Happy Holidays

So after a 6 month absence from the craft room (due to travelling!) I was excited that I managed my first card (in the previous post below) that I thought I would give the simple sketch from Sketch Saturday #327 a go ...

I love this sketch it is very versatile - I have rotated it 90 degrees and enlongated it.
materials - Kaisercraft cardstock - spearmint, licorice; My Minds Eye mistletoe magic papers; American Crafts chipboard thickers; MFT wonky border and christmas decorations dies; Hero Arts sayings stamps; Versafine onyx ink.
Thanks for looking.

Celebrate your inner elf

I have just had a 6 month break from the craft room (travelling around!) and it is very daunting sitting at the craft desk making a card when you are a little out of practice.  I thought I would try a little paper piecing to get my eye back in.
I followed the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #92 ...
and have based the colours on this months challege at Scrapbook Boutique blog 
materials used - Kaisercraft Cardstock - spearmint, cherry; Stamps - The Crafts Meow 'inner elf'; Versafine onyx ink; Kaisercraft silver rhinestones; silver cord; split rings.
Thanks for looking.
