I have two projects to share with you today. The first is my card for Sketch #13 at Merry Monday. Here's the sketch:
I made my card with a paper pack from Hobby Lobby called Magic of the Season. I love these red, black, white and ivory papers -- just something a little different from traditional Christmas colors. I also used an older Stampin' Up pack of rub-ons called Old Saint Nick for the snowflake and the tree border with the sentiment "May The Season Bring Gladness". I usually follow Lesley's sketches to the letter -- they are very striking without a lot of extras! Check back with me next Monday -- I'm excited to be a guest designer for Merry Monday Challenge #14!
Next, is a corner bookmark made for the weekly challenge at Joan's Gardens.
It was made by cutting off the corner of an envelope from that most sought after item -- junk mail! Both sides were covered with the red and then a bit of a border punch was adhered and then I added a little flower I cut out from a piece of patterned paper. Super easy!!
It's another beautiful day in my neighborhood -- hope it's the same at your house!
