a Dryin' image, so I smurshed and stretched the sketch to accommodate it. I stamped the image twice on hot press watercolor paper and watercolored the clothes with my Peerless Watercolors. After they were dry, I cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals onto the other piece that I had watercolored a background only along wtih the poles. With my rectangle Nestabilities, I cut the image out and added a red scalloped mat. For the circles on the side, I decided to use these cute Red Polka dot designer brads. Then to finish it off, I added the Brrrrr! sentiment from Poochie Christmas set from The Cats Pajamas.

To see more fab creations using this sketch, check out Jen's card and Suzanne's on Jen's blog...WOWEE yall rocked this one! Amy R., Amy S., Carole, and Susan have also rocked the sketch, so check theirs out! As always, don't forget to use the keyword SFYTT on SCS so we can all see your lovely creations. 

Ok, I am being dragged away to clean the house *grumble* but hopefully I'll get some stamping time since it's raining outside. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and for those in the path of Ike...please stay safe and know we're thinking of you!!
