HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Whether or not you've already celebrated or even if this isn't a holiday you celebrate where you live I think we all have things to be "Thankful" for in our lives so this wish goes out to everyone.  Thank you all so much for your faithfulness in visiting my blog, for you wonderful comments and for you friendship and continued support.  You all mean a lot to me and for that I am thankful.

So today it's actually Friday in Australia and time for the newest Annabelle Sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch:

As you can tell with my card I rotated the sketch to fit my image.  Isn't it great that we can do that!

I started off with a Card base of Old Olive layered with Cherry Cobbler and Designer Paper from Basic Grey.  I've been using up a lot of my old papers rather then buying new ones.  The stamps I used are from last year's Christmas release, (Wise Men).  I silver embossed the Baby Jesus and the Sentiment and then used Copic Markers to color in the image.  The star was done using an SU Crushed Curry Marker.  I added an embossed strip of Cool Caribbean and some Silver Sprinkles to complete the card.  The focal image was raised with foam mounting tape. - Now it's your turn to try this sketch out.  You have a month to try this challenge or any of our other weekly challenges.  You can even combine them.  One lucky participant will receive a $20 Gift Voucher to the Annabelle Store.

Take care and have a great day. - We've had an early winter here and it's very cold so I'm staying inside where it's nice and warm.
