Wow, where did the week go??!! Well, I know where mine went…the summer schedule is in full swing at United Airlines and there is no rest for a reserve pilot!! In fact, I am out again today for another trip. Back to this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.
Our sketch this week is from Lesley Croghan of Always Playing with Paper. Lots and lots of potential with this one!
With my lack of time to stamp, I decided to go with a tried and true color combination that uses some of the new products from the Holiday Catalog. The snowflakes are from Snowflake Soiree and I think they are just beautiful!! The sentiment is from the new More Merry Messages that is in the main catalog. Along with the new stamps…Scalloped Tulle Ribbon. I knew I would love this immediately but I didn’t know how much I would love it. It is so awesome!! I didn’t do anything that required work and it STILL adds so much to the card (it looks a little dark here but in person it adds such pretty texture). I have all kinds of visions of bows and rosettes too. I added some pearls to finish everything off.
My first Christmas card post of the year…get ready, there will be lots more!! Today is the last day of my stamp drive so if you haven’t been able to join me yet, please just roll down and read the details.
Hope your week is great. Given the fact that I am gone, I suspect I won’t have another card for at least a few days. Thanks so much for dropping in today. See you soon!!
