Card Sketch December #4

Wednesday, December 26, 2007

Happy post-Christmas day! In the UK (and I think Australia/Canada) it's called Boxing day, and we get another day off! Maybe I'm still feeling that because today I totally just do not want to do anything. Of course it could be something to do with the fact that I didn't get to bed till 1.30 this morning too! Well if YOU want to do something a little creative how about this weeks sketch? As usual the digital template can be downloaded here.

I admit to rushing around this morning finishing off my card and taking photo's. I've gone from being completely organized to disorganized in a matter of days! Holidays do that I guess. In my quest to USE stash this is all products from my supplies!!! Yeah notice the co-ordinating envelope again. Don't seem to be able to stop with this trend.

Supplies: Paper: DCWV; Ribbon: MM; Cardstock: DCWV; Rub-on: JoAnns; Deco scissors & hole punch: Fiskars

I hope to be issuing lots of challenges in the coming new year for using your stash, so keep your eyes peeled for new challenges, new sketches and the latest news in the New Year!!! Also don't forget today is the last day for submissions to the card sketch team, details here.

Cindy opted for digi this week! Love this kit she used. Great use of elements and stitching. Happy New Year everyone!

Digital card by Cindy Gilchrist
Supplies: Digital Papers and Embellishments from "Countdown" by Dani Mogstad, Digital Staples and Stitching by Dani Mogstad.

Another New Year card! Jolene went for glamor and glitz with her card, and it screams FUN! Loving the shimmer and the fun trim!

Card by Jolene Johnston
Supplies: Die Cuts With a View premade glitter card and All Dressed Up papers, StazOn and Ranger Juicy inks, K & Co. bling, Patons fiber, Autumn Leaves stamp, Stickles, Sakura gelly roll pen

Kelli opted for a minimilistic card using a solid background and I love it! Totally how I envisioned the sketch. The brown really pops off the white and the arrows are such a perfect touch! Love it!

Card by Kelli Smith
supply list: Luxe paper, magistical memories arrows, stampin up thank you stamp, stampin up flower punch

Mums card this week. Love how she pulled the colors from the patterned paper, and the Tigger embellishment is adorable! Great card Mum. She also chose to rotate the sketch which with the busy patterned paper works well.

Card by Linda Flinders

I just adore this card from Pearl! The colorful strips against the solid paper just really POP! Isn't that Santa adorable? Again just a great card!!!

In Ireland the 26th is called St Stephens and is always a holiday as well. Occasionally depending of how Christmas days falls the 27th is also a holiday, but there is very few people working even during that week as many people take some days of holidays to be off from the 24th to the 2nd or 3rd of January. :)

Many thanks for the new template and for sharing the cards with us. :)

Have a great time celebrating and Happy New Year!!! :O)
