Retrosketches #91

Every year I like to make a few Christmas cards with non-traditional Christmas colors.  Here she is for the year.  I was going through all of my holiday papers that I have stashed away through the years and this paper just popped out and I decided that I had to use it.  I also had some random stamps that I purchased after the holidays last year and I finally got to ink them up.  On the inside of the card I trimmed the tree line of one of the rows of trees and lined it on the bottom of the card.  I based this card off of the sketch from retrosketches.

Unscripted Sketches #232

I am on a holiday card making mission.  I thought I had some cards stashed up for the holiday season but it looks like I only have six.  Not good enough... Here is one of many for the day and I was able to incorporate the sketch from Unscripted Sketches challenge.  I am loving the new stamp set - Christmas Messages.

Party Time Tuesdays #147

I have not entered a PTT challenge in a very long time, maybe even the term of a design team member. So, I decided to make a point to create a card for the latest challenge.  It isn't much and I had a hard time finding these colors but I will say the colors a are very fun.

Thank goodness, I'm back in my craft room!

I have not been in my craft room since the flood in September.  We have been so busy at work that I have been exhausted for the last two months.  I go to work and I come home and sleep.  I think we ate out in the last two months more than ever because we didn't have much food in the house or I left work so late we were too tired to even attempt to cook something.  I've been asked a lot lately what have I been working on and I seriously had nothing new to report.  I decided that it was my mission today to make it back in the craft room and work on some holiday projects and cards.  I ordered some Fall stamps a while back and unpacked them today.  I decided that I needed to break them in and the colors from the colourQ challenge matched my Sweater Weather DSP perfectly so I decided to roll with it.
