Hello! Happy weekend! Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps is sponsoring Sketches by Carly! You have 2 weeks to play along and one lucky player will win 2 not-yet-seen stamps.. Sparkle is generously donating Valentine's Oliver and Cupid Emily (they are uber-cute and will be released on 12/11!!). Carly and her mom, Kristine, have also played along this week. To see their fabulous creations and for more details (and the sketch), please visit Carly's blog here!

I used Caroling Josh for my card today.. when I first saw the sketch, he is what I pictured, so I ran with it. I paired him with some paper from The Girl's Paperie, Tinsel & Twig. Sentiment is from Winter Swirls (PTI).. I bet you can guess what song was stuck in my head as I was creating this!
