BEATE'S SKETCH CHALLENGE - AND A NICE GIRL NOMINATION

Yeah, I finally got to do Beate's sketch challenge - I had to miss the last couple because well, life got in the way - LOL! I have to say though, this one is my favorite so far - I really like this sketch! I used all SU! products and broke out one of my new holiday mini sets. I just love the Santa Claus and foresee a lot of stampin with this little guy in the near future! Anyway, here is my card. I hope you like it! Here is the recipe: (all products are SU!)

Cardstock: Rose Red, Dashing Designer Series, Whisper White
Stamps: Naughty or Nice

Ink Pads: Black Stazon, Rose Red
Accessories: Rose Red Brads, Liquid Glue, Dazzling Diamonds, Ticket Corner Punch, Stampin Write Black and Rose Red Markers, Word Window Punch
So, there you have it! Now, on to something that just tickled me pick - my bloggin' friend Barb so sweetly nominated me for the Nice Award! It really made my day! She is super sweet and wonderfully talented so get on over there and visit her blog - you will not be disappointed! And now, I have to nominate five stampers who I think are worthy of the Nice Award - gosh, just five?? I could name many many more. But, I have to follow the rules so here are my choices:
Kimberly because she has been such a terrific friend, cheerleader, and inspiration. She goes out of her way to help others, and is a great example of what kindness is all about!
Bev because goes out of her way to be nice and always has a kind word to say to others. She is truly a lovely person!
Laura because she is just the sweetest person! I love her friendly, heartfelt bloggin' posts and she is so helpful and pleasant! She is always so upbeat and she makes me smile.
Heather because she embodies the spirit of friendliness. She is very dedicated to her family and reminds me everyday how important that is.
Gina because she shows her giving spirit through actions that positively impact the lives of those of us less fortunate. I admire her very much!Well, like I said, I could go on and on but alas I can't - so those are my choices! I hope you all have a fabulous day and in keeping with the Nice Award, make someone smile today - you will be glad you did!
