Sketchin' all the way

I really love this sketch from Jingle Belles because it was so easy to come up with a card using it. I only had about 15 minutes and managed to come up with something in that short amount of time, just pulling from some of the first scraps I came across right away. Maybe not terribly creative, but I like it!

Vintage Christmas!

Just got back from a fun vacation with the family, theme parks and beaches, always a good choice with teenage boys! Upon return, a skunk sprayed one of the dogs...not so fun.
Happily, I had fun making another Christmas card as I am determined that I will not have to make a bunch in a hurry this December! This is my take on the Vintage Christmas challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round. I scanned a page of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas", but it's hard to read on the computer screen. It starts with "So up to the rooftop the coursers they flew".
Also submitting this to the "In Stitches" challenge at Card Crafter's Challenge, which I just came across. I am not that great at stitching on cards, but I love the effect so I keep trying! And finally, submitting to Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Challenge Extra, Anything Goes, as long as it's Christmas.
Thanks for dropping by!

Ribbons and bows

Wow, 6 weeks since I posted here or Facebook; even for me, that's a long time! I've been making cards, even keeping up with some challenges, but haven't taken the time to photograph or post.

So here' the first card I've photographed in over a month...this is my take on the current Jingle Belles challenge, to make a card using ribbons. As always, I love seeing what the Belles post and had a ball playing with ribbons and pieces of paper!
