Sketchy Return

I must admit that I just love this stamp sheet from Innovative Stamp Creations. The images are fabulous for paper piecing and they make the creation of holiday cards fun and fast. The dp is part of the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses pad. I colored the ribbon and holly with Copics, added some sparklers, did a bit of piercing and that is about it on this one. Great sketch, Rox!! And....for me a nice return to stamping after a week's vacation.

Well....I did get to the pool today, but somehow it was a bit of a letdown after my sunny and warm trip to Myrtle Beach. The swimming/exercise was the same, but the ambiance was a bit different. Oh well, a return to reality for sure....especially with the plumber once again working at the house this morning. We finally gave in and instead of repairing the faucet, we no have a brand spanking new one. Let's hope that solves the problem.
