Wow! What a crazy week! I can't believe Hanukkah and Christmas have both come and gone and 2010 is bearing down on us already. Unbelievable!! I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday! My in-laws arrived (by the skin of their teeth!!) safely on Maui from the frozen tundra of the Midwest (Kansas to be exact) on Christmas Eve - just in time to join us for the past few days of amazingly BEAUTIFUL weather here on Maui! I've been seeing some pretty crazy pics of the weather some of you have been experiencing in blizzard conditions on the mainland and just can't even begin to imagine that!! Please don't hate me, but here are a few pics of how the Taplers spent our Christmas Eve morning...
If you're interested, you can see the rest of the pics from our fun Christmas Eve morning at the beach HERE on our family blog.
Anyway, on with the real reason I'm sure you're here...it's time once again for a Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Karen has another awesome sketch for us this week:
I had lots of fun with this one, creating this hybrid New Year's card with printed papers from the Time Flies digi kit by Dani Mogstad (Sweet Shoppe) and stamped sentiments from the New Year stamp set by Clear and Simple Stamps (the photo didn't come out very clear, but that bottom sentiment says "Happy New Year"):
I pulled out my new Fiskars Apron Lace punch again (LOVE that thing!!) and added some Hibiscus Burst (PTI) grosgrain ribbon. The winged clock is actually a digital embellishment from the Time Flies kit. Dani also has a coordinating Time Flies digital stamp set with this same image that you could print out and color with your Copics or colored pencils (I was just feeling lazy!!)
Be sure to stop by the other Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs to see what they've done with the sketch this week:
