1. First, you know what you need to do a couple of months in advance, you should not make the card in advance - you should leave it until as late as possible, the day it is due is best.
2. If a sketch is required, pick a stamp but don't try it for size against your Nestabilities die sets, that way it is more of a challenge when you find it doesn't fit any of them and you have to start again, but not before you have stamped 4 images on 6 sheets of card and heat embossed in an attempt to get a good one, and having cleared a space you should realise that there are bits of punch waste that you also need to clear, and while doing that you should tip up your newly opened embossing powder. Clear up the powder liberally covering your clothes, then for good measure tip the pot up again and repeat. Also your first stamping attempt should use dried up ink, so you have to do it again.
3. After that discover that the stamp was too big, and look for some you stamped last year that were the perfect size all the time.
4. Finally get your inky fingers all over your newly stamped image for a smutty effect.
So here is Lyn's sketch and a nice one it is too:

Hey, I just realised I matched the colours in the sketch drawing, which was not intentional and would not have been the case if the first image was the right size!
