Today I have a card for Unscripted Sketches sketch. I used a Unity Stamp for this one - loose interpretation but this is what the sketch inspired in me.
Wishing everyone a blessed Merry Christmas - I'm still struggling to get out Christmas cards and since I made them I'm hoping the post office sends them on through even though they are a little bulky!

First off since I made the Sketchabilities DT I just realized that they have a Cardabilities blog as well so went over to play along with their sketch this week as well. Haven't had a chance to do the layout yet but going to get to it as well.
I used some Echo Park paper here and a digital stamp (forgot whose) and a SRM sticker. Oh and just got the die cut from Die-namics for these little flowers!! Love them.
Next wanted to play along over at Less is More again this week - challenge was to use Music. This stamp was the only thing I had to go along with the theme so one more Christmas card. The stamp is a Rachelle Anne Miller from Paper Works Co., the cardstock is Glittersilk from Core'dinations.
Then this sketch caught my attention over at Once Upon a Sketch and I was inspired to made this page using the Jenni Bowlin Core'dination's Cardstock and these cute pictures of my grandkids.
Thanks for stopping by! Back to work tomorrow for two more days.
