Freshly Made Sketches #117- a sketch by Amy

I was so honored to be chosen the "Queen of Clean" for Freshly Made Sketches #116. My jaw literally dropped open when I saw that I was chosen! I still almost can't believe it. 

I went with a Christmas card for this week's challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. I have to say that I am glad we are almost done with Christmas. I am excited for the Occasions catalog and making Spring type cards!

Here is my take on this week's sketch:

I used some items from the My Paper Pumpkin monthly kit (stamp and star garland). They are no longer available, but you can sign up and receive your own monthly kit. You never know what fun stuff you might get....

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp sets: My Paper Pumpkin Noel kit (no longer available)
Cardstock- Whisper White, Real Red, Red glimmer paper
Designer Series Paper-
Ink-Real Red
Other-Star garland (My Paper Pumpkin- no longer available)

Freshly Made Sketches #114- A sketch by Linda S.

I've had a nice relaxing Thanksgiving weekend. Probably because I didn't have to host Thankgiving this year! My mom and I went out shopping Thanksgiving night, which I have to say was a lot better than getting up super early to do it. I have about 98% of my Christmas shopping done, so I am feeling ahead of the game for a change. I made some time for card making this weekend too! I've made so many Christmas/holiday cards lately that I wanted to change it up a bit, so I made a Valentine's card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I also used a set that I've been wanting to use too, so that's always a plus! Here's my take on the sketch:

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp sets:Perfectly you (hostess set)
Cardstock- Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Designer Series Paper-Brights Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink- Melon Mambo
Other-Hearts collection framelits, Hearts a Flutter framelits, 1/8 Melon Mambo taffeta ribbon
