Seems like I am running behind this week -- we were out of town for a few days this past week - as fun as that is - I am glad to be home -- working to get caught up on household chores and all of the OWH challenges. :-)
Sunday's sketch was interesting for me -- as simple as it was I found myself pondering what I wanted to create with it. I made one Christmas card and two birthday cards using this sketch. I also completed today another Christmas card I started on Wednesday for Wednesday's challenge.
It was cloudy here in the desert on Sunday (we don't get too many cloudy days) - so that helped me work on Christmas - I kept thinking it was cold outside with the clouds -- when in fact it was well in the high 90's. This morning it is a bit cooler - just 72 so far. Anyway -- I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for stopping in - I really appreciate your comments.
I used a retired SU stamp (Scenic Season) for the trees and sentiment - I took the liberty and added
some ribbon to add a little more sparkle. This would also work for our Wednesday's challenge
|I used SU new stamp set (Reason to Smile) and card stock on these two cards. I|
embossed the two darker panels with the embossing folder Elegant Bouquet, however
it doesn't show up very well in the photos.
|This card is for Wednesday's challenge - Christmas in July I used the bonus sketch no. 31|
(shown below) that was used in the July 4th Blog hop.
