FTHS#128 Deck the Halls

Hi all!  Happy Thanksgiving week!  I can’t believe we are already at Thanksgiving!  I used to be really strict about absolutely nothing Christmas before Thanksgiving.  I must admit to loosening up on that rule quite a bit – I don’t have decorations up (unless you count my USB Christmas tree and lights that are around my computer), but I have listened to a bit of Christmas music so far.  It’s hard not to be going for it when you are coloring Christmas images!

So for today’s new sketch at From the Heart/I {heart} Sketches, I used the November Stamp of the Month image, Deck the Halls Birdbrain.  This image just makes me giggle!  Have you seen the IKEA sale commercial with the lady running out of the store, arms full of stuff and yelling “Start the car!  Start the car!”?  This reminds me of that! Deck the Halls!

The twist of this week’s sketch is to use your favorite color. With seeing the sketch, I knew it would be shades of pink and I knew I would use my Vertical Stitched Strip dies. When I colored up my Birdbrain, I opted for warm gray Copic markers instead of my usual cool gray.  I love how it turned out!  She has a handful of pink ornaments.  Before printing my image, I added in one of the sentiments directly underneath.  She’s cut out with a Stitched Circle STAX die.

Hope you’ll find time to play along with us this week at From the Heart & I {heart} sketches!  Hope you have a lovely holiday with your families this week!
