Stamps and Smiles, The Fresh Batch Sketch #44 and Day 4 of the New Digi Release

I worked quite a while coming up with my card for this week's sketch. I think the 3 circles had my brain thinking "snowman snowman snowman". I wanted something different and thanks to good software I came up with this. I love the sentiment and thought it would be neat to put something joyous in each circle. All these images are from Stamps and Smiles new Digi release this week. There is still time to join in the fun and we're even having a blog hop tomorrow! Stop by Stamps and Smiles Blog to get all the details! Don't forget to also check out all the wonderful inspiration samples the design team came up with for this sketch at The Fresh Batch!
This is the final day to take advantage of the freebie the box for that link.

Now for today's new release!

This fireplace image is my most favorite of the new release digital images from Stamps and Smiles. I added the stockings and trees to complete the image. You can see everything this set comes with at Stamps and Smiles. The options with this set are almost unending! It's hard to see on my photo, but the trees are raised up with dimensional adhesive, as is the entire fireplace. The logs set back a bit from the main image. I used chalks to give the pretty glow to the fire. My tree's ornaments are sparkly from Martha Stewart fine red glitter. Thanks for letting me share these projects with you! I hope you've found some inspiration.
