Welcome to another challenge at Crafting When We Can.  Today we are being sponsored by 

Dilly Beans Stamps

We are having one of my favorite challenges:  a sketch.

I like sketches because they give inspiration.  I don't think I could have come up with this layout on my own.  Thanks Ang it's great!

My image from Dilly Beans Digi Stamps is called Mimi's Candy Cane Framed.  Isn't she just adorable!  When I saw her I couldn't help but think of little Cindy Lou Who.  So with that in mind I wanted to do something that would fit into Whoville.  I know she doesn't really look like a Who but that's what I thought of when I saw her.  

I colored her with Copic, Stampin' Up and Whisper Strokes markers.  She looked like a green hair kinda girl so I thought I would go with some non-traditional color schemes too.  The papers are from Bazzill, Create with TLC, Papercraft Inspirations, Paper Pizazz and some generics from my stash.  The snowflake punch is a new one I got from Martha Stewart.  I've used it a couple times now.  Just loving it for embellishing.  Lastly I have added some Liquid Applique and Stickles.

Please hop over to the Crafting When We Can blog and see what the other girls have created for you.  Don't worry, since this is a fortnight challenge you have two weeks to create your card.  Christmas can be enjoyed and you still have time to craft.

These are the challenges I have entered:

Stamp and Create - Sparkly Christmas
Sarah Hurley #75 - Christmas
Simon Says - Merry Christmas
Craft Us Crazy #33 - Merry Christmas
Di's Digi Designs - Christmas
