Hello friends!! Sorry about the long break. Pesky work and fun summer activities have gotten in the way over the last couple of weeks and I haven’t had any real time in the stamp room. GASP!!! So what to do when presented with a great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches? When it is a million degrees outside in July? Create the first Christmas card of the year, of course! I love this sketch by the witty and fabulous Linda Callahan.
As soon as I saw this one, I started pondering a meandering group of images on the diagonal. Somehow, these pretty little leaves and flowers practically jumped out of the stamp collection and a Christmas card was born. I stamped the images from WPlus9’s Be Merry in Momento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers using traditional colors. Something about the pops of red and green against the white base really made me happy. I confess that the sentiments in this stamp set are what drew me in and I LOVE this one.
Well, I’m back to my previously scheduled chaos. On the agenda today….back to school clothes shopping. For a rising high schooler and a rising middle schooler. Pray for me. *smile* Make sure you check out the inspiration from the team and I can’t wait to see how you interpret this sketch! Have a great day!
