A rare September post - Less is More

So for my second September post, which had to be reasonably quick, I have chosen the Less is More challenge - a sketch


Now that my focus is for Christmas, except for my daughter's birthday, I thought a Christmas card was in order.


What you need
Cardstock - SU white;  Bazzill Basics hot pink
Stamps - SUMy Friend;  Penny Black Merry Christmas
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Rose Bud
Markers - Memento Rose Bud, Angel Pink
Stickles - Diamond

 I have been glued to Jennifer McGuire's online class "Inspiration Showcase" for the past couple of weeks and found an area of my stamp/ink collection which is sadly lacking - Distress inks and stains.  I have seen some of the techniques featured but definitely not all so hope to have a play when we get home from Victoria.

This is what I have been working on .... have known for quite sometime that these birthday calendar books needed to be done but, of course, I left getting them done till the last minute.




If I can indulge my ego for a moment, this weeks Paper Crafts blog is featuring the new Christmas cards special edition. A week or so ago Courtney Smith emailed me to say that a project of mine would be featured on the blog (Tuesday US time, so Wednesday in Oz).  So take a look and let me know what you think.

  6. Congrats! I'll be looking for your card. I love these, and am envious that you are taking Jennifer's class. I really wanted to do it, but knew I didn't have the time. For once, I restrained myself and it's a good thing. I hope she offers it again.
