Sketch Frenzy Friday, 11-7-14 Happy Everything!

Hello & Happy Friday!  I don't know about you, but I am so ready for the weekend!
First, let's take a look at this week's sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday.

Our fearless leader, Kim Innis made this sketch using Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio program.  Thanks Kim!

I needed a card for my father-in-law, so I included many holidays on this one.  He is so thoughtful as to send birthday cards all year long to everyone he knows.  Since he retired I have been sending him books of postage stamps several times a year.  He claims it's the best gift.  Dad is also fond of drinks so I used the Making Spirits Bright stamp set from the 2014 Holiday Catalog.

I used my Blendabilities markers to color the images.   The candy cane drink is popped up with dimensionals.  I made a few mistakes when coloring the eyeball drink, so I colored it on a scrap piece of paper, cut it out and adhered it over the image on the card.  (By the way, all my cards look better in real life, so I have enlisted my amateur photographer DD Danielle to help me set up a "photo booth.")

Stamps - Making Spirits Bright, A Dozen Thoughts, Holiday Home
Cardstock - Mossy Meadow, Whisper White, Basic Black, Red Glimmer
Inks - Memento Tuxedo Black, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Mossy Meadow
