Soft Pencil Thursday - on Saturday

Hello everyone. No, I have not fallen off the face of the planet, although it sure felt like it! Comcast was out in our whole area for over a day (what? me without a net connection?? HORRORS!!!) and then I spent the past 2 days taking care of two of my kids. Cody still needs some help, but Hannah, who had her bottom wisdom teeth extracted yesterday morning, is doing much, much better. Poor baby was in a lot of pain yesterday and didn't want me to leave her side. Today she just looks like a chipmunk. The dentist says her stitches will dissolve in a week or so. We're hoping she can return to school on Monday. We'll see.

This week we got the cutest image, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, to work with, and we were to use Christmas colours. A big can-do! I also chose to follow Sketch Challenge 257 from SCS, because sketch challenges are fun.

I wanted something puffy to use on their hats, but I don't have anything, so just used souffle ink. It's got texture, but not exactly what I wanted. I still think it came out pretty cute.

Thanks for visiting. Don't forget to check out the rest of the team. They're listed over on the left side of the blog.

If anyone has any advice on how to deal with a 19yo with Asperger's Syndrome, I'm open to suggestions.

Love the card! You are so awesome.
As for the 19yr old with Aspergers, I am not sure at all - I am having fun trying to deal with a 21 yer old with it.
