So, being that today is Saturday and the first one of the month, we're challenging all of you with a fun sketch over at Just Us Girls! Andrea whipped up this very cool sketch...WDYT?!
I also used my new MTME Brisk Breeze, Pretty Printables digital paper pack. When I designed this pack, I used colors that would come close to matching the following SU colors:
Not Quite Navy
I have to tell you that the text paper I included in my different packs this month makes me start singing Frosty the Snowman EVERY time I look at it, print it, use it...doesn't matter. It just gets me singing! If you look closely you'll notice that I used random phrases from different, popular holiday caroles for this paper..."There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found" is a prominent one that stands out because it's typed in chocolate colored font. Who would have ever thought I would design paper that inspires one to create AND to sing along! LOL
I added my sentiment using Lil Inker's easy to use Sentiment Flags and die. This set is coming in handy left and right, and I suspect I'll be using it for a loooong time to come! I curled the flag on both sides simply by smoothing the cs around my index finger and thumb. I stamped "Winter Wonderland" from Lauren's MTME Dashing Through the Snow set. Perfect fit, don't you think? I added some random stitching using beige craft thread on all my layers, adhered some threaded buttons and called it a day in the craft room. I like that this card is sort of rustic, yet clean (my preferred style of papercrafting). Not sure who will end up with this one...I'm just adding it to my stash for the holidays.
Okay, that's all I have for you today. On a side note, I DID finish my flower from last week's challenge (I think I meantioned that in my CTD post)...anywho, I have been busy hanging out with a very good friend of mine who was our houseguest the past week or so, and I didn't have a spare minute to whip up another post. SO, I will try to post it this weekend ;] In the meantime, check out the other JUGS gals' creations for some beautiful inspiration (links in my left sidebar) and also check out our lovely November featured designer, Cheryl Rowley.
