I started by creating a background using a variegated wash technique that I learned in Deepti Malik's Craftsy class - Watercolor Cards Made Simple. It is so fun to apply a line of color at the top and then apply water line by line watching the color move down, fading as it goes.

CAS(E) this Sketch: Merry & Bright
For today's Christmas card, I decided to work with a charming set of ice skating critters. I picked the polar bear and decided he needed to be skating in the corner with a big open sky but then I couldn't figure out what else to do. CAS(E) this Sketch to the rescue!! LOVE their new sketch with the banner in the corner!
I love the little smile on the ice skating bear!
I am such a cold weather person. I am thrilled that there is snow in the forecast next week. Of course, depending on the source - it might come on Tuesday, or Thursday, or a snow mix on Saturday. That uncertainty tells me that it's not going to happen - but I'm waiting and I'll be smiling just like this little guy (but my ice skating days are long gone!)
