Winner and TMS with DRS!

Good morning everyone!  Welcome back for another Tuesday Morning Sketch!

Before I get into this week's sketch and card, I would like to thank everyone who stopped by and wished me a happy birthday!  I had a wonderful day spend with my family.

And now for the winner of my special birthday giveaway....
Random.org picked #13 - KY Fit Kitty!
Congratulations!  Thank you to everyone who left a comment, it make my day!

Now back to business!  We have a great sketch this week, and an even greater sponsor!
This week our prize is from DRS Designs!  We have a $10.00 DRS gift certificate for one lucky participant!

Now for this week's sketch!

And my take....'

I used DRS's Vertical Triple Tree on the main image panel.  Minimal coloring made this card quick,
I need quick right now since I still have not mailed my Christmas cards!  My goal is to have them ready to be mailed this Thursday.
Just a hint of color and snowflakes along the swirl to help give the effect of blowing snow.
I tried to create a feeling of a close up of the tree branch on the top image panel.  I used a branch die and small bird dies to create this little scene.  I stamped some small snowflakes onto the sentiment panel before stamping the sentiment.

Now for more inspiration, see what the other designers have created this week!


Now it's your turn!  Have fun, I can't wait to see what you create!

God bless!
