It's beginning to feel like Christmas? I hope not I am just not ready for it. I love Fall and we still have to get through Halloween. But for some reason I have been working on Christmas. This is a sketch challenge from Stamping 411, HERE.

It is a nice simple sketch and I really enjoyed working with it. I don't have alot of the new sets from the mini.....yet! So I reached for some old tried and true friends. A personal favorite Snow Swirled. The card above is done in a Pink Pirouette and Basic Black theme with a little Vanilla thrown in. It was a colour combo challenge I saw on some one's blog. But I have forgotten where.(But I just figured it out...Stamping 411) I am going to get a book to write challenges, dates and where I found them. Organization is not really my strong point.

This card again using snow swirled is done in another favorite combo of mine Riding Hood Red and Basic Black with Very Vanilla. I really like the stitched rub on's (not SU!). If I ever drag my machine upstairs, I will sew on everything.



I think this is my favorite card. For me totally not a colour scheme I would use. Pretty in Pink, Old Olive and Night of Navy. But I really like it. I also flipped the sketch so I could use Christmas Collage. This challenge made me realize I need Taffeta ribbon in every colour. I guess I really just need more ribbon. :)
I am hoping to be able to get more stamped today. But my children are telling me I promised them baking so we'll see what happens.
