FOSTV-Sketch Challenge


This week's challenge at Friends of Speedy TV, challenge #29, is a sketch challenge.



As you can see, I decided to make a Christmas card and not in traditional colors. I am using a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co., Peaceful Nuthatch. I really like this sketch. I'm using strips of cardstock and not ribbon. I made the circles punches, using an oval for one, circle for one, and a star for the other.

We would love for you to join us this week. The stamp set to be given away for this challenge to some lucky winner is What A Fox.

Recipe for my card:
Stamps- MFP Peaceful Nuthatch
Paper-Designer paper is Fancy Pants Designs/Christmas Magic
Accessories-EK Success Paper Shaper/Star, Copics, Stampin'Up! oval scallop punch, Fiskars Cameo Appearance ex large squeeze punch

This is gorgeous, Brenda! I love blue Christmas cards! I think this is so elegant and the nuthatch is beautiful!

I never stopped making cards just didn't have time to visit blogs. Made Jim a card every day for the 12 days he was in the hospital.

WOW 11 days over 100 is brutal. We got up to 105 and over 100 for about a week but no humidity, for all our complaining we were blessed. It's finally gotten cooler but still having lots of thunder and lightening storms. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Hugs
Bernie
