The December SFYTT Is Here!

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday!  Can you even BELIEVE we are already into December?  Yikes!  I am 99% done with my Christmas shopping...well, Santa is (wink), so now it's time for the December Sketch For You To Try!  Check it's awesome (of course!).

All of the SFYTT girls are using a sponsor from this year for their card today, and since we are smack dab in the midst of MFTeasers, and since I simply ADORE MFT, I decided to feature MFT for my card today. I totally love how this card came that bad to say?  I used the SUPER cute Pure Innocence Snow Day from MFT and colored her with Copic Markers.  Her jacket and hat were paper pieced with the same papers I've used on the rest of my card, Lost and Found Christmas from My Minds Eye (love).

I cut out the circle with Circle Nestabilities and layered it with a panel cut with the Dizzy Doily Die-Namics.  The sentiment, "Snow Day" was stamped on a panel cut with the new Mini Tabs Foursome Die-Namics, being released on Tuesday (yay!).  I added three circles cut with Circle Nestabilities and then added three red Candi's (have you seen these) that I got from my LSS.  So fun!

For the inside I added some more patterned paper, stitching, and another sentiment from this set, "You Warm My Heart", which I adore.  

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:

1. The SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY {SFYTT} will be posted on the first Saturday of each month on at 8am EST and will stay open to participants until the last day of the month, unless otherwise noted.
