Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
Everyone knows turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.
They know that Santa's on his way;
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother's child is going to spy,
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.
And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although its been said many times, many ways,
A very Merry Christmas to you
-From A Christmas Song
Skipping Stones Designs has another fabulous sketch up this week as well as a Blog Hop to feature many of the wonderful Texture Sets from Skipping Stones Designs! If you are hopping along today, you should have arrived from the blog of Jingle! If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design. We've got a lot of inspiration to show you, from the regular team to our guest designers, sketch artist and crafty partners!
I received a little help from The Play Date Cafe when choosing colors for the design and The Paper Variety's Falalala Challenge of being inspired by a Christmas tune. Loved working with the Timeless Textures set, these colors as well as the papers from Canvas Corp in my design. What a way to make the season bright, eh?
Head over to Shannon's blog for some more Skipping Stones Design inspiration! I hope that you will be able to join along with the sketch this week, as always there is a fabulous prize up for grabs!
