The Pixie Cottage #49..Guest Sketch/Family Friends Theme

This is my second post for today, please scroll down for All That Scraps Winter Flower Challenge.

Hello Again and Happy Wednesday!

I'm back with a sample for today's Pixie Cottage Challenge. This weeks challenge is a guest sketch and the theme is family and friends.

I had a little trouble trying to incorporate the entire sketch onto my card but I made sure to include as much of the sketch as possible. My image, April with Hearts is fairly large and adjustments were necessary. Once again, I've combined the traditional Christmas colors of red,white and green with lovely holiday design papers, flowers, buttons and ribbon. In my mind, April with Hearts is giving a loved one her heart and wishing them love,peace and joy for the holiday season.

We only have a one more challenges left and you really want to make sure to get in on all of the challenge fun. Be sure to stop by the Pixie Cottage Blog and check out the design teams Family and Friends creations for inspiration and the challenge rules. We hope that you have lots of fun with this weeks challenge as we look forward to viewing your creations! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and for your wonderful and kind comments. Take care and have a beautiful and blessed day!
