Color Throwdown and CAS(E) this Sketch: Noel

Although I truly cannot explain my thinking, I decided to rearrange my craft room this week - when I still have about 2 dozen Christmas cards to get out?!!  I moved in at the end of April.  It takes some time to settle in and different things have started to bug me.  Why do I have to get up out of my chair each time I need to use the Big Shot which is typically every single card (and often disturb the cat in my lap)?  Why do I have my Copic collection taking up room on my desk when I use them maybe once a week?  How stupid is it to climb up on a step stool for every photo, at least for a women of my age??  So I tore everything apart and it has unexpectedly taken me about a week to put it all back together.

Anyway, by the time I rearranged a place to take photos, I missed the deadline at CAS(E) this Sketch but I still wanted to credit their sketch.   I'm still in time for the Color Throwdown.

I'm working my way through products in my not-yet-used stash.  Today I'm using Hello Bluebird's Frosty Friends - although just a tree and the reindeer.  There are 3 snowmen, a bear and 2 penguins that most definitely still have to see ink!  They all have about the cutest expressions that I've seen.

There's a bit more sparkle on this card than the first photo shows.  Even this one isn't great, but if you click on it for full-size, you'll see all of the frost.
