My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

Sunday Sketch & Stamp 47 - DT Card

Good morning peeps!  Be prepared, grab a cuppa it's a long one! LOL

Well what a week - I haven't blogged since last weekend as have had such a busy week, this working full time malarky is wearing me out LOL, plus on Friday I had my 3rd day of first aid training and exam, and although it was an intense course, I luckily passed and am now a fully qualified first aider!

Helped Mark yesterday to completely rearrange the garage - he has so much stuff - but I suppose his garage is like my craft room full of stash!

Anyways I hope to be able to have some crafting time today to do a major catch up.  I am certainly looking forward to next Friday as it half term YAY!

Right it's Sunday and that time again for another challenge at Sunday Sketch & Stamp and this week it's Lisa's turn.

Lisa has provided us with a fab sketch plus an added extra of no corners, so it must be a circle or oval card.

And here's my take on the sketch.  I decided to make a topper using the basis of the sketch and theme.

Which I then stuck to my card base below.

For this card I used:-
  • Stamping Boutique AJ With Heart Banner Digi
  • Promarkers
  • Roses from Stash
  • Sizzix Hearts Using Mirri Card
  • Nesties
  • Papermania Love Colossal Paper
  • Docrafts Greeting Stamp using Brilliance Rocket Red Ink
This week we are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique and the DT were provided with some of their fab digi images to use and one lucky winner will be receiving a lovely surprise.

We also have some exciting news - we are looking to add to our design team. If you would like to join us, here's what you need to know:

You must be able to:

  • produce a card, layout or other crafted item following the sketch, once a fortnight, and blog the item on your personal blog
  • provide a sketch for the team to follow when it is your turn on the rota, and produce the challenge post for your challenge also
  • visit and comment on entries to the challenge
Simply email us (address in the sidebar on our blog) and include your name, location, and a link to your blog so we can see your style.
We look forward to hearing from you.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:-
