Freshly Made Sketches 268!

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

We are finishing up 2016 at Freshly Made Sketches with a sketch designed by yours truly.  And I'll bet you won't be surprised that it's a square one!  Of course, if squares are not your thing feel free to use whatever shape card you like best.  Our challenge will be open longer than usual so you'll have until January 2nd to play along with us.

Don't adjust your sets, folks.  That is indeed a Christmas card you see here.  In fact, it is the first Christmas card that I created for 2017!  Either that or I'm so far behind I'm ahead of myself!  There was a pretty color challenge going on at Cupcake Inspirations and a Christmas challenge at CAS-ual Fridays so I couldn't resist sneaking in one more Christmas card this year.

I've been a bit lazy about crafting this week since a lot of my favorite challenge blogs are on a holiday hiatus.  This is actually the only card I've made all week and I probably won't make any more until after Christmas.  But during my little mini-break I've managed to finish up my Christmas shopping and over the next couple of days I will wrap gifts and then the festivities can begin for real!

I hope that during this busy time of year you can find time to join us at Freshly Made Sketches for our last challenge of the year.  Remember, this challenge will stay open until January 2nd so there's plenty of time to play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful card, the flower is gorgeous and I like this sketch a lot. That is great that you took some time to get the Christmas shopping done. I am sure if you get a little crafty something for a gift, you will have lots of mojo to get crafting after Christmas. TFS!

Love all that white space on your card and the poinsettia just pops off the card! CAS perfection and a great sketch - I'm hoping to make another card using it before the challenge ends.
