Repeat Impressions - WHAT IF? Wednesday

It's Wednesday, and therefore we have a new challenge for you at Repeat Impressions!  Today is WHAT IF? Wednesday - a sketch challenge from Wendy, owner and artist of Repeat Impressions.  Here is today's sketch:
Please visit the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built, for all the details and to see the other wonderful creations.  But in a nutshell, here is what you need to do:  Create a card using this sketch, upload your card to your blog or on-line gallery, and link it to the RI blog.  One random winner for the month will win a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.  Definitely worth playing for:)  Here are links to the other Rock Stars' blogs:

I decided to make my first Christmas card for the year.  A bit of a late start for me!  I stamped the 2002-J, Holiday Lamp Post, found on this page, with Memento black ink and colored with Copics.  I added Star Dust Stickles to the snow.  I stamped the sentiment, also from Repeat Impressions, on to vellum and put it over my patterned paper.  My matting is Real Red from Stampin' Up!  The snowflake is a felt one, also from SU!  We'd love to have you join us!!!
I had stamped two lamp posts, just in case I messed up the first one.  Since they were both usable, I made another card with the materials I had out.  Here is my second one.  Similar, but different:)


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

This is awesome. I would love to have a lamp post like this. My grandma used to have one and their name hung below. Great memories. These are great.

I really do like both of those cards.

There's no time like the present to get started on the Christmas cards, and these are certainly beautiful for the occasion. I have a few cards made but I need to get busy on more. The lamp post is a very pretty image!

Very pretty, Lynette. I wish I could make myself work on Christmas cards this early!
