Card Sketch December #1

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

It's Holiday Season! This month I thought I'd bring a little festive flair to the blog with some holiday-ish cards. Of course they can be used for non-holiday cards too! So lots of inspiration this week from the sketch girls this week both seasonal and non-seasonal cards :) This month also sees Louise Brigden on board as the Guest Designer this month, and she ROCKED this weeks sketch!

For the first time in a while, I did all the sketches, THEN made all the cards for December! I made all mine Seasonal so I could use them for family and friends this year :) Remember if you like a card design it's ok to make multiples of the same design! I do it all the time! Plus no-one will ever know if you send them to different family members/friends!
