Elf Wishes

Hello Everyone,
I am here today to share a simple card that I made following a sketch. It is another one for my Christmas collection.


I found these cute images in a lift out from a magazine that I bought just this past Christmas and I hadn’t done anything with it. I am trying to work through my stash of papers so that I can feel like I can get some new supplies this coming Christmas. To make this card I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday

So I had a lot of fun playing with this sketch. The background snowflake paper came from another magazine download but I thought it went well with the elf and gingerbread cookie. I decided to leave things quite simple this time because the sketch included banners and such. I hope you like my interpretation of the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought


Until Next Time,

Sketch Saturday #554

Hello Everyone,
Today I am bringing you a simpler card it just turned out that way as I was crafting it. It came out different to what I had planned but sometimes this happens while I am creating a project.


I am lucky that I was not needing to make this card for any particular occasion. I try to get ahead and make sympathy cards when I am not needing them. So when I found this image in my stash I thought that it would be suitable to make one. Then I found this sketch from Sketch Saturday and everything just came together

I think that this sketch could be used in either orientation and I will probably use this sketch again but the other way around. The papers that I used are from an older Kasiercraft paper pack called Tiny Woods. Because of the theme of the card I wanted to keep things simpler so I didn’t add the bow because I didn’t think that it suited.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I really appreciate all the comments, likes and visits to my blog please consider leaving something. Before you go though I would like to leave you with this though

Cats Return

Hello Everyone,
Yes those crazy happy Christmas cats are back! I love creating with these guys they always put a smile on my face. And this is the card they are staring on this time.

Don’t they just look like they are having such fun. This card all started with a sketch from Sketch Saturday

I have coloured these cats in with my Copic markers. The papers I have used come from Kasiercraft’s Mistletoe 6X6 paper pack. I layered everything with Forest Green Paper and the tags are made from Washi Tape first adhered to some white paper. So another Christmas card is finished and added to my pile.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. Please consider giving a like or even a comment I like receiving feedback on my projects. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought

a book is a dream in your hand

One of my other loves – being able to spend time reading. It such a wonderful thing being able to immerse yourself inside another world for awhile.

Have a Happy Crafty Kind of Day,
