A new sketch at a gem of a challenge

Good morning blogging friends! Well I'm off to work again (boo hoo) still don't feel 100% but it's work and I have probably only phoned in sick 3 or 4 times over the entire 8 years that I have worked there so why break a habit?!
I hope everyone else has some fun planned for the weekend?! Here to kick start us into that weekend is another fabulous sketch over at A gem of a challenge and it's a corker why not pop across and see it? We are also asking you to accompany the sketch with some stitching real or faux. Here is my interpretation...

I have used papers from my age old DCWV xmas stack and have used a doily from poppyscabin along with lace, seam binding and ribbon slider from Wild orchids. My flowers are a range from Wild orchids, Mulberry crafts and a local craft shop. My sentiment is held in place by a Holtzy memo pin.

My sweet image is santa Kaya from Pink Gem designs and she has been coloured with prisma pencils. My sentiment ticket is also a Pink Gem stamp and I have edged them all in worn lipstick distress ink. All my edges have been given a bit of snowtex and then machine stitched. Kaya has also had some fun flock added to her fluffy dress edges, cuffs etc.

I would like to enter this into Papertake weeklys xmas challenge, Top tip tues xmas, Stampavie and more anything goes, The craft garden xmas no red or green, The paper shelter pink, IDIC xmas and by the cute and girlie xmas girls.
Please check out the rest of the teams superb take on the sketch and we do hope you can join in with us. Janet also has some fab new digi xmas papers in store too!
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again folks hugs
