     Hi everyone - hope your weekend is going well.  This is my 5th week as Guest Designer for the lovely Debbie at The Crafty Pad - how time flies! For this week's Challenge we are asking you to work with a sketch - full details, and insipration from the DT,  can be found by clicking on the link above.  The prize is a one-week GDT spot and a free digi stamp.  Closing date is Saturday 12th December. For my GDT card his week I have used one of  Debbie's Christmas Ted stamps and have paper-pieced Ted's scarf, and both hats.  Lots of Stickles and Glamour Dust has been added, and red stitching (a bit wonky, and that was before I had the wine)!!  The base card is Bazzill, the Xmas BP is Papermania Joyeux Noel, and the red and cream dotty is a freebie download from Shabby Princess. The double-edged border has been punched with a Fiskars border punch - goodness knows how the two edges matched up first time - miracles do happen !  The greeting stamp is from HOTP, punched out with the SU scallop oval punch. Six red Papermania Shimmer Dots added, but they don't show up too well on the photo. PS: almost forgot - Ted is coloured with Copics!
Look forward to seeing your creations for this week's Crafty Pad Challenge - lotsa hugs, Sylvia xxxxxxx
