Believe - AHSC # 192

Happy Boxing Day!

I hope Santa was good to you and your families. Santa was very good to our family this year. Speaking of Santa, I do have one last Christmas card to share with you and it features Santa front and centre. 




I had a lot of fun with this sketch and card, it was one of those less is more feelings. I used a PML card from the City Sidewalks paper pack for the striped background. The Santa is stamped on White Daisy and matted with Willow. Believe is stamped in Cranberry and the Santa is stamped in Black and Cranberry. The Santa and Believe are from retired stamp sets. 

We would love it if you would play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge we would love to see your take on our Sketch

Have a great day and if you got lots of crafty goodies, I hope you have lots of time to play with them. 

Happy Crafting!

Merry & Bright....AHSC 191

Hello!

Things are so crazy busy so the posts my slow down a bit with just a week until Christmas and the kids being home from school and while I may want to scrapbook the chances of it are pretty slim. I do plan on trying but being realistic....

Any hoots enough about that, here is a project I made today. I used the Flower Market cartridge to make the Poinsettias. Poinsettias are very dear to me as they were my mothers favourite flowers and our house always had one (or many) around the holidays. 




Products Used:

Paper:
- City Sidewalks
- Willow, Cranberry and White Daisy Card Stock

Ink:
- Willow

Stamp:
- Merry & Bright (retired)

Cricut
- Flower Market


Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. I would love to have you play along with us at AHSC, we would love to see your take on this sketch. 

Until next time, happy crafting....
