Mimi sends Seasons Greetings…

Today’s card is for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog.  Mimi is sending love at Christmastime!  I used Penny Black’s Royal Greetings stamp 4096K,  Hero Arts stamp C3159 Sending Love, and the stitching is from a clear set by Sandy Lion – Kelly Panacci Borders KPSTP4.  Mimi is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Mailbox blues are B30’s with some warm grays.  Greens are YG00’s and G99.  Reds are the 20’s, 59, E07 and some warm grays.  Hair is E30’s.  Skin E0000, 000, 00, 11. White flower soft on her hat.  The little heart on the envelope is a teeny  heart punch from a Fiskars handheld (paperboy type) heart punch. The tree charm “thing” is from Around the Block,  I think.  It’s old! Probably five years or so! The dark green paper is old PSX (Personal Stamp Exchange)… the tree paper is from American Crafts and I just purchased it this year!  How ’bout that! lol

Here’s a close up…

Here’s the sketch…

From the side…I don’t know why this tree embellishment was on my desk but I’m sure liking it!

I’m linking my Mimi card to the Stampin’ for the Weekend Challenge blog, HERE.  The challenge is Christmas!  At Penny Black @ Allsorts Challenge blog, HERE, the theme is Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  At Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog, HERE,  it’s a recipe.

Today and tomorrow left to shop the 10% off Sale at All That Scraps!  Info in this post, HERE.  Christine has added more new stamps!

Tree report… the tree is standing…still not decorated…but standing is good! lol  In looking at it,  I think the trunk is crooked and leans to the left.  I need to point that out to Tim and see what he thinks.  I’m gonna decorate that thing today if it’s the last thing I do!!!  I’ll post a picture then…I do love Christmas trees… just wish we could bottle up the time and treasure it a little longer.  Take care and good cheer!
