Bloggers sketch


My internet has been giving me a hard time. On and off....is it me or is it Qwest....? We don't know. I blame them, they blame me. Either way, it has kept me from being consistent on some web items like the bloggers challenge.
This week our challenge is in the form of a sketch.
I love sketches. It gives me a base to go from. I can just add my own touch to it then.
As soon as I saw this one, I knew I wanted to use the new stocking set and punch from Stampin' Up! I love it! Of course, it is not available til Sept 1st.....but you can book a workshop with me and I will bring it and let you use it! Sept is right around the corner! I also decided I wanted to use my snowflake die instead of a circle in the background. I don't know if this card turned out 'exactly' how I wanted....but it does have some sparkle and I do love that! The edges of the stocking as well as the red strip along the bottom are from the Red Glitter paper. I LOVE it! I stamped JOY with Real Red and added a fun button to the O. A 1/8inch hole and some linen thread and it is done! I originally started out making a square card but my JOY wasn't enough to fill the card. wow...does that have a double meaning? lol maybe!
Enjoy! And check out what the other bloggers did with this sketch using the links below.

This is really cute. I love the idea of the snowflake instead of the circle (I never seem to think outside of the box like that).
