StampFairy Challenge Sketch

Today's Ramblings: Back to work after being off for a week - boo hoo! We had beautiful weather the whole week and our city-wide watering ban has been "slightly" lifted. We are now able to water our grass seed so hopefully it will grow. We have been working on the yard for a couple of years now and just have a few spots that need some TLC.

Today's DT Challenge: The new theme at StampFairy Challenge is a sketch!

Since in June I only made two (or was it one??) Christmas card(s), I thought I better get cracking early this month.

I started with Toby Love-Notes {found here} and Christmas Sentiments {found here}:

I tried something new today, I made an acetate card. It was really fun to make!



Inside:
Card Ingredients:
StampFairy digi; Recollections cardstock; Gelly Roll white pen; Circle and Beaded Circle Nesties; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder; EK Success Snowflake border punch; Dress It Up button; Celebrate It ribbon; Recollections gems; hemp twine.


I made this card for the following Christmas challenges:


Enjoy your Monday! To all my American friends have a safe 4th of July!

This is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I adore everything about it! And it's so nice that the inside does have the smooth bit on the left side where you can write something, and it's "hidden" with the strips on the front (don't know if that was intentional, but I like it). Amazing work!!!
