My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

SNSS - Elegant Blessings - SSS-36

Wow, can you believe that tomorrow is New Years Eve already. Where has this year gone. This is a very hard time of the year for me. As a card maker and a Close to my Heart Consultant, we work three months in advance of a season or Holiday. Which means, I should be ready to start making Spring and Easter cards, but I just don't have it in me yet. Christmas/Winter is my favorite card making season. Although you wouldn't know it by the amount of my own personal Christmas cards I got made this year. So, to all of my friends that didn't receive a Christmas card from me this year, Merry Christmas! You will be first on my list next year!!!  *Ü*

Anyway, I have this gorgeous stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, called Elegant Blessings. My intentions were to use if for Easter cards, but like I said, my mind isn't there yet. So, I made a Sympathy card. I followed the Sweet Stop Saturday Sketch Challenge for the design of this card. I have to admit, after finishing this card, I am a hair closer to getting into Spring. I forgot how much I enjoy making and using flowers on my cards and I really like how this card turned out. What a gorgeous sketch!

Be sure to stop by on Friday, Saturday & Sunday to see sneak peaks of the  new stamps being released by Sweet 'n Sassy on January 7th.

I hear you about working ahead in the seasons, Nancy -- sometimes the mind just isn't ready!! This is a lovely Sympathy card, and I thank you for the inspiration here -- these are the hardest kinds for me to make, and I appreciate seeing such a terrific sample.
