Happy Holidays

A quick post today as I have to leave in about 10 minutes!

Even though the post will be done fast I must say that when I saw the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge I have been having about five million thoughts about the kind of card I wanted to make.  My first thought was a Thanksgiving card, then a Birthday card, but after I realized that my Thanksgiving paper has gone to my scrapbook project I had to switch it to a different one.  Note to myself - try not to have too many ongoing projects at the same time, it muddles up thoughts and preparation of materials!

I eventually finished the card this morning.  It is a Christmas card:


I like that it is simple and can be mass produced for the Christmas season!  The sketch looks like this:


My card also enters the following challenges:
1.  Just Add Ink - Snowflakes
2. Creative Corner - Anything Goes
3.  Creative Finger - Anything Goes
4.  Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes
5.  Fun Day Friday - Anything Goes and
6.  Sister Act card challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!
