Sketch Saturday

Just to say thank you to all of you who have left kind comments on my blog. I really appreciate them and the time you take to have a look at my cards.

Well, this is my card for Sketch Saturday.

I have used a stamp from Lizzie Anne Designs and coloured Santa in with promarkers and lots of stickles. He is very sparkly!

I then cut circles with my quickutz dies and added added twine inbetween the layers.

The cardstock I have used is American Crafts Christmas collection. The cardstock is textured and very similar to Bazzil but comes in handy colour families. The DP is 'Dashing' from SU.

I cut that into 4 squares and added faux stiching ( which is a bit ropey on this card!). I also added photo corners, buttons and ribbon. I don't have a handy ribbon punch, so I just slit holes with my craft knife and threaded my sentiment through. The sentiment is also from SU.

I have chalked around most of the edges with brown chalk for an aged feel.

You know how sometimes you make a card and you keep adding bits to it...then whoops, it is a bit too much. I think this is how I feel about this card. But hey ...that is how it is going to stay. I'm on a roll of making Christmas cards for this weekends upcoming craft fair. Lets hope the folk visiting are in a Christmassy mood!

Oh just to show you all what showed up up our way last night.....
It might have looked nicer if I captured the photo before the boys ran all around the garden...but October!!!! What is going on?????

Have a great evening folks,

Send some off to us - we need it in Sweden now, since it's soooo dark outside these days. We had terrible rain and hail yesterday evening, but no snow. The card is fab and goes well with the snow. Kram - Anki

I think your card is well balanced I really like how you have done the greeting.
Gorgeous card as ever.

You got a bit more snow than us.
But your area inland normally does.
I used to live there when I was 2.

A wonderful sparkly and gorgeous card Judy! Brilliant image and colouring. I love the little stitching detail too. Looks like you had quite a snowfall too. I was amazed that my Mum and Dad who live not too far from us also had some snow the other day! Chris x
