Hello!  I hope the summer heat isn’t getting you down.  Thinking about Christmas is a good way to beat it!  The team at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown has a rare fifth Saturday of the month in June, so we’ve come up with a new challenge idea – “Pick a Previous”.  This time we’d like you to choose one of the previous sketch challenges that have been presented at 52{C}CT, and use it to create a Christmas card.  A listing showing all of the previous sketches can be found at the Sketches Archive tab on the challenge website.

I’ve chosen Sketch #6 from June 2012 for my card.  I’ve stretched it out into a rectangular format.  I’ve been wanting to use this roly-poly penguin image for a while, and he’s finally making his debut on my blog today. The pearls in the corners of the image panel started out white, but I used my black Copic marker to make them better color-coordinate with the card.  And now I have another Christmas card to add to the pile I’m accumulating to send to Operation Write Home.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Go check out what the other design team members have created and give them a little blog love, too.  Then join us in our challenge!  You can link your work at the 52{C}CT website until 1:00 pm eastern time Friday, July 5.  We’d love to see what you make!
