Sketch Saturday #80 and Whimsy December Advent Event Candy

Hello everyone!

Today I'd like to share with you my DT card for Sketch Saturday (#80), which is also my DT card for the Whimsy Stamps December Advent Event

This week at Sketch Saturday, Jeanette has given us a wonderful sketch to follow, and the challenge is being sponsored by Whiff of Joy.

I have used my Whimsy N'ice Friends stamp, coloured with Copic Ciaos, and with a few dabs of Stickles added to represent the glistening snow!

As I'm sure you know by now, Whimsy Stamps is holding a December Advent Event and giving away a prize each day from 1st December through to Christmas!  Each day, selected Whimsy DT members (and guests) will be posting their special Whimsy December Advent Event posts, so make sure you keep checking the Whimsy Stamps home page every day for details of each day's prize and the URLs of where to enter.  So today (Saturday 5th December) it's my turn to host the prize which is Whimsy Dog and Sign AND Ruff Day Sentiments:

To enter the random draw for these stamps, please leave your name and your blog URL in Mr Linky below.  If you'd like to advertise this awesome event by popping the blinkie on your blog, that would be fab, but not necessary.  Please also LEAVE A COMMENT below, just in case Mr Linky has a wobbly and stops working (otherwise some entries may be lost, or they may end up in the wrong order, and I like to play fair!) - thanks!

You have 24 hours to enter this draw from the time of posting, so this draw will end at 08:00am (GMT) tomorrow (Sunday 6th December 2009), and I will use to draw a winner later that day.
EDITED: As the Whimsy Stamps home page post advertising this draw was a little late posting (sorry!), I am extending the draw another 24 hours, so this draw will now end at 08.00am (GMT) on Monday 7th December 2009.

There will also be weekly specials at Whimsy Stamps, so be sure to check out the Whimsy Home Page for this week's weekly special.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. The Pink Elephant ... Challenge #43 Color Me Wonderful : Use your favourite colouring medium - I have used my Copic Ciaos!
2. A Spoon Full of Sugar ... Challenge #80 Non-traditional Christmas Colours (no red / green) : I have used orange, turquoise, lime and pink!
3. PollyCraft Monday Challenge ... Challenge #29 Ria's Wonderful Christmas Time : Create something with a Christmas theme.
4. Creative Card Crew ... Challenge #39 Christmas : Create something with a Christmas theme.

6. Quixotic Challenges ... Challenge #5 Be Charming : Create a project that features a charm in some way.
7. Copic Colour Challenge ... Challenge #42 - YR04 RV06 YG03 : I have used YR04 and YG03, but as I only own Copic Cias sets 36A and 36B, I don't have RV06, so I have used some of the other RV colours I do have - hope this is okay?
8. Stamp with Fun ... Challenge 35 Christmas : Create something Christmassy!
9. 2RedBananas ... Christmas/Winter Card : To make a Christmas or Winter card!
10. Crafty Calendar ... Challenge 3 Winter Sparkle : Winter-themed cards and projects, with the added option of sparkle and bling.
