Jessica Fick, the Design Team Coordinator for GinaK Designs has issued a challenge to all of the past and present team CSS team members to make a Christmas card with one of these sketches:
We know you're going to LOVE what everyone has designed for us tonight!
This sketch just had me thinking of a snow globe, so it was the perfect time to ink up this shy little snowman from Rupa's Winter Friends! It would have been fun to make a shaker but I am completely out of crafting plastic (more is on the way, whew!!) so I made do by die cutting a circle from Pure Luxury White that I'd stamped and colored, sponging around the edges with blue, and then adding a little pile of Star Dust Stickles to the bottom and gluing some clear microbeads and findings Donna gave me long ago swirling around him like he was just shook up! No shaking required! DP is Basic Grey June Bug (plaid) and Emily's Vintage Holly Quarters, I love this snowflake pattern she created. Base is Rocket Red. I came this close to trying to "free cut" my own little base for the globe, when I noticed how much better one of the Fancy Tags in Good as Gold would look!
A little candy tonight too! Nina Brackett is giving away one of my "Hip to Be Square" sets (thank you, Nina!) to one randomly chosen person who leaves a comment on ONE of these blogs in the hop, (only Nina knows which is the lucky blog!), so be generous with your comments if you want to win! Thank you in advance for taking the time to comment, it means so much to all the designers who work really hard on creating things for your inspiration! :)
Now, here are the links for GinaK's Current CSS Team Members:

All of these gorgeous cards from the entire team will be added to the StampTV gallery throughout the next few days with the tag cssjf1 (which stands for center stage spotlight jessica fick 1)
These sketches are also our sketch challenge for this week, so be sure to check out all the information in the discussion in our Challenge group over on StampTV Thursday morning. We'd love to see your cards with the sketch too!
Enjoy hopping! Thanks for dropping in! :)
