CSS Sketch Challenge Blog Hop

Hi there! Time for the CSS October challenge for Gina K. Designs. This time around is a sketch challenge, this wonderful sketch has been provided for us by Carolina, Thanks Carolina, I had a lot of fun with this.
You should have arrived here from the very talented Jennie Harper
 "Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, October 15."



I was so excited this last stamp release at Gina K. Designs, that when my order got here, I wanted to use all the stamps I received, I didn't but I sure gave it a big try. hee hee
Anyway I made three cards from some of the sets.
This first one is a delightful set illusrated by Theresa Momber " Let It Snow" by Gina K. Designs. 





Here is another one using Gina K. Designs "You Melt My Heart" I got this free with my order, check it out here for yours.






For my last card I used a wonderful set illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger "Beyond Baskets 2" and another free stamp " Wrapped In Love" both are Gina K. Designs.



I colored all the images with Prisma Pencils , the ribbon, buttons and Pure Luxury card stock is by Gina K. Designs. The ink is Vivid (red and green) and the black is by GKD. I masked the gift image and cut out the santa bag and placed over the boxes. Then made the little gift boxes out of scrapes and twine. The DP used is by MME.
Next stop along the is a super talented lady Cheri and to start at the beginning of the you can find it here at Stamp TV .
I'm pleased to say that I'm  getting a head start Christmas cards this year Yay!!!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
