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.

If you’ve come here from Carol’s Blog, you are on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog, you will want to start at the very beginning at the FSS Blog so you can collect all the words in the correct order.

My card today was made using the pre-colored Fred She Said newly released Christmas Poinsettia Lantern. Isn’t this just the prettiest image! I used this week’s sketch from Midnight Madness challenge blog. It was just perfect for my lantern.

I added some yellow stickles to the centers of the poinsettias and the candle flame. I also added some red Bling on the ribbon and right hand corners.

The papers are all from Close to my Heart and the Hand Stitching was done with Red Embroidery Floss.
My special words for the phrase are “a Very”.

Now hope on over to Val’s Blog and see the gorgeous artwork from her.
