Jen's Sketch Challenge 10-23-10


I added the snowflake brads and red Stickles to the wreath. I like this card so much better now!

Even though Christmas is still two months away, in the crafting world, time is quickly running out! I certanly am in no rush to get to December 25th (or for sonow, for that matter), but I do have to plan ahead when it comes to projects. I already have a couple of projects in the works that I'm giving away as gifts and I have about 9 individual cards that I need to create and have ready to be mailed and delivered by the big day. I am already feeling a little behind.....we always seem to have something going on and sitting down and creating is sort of last on the list. Things like laundry, homework, calling family, cooking, oh yes, that job thingy....all take priority. And that's ok. That's how it should be. Still, I wish there were just a couple more hours in the day some days.

I decided to use Jen's sketch this week to make another Christmas card. I used another adorable digi stamp from CC Designs. I absolutely adore these stamps! And, after I fiinished a lengthly argument with my printer (it did not want me to print on a paper size less than 8.5x11 but you'll be happy to know that I won), I had lots of fun coloring the design with my Copics. I popped in a movie last night (Valentine's Day.....sort of a disappointment) and sat and colored while my hubby played a video game on his computer and Kendall went and got the daylights scared out of her at a local haunted museum.
I also used my Copics to color the Prima flower and then spritzed it with Pearl Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. You can't see in the photo very well, but the flower sparkles and the coloring is so rich. I absolutely love it.
So, winter may come with Christmas but I am also looking forward to:
  • Our 5 year wedding anniversary
  • Making more fun crafting projects for my wonderful family
  • Eggnog Lattes from Starbuck's
  • It's a Wonderful Life, The Nativity Story, The Bells of St. Mary's, Charlie Brown Christmas, The Grinch
  • Mom's peanut brittle
  • Winter Wonderland at church
  • Remembering that day so long ago that my Savior was born in such a humble manner
  • Lights, oh so very many lights
  • The smell of pine
  • Snuggling up by a warm fireSupplies
