Sweet Sunday....Hello

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:

I love this sketch, a great one to start out the new year!

I got this amazing Impression Obsession Snowy Branch Cardinal stamp for Christmas.
I love it and could not wait to ink it up.
I knew it would be perfect for this sketch,
I stamped the image onto some confetti cream card stock and colored it using my water brush and ink pads.
I used real red, cherry cobbler, soft suede and a bit mustard for the beak.

The base of the card is Cream card stock and then a layer of Early Espresso and the DSP I used is from a retired SU pack called Candlelight Christmas. I wanted a winter feel to my card but not Christmas. I used my white gel pen to color in the snow and added some stickles over it. It really sparkles but I could not capture it in the pic.
The little hello comes from the SU Hello December stamp set.

We are saying goodbye to a couple of our Sweet Sunday stampers this week.
No longer with us is 
Karen Motz-a sweet friend who always, always inspired and encouraged me.
Jackie Pedro-a totally awesome, generous friend who I aspire to be like.

Now let's see what the rest of the girls did with this fun little sketch:

Thanks for stopping by today
