Both of these sketch challenges had great sketches this week.
I decided to use the sewing machine on the card using Dawn's sketch at Inspirational Card Sketches. I zig zagged around each of the blocks and also sewed the buttons on. I don't know why I have such a problem keeping my stitching straight when stitching on paper; I don't have that problem when stitching on material. Anyway, I used some coordinating paper that I got at Tuesday Morning, added some buttons, flowers, and brads.
Guess what? I won the drawing for last week at Just Christmas and Birthday Cards. I get a Forever Friends paper set and stamp. I'm excited 'cause I rarely win anything. For this week's sketch, I decided to do a Christmas card using cardstock and patterned paper from my scrap paper stash. I added a swirl cut on the Cricut and some self-stick gems for a little bling.
Today was my Friday at work. I am taking vacation days tomorrow and Friday and really looking forward to my extra long weekend.
Luck, love and laughter,
