2010 Christmas Card Challenge Week #7

This week's challenge: Sketch Challenge! Use this sketch to make any Christmas, Holiday, or Winter card. The heart represents an embellishment, so you can use whatever you want for that.


Since I made making tags one of my resolutions for 2010, here's my first one. I had a mini craft crisis, I ran out of white thread. So I switched to red...but that also meant I had to make all of my cards match the red this week! :) I do plan on going to Joann's soon, so I will have plenty of white thread.

Card
Paper: Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses
Stamps: CC Designs, sentiment is PTI
Snowflake Punches, PTI Buttons, Copics, and Crystal Stickles

Tag
Paper: Eskimo Kisses
Stamps: Amuse
Snowflake Punches, CTMH Brads, PTI Buttons, and Crystal Stickles

To get the full url, click the title of your blog post (which will load a page that has just that post on it), then copy and paste the URL into the Mr. Linky form. Thanks and please still post a comment so I know you added a card!

  5. Gorgeous! I had to take a closer peek at the bottom of the card, because I couldn't figure out how you got those swirlies in there so neatly...then I realized you used a punch on the pattern paper. It looks fabulous! Your tag is terrific, too.

    Thanks for the info on the book swapping, I may have to look into it. Once my local library opens back up (newly built larger building-so exciting) next month, I may just go back to checking out most books at the library, because like you, a lot of books I read just once. Some reference type books I do like to have to go back to and re-read, though.

  36. Hi Sparks!
    So I took your sketch challenge this week, but I made Valentines instead of Christmas cards. I hope that is okay! I won't feel bad if you delete my link if that is uncouth. :)

    It was really fun! I might have to go back and use a few more of your sketches.

    :) Nona
