Sketch @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings all :) 
I am so sorry I am running late with this weeks card for

Please forgive me :$  I should have made this last week but I was hanging out with hope some new stamps would arrive by Friday and they didn't :( And then on Saturday I woke up like a mucus monster with a stuffy head cold and felt like doing nothing and had to go to work and then died in heap when I got home :(  But alas, I got crafting this morning and have a card to share with you :)

This week the challenge is ... 
A Sketch! 


And this was my take on it. 



 I am a little disappointed as this was not what was in my head :(  I had placed my hopes on my new Visible Image Stamps being here and had an idea all ready set to go.  So instead I had a play with some Kaiser rubon's again! (I know! these things are never ending!) I am still happy with it, and it just gives me another excuse to make another Christmas Card when my stamps do get here. 

Again, I have gone for the 'less is more' and that is a little ... unusual for me, but the sketch kind of called for it and I am liking the simple look at the moment.  Funny how our tastes can change around. 

Anyways :)  Please forgive my lateness and 
come along and join the challenge with us at
 Christmas Card Challenges
We would love you to play along with us!  
The theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.

I hope I see you there :) 
Thanks for dropping in to see me today :)
