CCT sketch. I went with the colour scheme of red, white and blue (the pale blue paper is striped) and used ribbons and star shaped brads so this card also fits with Meljen's 'stripes', Paper Play's 'stars and stripes', Aud sentiments 'food or drink' and Penny's challenge 'red, white and blue' themes.
Sketchy Thursday Sketch. This used Sandylion white and silver 'ice' paper as the background, shimery dark blue paper as highlights and die cut for the title (using a Sizzix alphabet), Silver peel off snowflakes, dry embossed snowflakes on pale blue card and a Whiff of Joy stamp coloured in with promarkers. The journalling reads 'Alex was very clear about how a proper snowman should be built. It should be made from three big balls of snow and have a carrot for a nose. It also needed eyes (we used fir cones), a smile and bow tie! Frosty became Alex's new friend and he was very sad when Frosty melted 7 days after construction'. This layout therefore fits with Daring cardmakers 'Something old and something new' theme - The old thing is the sizzix alphabet which I have had for years and not used for at least 18 months, the new thing was the whiff of joy stamp which I used for the first time...the layout also has blue on it (sorry, I couldn't managed the borrowed!). The layout also fits with sew many cards 'dry embossing', SCSC 'embossing', and the pixie cottage 'outdoor fun' challenge. That is all from me for now. I am off to a conference in Birmingham tomorrow and wont be back until Wednesday so will update then as usual.
Have a great rest of the week,
