Sunday Sketches - it all starts with a sketch


 It's a very busy time of year at RoseHill. Custom illustrated Christmas cards are what keeps me busy this time of year. I love doing them, and seeing the products go from an idea to a sketch for a finished product, and eventually the finished card. It makes me feel so excited that my little design is warming the hearts of all who receive them!

 This year, I have been sharing the progress one of the cards that I have been working on on my Facebook page. It is for a family who loves their Scottie dogs. They also live out west in gorgeous Utah, so we have incorporated that into the card.
and today I am sharing the finished product below
with you all
and my friends at Sunday Sketches
See you there!

This is so adorable. I just love this card. Yes, you are so right. The most important part is the sketch. I am learning to take more time there and enjoy the process.
