TTS #4 and i {heart} sketches #43

Happy Saturday!! If you are looking for my Sweet Stampin' post, please scroll down ;)

Last night I started coloring up this super fun image from From the Heart Stamps while cyber chatting with my good PEEPS, Leanne and Tamie

I started out with this gorgeous color challenge from 'Tis the Season....


I then needed a sketch and decided this one was *perfect* from i {heart} sketches:

 Here is my card using both of these jump-off point challenges:

The added challenge at 'Tis the Season was to add twine and I did that on my flag piece....the sentiment was cut out of cherry cobbler using my new Paper Smooches wise dies :)
