Bloggers Challenge 182



This week the Bloggers Challenge was a sketch challenge. (Lisa, this was a cool sketch.) I kind of started backwards with this one. I had this background paper which I really wanted to use. Even though it has a distressed look, it also has sparkle. Besides I like deer. For my image I chose this wintery scene from Heartfelt Creations. I thought it was the kind of place you might find the deer wandering about. Since I'm still working on Christmas, I thought the jingle bell punches worked well, and of course, the sentiment is definitely Christmas. I can't wait to see how the other group members interpreted this scene.
I came very close to not being able to play today. My Internet was down for about 24 hours. Six of those hours I spent on the phone trying to get it back up and running. Fortunately, as you can see, it was successful...draining, but successful.
