Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge #15

This card was made to enter the Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge based on the sketch that they provided. The only other stipulation was that stamping had to be included. I used an old Inkadinkado stamp by Lyn Dillin called "Snow Friends". It was one of the first stamps I ever bought. The papers are Eskimo Kisses - finial and Eskimo Kisses - rooftop by Basic Grey. The sentiment is from one of Suzette's Christmas sets over at Crafty Sentiments. The embellishments are all from my stash.
It would be great if you felt like leaving a comment just to record your welcome visit to my blog and to let me know your opinion of this card. I look forward to reading them.

and now, as they say, for something different:
There is to be a Mini Blog Hop over at Crafty Sentiments starting at 06:00am on Sunday and finishing at 18:00pm on Wednesday. This will be a circular blog hop and you will be able to start on any of the 6 blogs to be visited. Why not start with me here. There will be candy somewhere on the way so why not join in.

and lastly,

Believe it or not, I was given this award by both Tracy at Country Mouse and Angela at Sparkly Cards on the same day. How fortunate am I?

Now the stipulations with this award are quite extensive. I have to pass it on to 5 people and I have to answer a longish list of questions (in one word if possible) so here goes;
