The sketch File & Cards in envy

The sketch file uses a London Underground design.



I've gone OTT with bling on this one because some people like the razzle dazzle.
And if you can't go blingy at Christmas, when can you?


Cards in envy has a paper only challenge.
I used 2 punched pointsettias on green background. Everything on here is paper.


Allsorts challenge blog

My next card is for Allsorts challenge where they want glitter.
My sentiment block across the centre is on white crystal glitter paper.
I've edged it with tiny Christmas washi tape.


Cardz4guyz and Cute card Thursday.

Cardz4guyz want reindeers.
Because of the volume of cards I made to sell, I'm fresh out of reindeers.
However I did find a picture of a baby deer ,so hope it qualifies.
Think of it as a deer who hasn't grown its antlers yet.

I'm also entering in Cute Card Thursday where they want birds or animals.

Case this sketch



Another sketch at Case this sketch.
I've gone space -age Christmas with this card.
The black stars are really metallic silver and the black swirl across the centre is metallic red.
It is quite a pretty card really.
(I hate the way metallic surfaces come up black)

Christmas cards all year 'round & CAS on sundays

Christmas Cards all year 'round want cookies or gingerbread.
I've made a card using a felt gingerbread men, a doiley and a sticker.
The sentiment says "Eat, drink and be merry"


At Clear and simple on Sundays they have asked us to use Washi tape.
My grey background is cut from Christmas paper.
I made a tag using 5 different Christmas washi tapes then added a matching strip at the bottom.
My sentiment is actually on the washi.

The tape that looks black is actually gold.

I'm also entering at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge

Let's get sketchy.

Another layout for Let's get sketchy.
Here is the sketch.


Because my photos are retro and bright I followed that lead.
My background paper is from Webster's pages. I used a metallic red for my photo mat and added a red doiley in the back.
The black border sticker was from my Counterfeit kit and the 3 pennants at the bottom are from scraps.
We visited this diner in Phoenix Arizona when I was there.It took me back to Happy Days.
