Another Sketch Card

I love to read Amy R's blog. She has great ideas and sometimes even a sketch!! Here is my take on her sketch:

I've been making a lot of Christmas cards lately. I do make all of our Christmas cards, but I usually make 5-6 designs and about 8-10 of each design. But this year I've been making a lot of single designs. I love the cards, but they would be too much work to mass produce. Right now I have about 25 cards made - about 1/2 done - and only 3 designs have been repeated. And I have only made 4 of each of those designs!

Stamps: Snowflake Spot from SU
Paper: White, Sahara Sand, Cool Caribbean (retired) and Basic Grey all from SU; Patterned paper from Basic Grey Figgy Pudding line
Accessories: Sakura Stardust pen (to add a little sparkle!), pop dots, sponge, CM circle cutting system and Nestabilities circle dies

On the knitting front, I've had to frog the socks I started for my dad's birthday. I was making them in acrylic and they were just coming out awful. I have since restarted using some Lion Brand Wool-Ease. The colors are not perfect, but they will be fine - I just need to let it go!

Knit on!

Lovely card...I really like the colors. I am so hopeless about leaving my Christmas cards to the last minute. I need to get busy and not put myself in a corner. I like to make them all the same but perhaps I should try something new this year.

You certainly are the crafty one, making all of your own Christmas cards by hand :) I have a hard enough time writing, addressing and sending them, let alone making them. You deserve a pat on the back :)
