So last night I’m looking through challenges I have saved as favorites and come across 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge. The challenge this week is sponsored by Deedee’s Digis and the challenge is to use the awesome sketch as inspiration so I just HAD to play! When I turned the sketch on its side it reminded me of a snowman so I went with that. Then the sentiment would be on the side when you turn the sketch so I decided instead of stitching around the edge I would place the sentiment around the edge since the snowman is singing the song! Inside will say…and a Happy New Year!
