Stampin’ Up! Another Watercolor Christmas Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today I am using the Watercolor Christmas stamp set again for my share.  Last week I used it in a color challenge and today the stamp set is being used in a sketch challenge.  This will be my last Christmas card of the season.  I hope that you all are enjoying making cards and that our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop has inspired you to create and get your hands inky.
