Another WOJ Christmas!

Now I love Katharina's sketches, so when I needed to make a Christmas card for my other Grandma, I headed right to Katharina's blog to see which sketch I wanted to play with! I decided on #27! I love the idea of working with sketches because then you kind of have a blue print of what you will be spinning off of with your ideas!
I used the WOJ stamp, designed by Elisabeth Bell, the Christmas Tree which I got from Loreen at Wish On A Scrap. I didn't think this image would be too terrible to color....but boy was I wrong! There is TONS of detail to this stamp, which I did love once I got going! I am not thrilled with my coloring on this one...but everyone has off days, right?! And we are our worst critics!!! I used DCWV Christmas stack paper, primas, and ribbon from my stash. The sentiment stamp is one that I got from my crafty Grandma!
Even though I wasn't thrilled with the outside of the card, I absolutely LOVED how the inside turned out! I have been seeing people make wreaths from their MS punches all over in blogland lately and thought I needed to try this! It turned out superb! Boarder punch is also MS! I love the gingerbread men on that punch!

I also came upon some more blog candy give away to share with you:
Hurry on over to Melissa's blog because she is giving away some candy!
And Sheetload is giving away some frosty candy because it's brrrr cold outside!
I have one more Christmas to attend tonight. This is Christmas with my in-laws!
Enjoy your weekend, and have fun stamping!

Gorgeous Kim,
I had to laugh when I read your 'write-up' - I looked at this stamp and thought - oh no - too complicated for Christmas when I'm always short on time !!
Love your wreath, it's beautiful.
All the best for the New Year.
hugs Heather xx
