Cocoa Jacuzzi

Good morning and Merry Almost Christmas, Happy Holidays 
Happy Hanukah or to whatever you celebrate may it be bright and festive!
It is hard to believe Christmas Day is almost here.
It is the longest day of the year and the first day of Winter.
I must say, we are looking forward to the days
becoming longer.

It has been such a mild Christmas here.
What little snow we had is almost gone.
Mostly brown grass.
I think the last time this happened was in 2007/8
Let's get to why you are really here:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 & Guest Design Spot.

 Good morning blogger land!
Today, I am excited to be the Guest Designer

I was given two sketches to work with.
Kathie is an incredible designer of these sketches.
The fun part is you can chose to use one sketch or you can use both.
Isn't it great to have options???
They are simply fantastic and it was so much fun
to see what these designs inspired me to create.
Hope you like them.

Sketch #1
The image is colored using Copic Markers. 
I went to through my stash of older stamps
from The Project Bin  A Way With Words North Pole
All paper, punches, glitter are from Stampin' Up

Sketch #2
Copic Markers were used to color up this cute reindeer image.
This cute image is called Holiday Reindeer
The stitched square dies are from My Favorite Things Die-namics
All the papers, punches (arrows) and felts tree and snowflake
are from Stampin' Up

Please hop on over to their sketch challenge.
