Sweetheart #74

 Hi Guys,
 Another quick card for you this week.

I have made the Feeling Sketchy #74 sketch up using the very pretty 'Sweetheart' from Sans Designs. She has been coloured with my trusty Pro Markers. Isn't she sweet!
Here is the sketch. 

Pop on over to the blog and play along with our challenge. Sorry for the short posts of late, craft is so low on my priority list ATM but I will keep trying. Happy card making.

Feeling Sketchy Blog Hop

Welcome to the Feeling Sketchy Design Team Christmas blog hop!

Hopefully you've found your way here from Debi's blog,

But if you've only started here then you might want to start back at Feeling Sketchy .

 I'm so excited to share my cute Christmas decorations and box I have made using this months sponsor Image 'Santa with Star'

Here are some instruction on how to make these cute little Christmas decorations to hang on your tree.
First you will need to print out the Digi Stamp . I have put two images per 10.5x15cm card . I think six decorations makes a lovely gift box amount. 

Next you will want to colour the images using your chosen medium. I love Pro Markers so I have coloured them with these. If you aren't as time poor as I am you might want to print some extras and fussy cut the star and hands, adding some dimensionals to pop it out.

Once you have your images all coloured up just the way you like them, cut them out. I have left the beard and the hat tail on but you could trim these off and double side the decoration like baubles. Next is to add ribbon to hang them. Simply staple ribbon in the position where you would like it. 

These would make a great little gift to give to work friends or for that decoration swap you might be in. Of course you need a box to present them in so I've made one of those to.

Here are the measurement and instructions you will need. for a box that fits six deco's.

Take printed double sided card stock measuring 13 x 11.3cm
score @ 2cm and 11cm on the long side then 2cm and 9.3 cm on the short side. This will leave you with 2cm squares in the corners. Snip on side of this square to the score line only and place adhesive in each square, taking note of which pattern you would like on the outside of your box. Fold all score line then adhere corners in place so side stand up.
Next take window sheet or acetate and cut a strip 9cm x 21cm.
score @ 2, 9.5, 11.5 and 19 cm and fold. Using strong stick strip, adhere 2cm ends together.

Place Christmas decoration in box and slide acetate lid over. Tie a nice ribbon around box and you are done.

I hope you like my Christmas project I have made for you and don't forget 
the fun doesn't stop here, the next blog to hop to is Sharyn's.

When all is done, be sure and check back with Feeling Sketchy at 
 for a wonderful giveaway on their blog.
 Happy Hopping!

Build your own Christmas for Feeling Sketchy

Hi Guys,
It is fast approaching that time of year again so I thought I would make a Christmas card with one of the great images from this months sponsor

The image I have used is called 'Build your own Christmas' and comes as you see it here but also with each element separated so you can cut and paste them where you want them and build your own image...hence the name!!

I have colour this fab image in with my Pro Markers and tried to get as much shine into it as I could. Unfortunately I am very time poor these day so I don't get time to play and practice with my markers as much as I would like. this has turned out pretty good though. The sentiment is one I have had for years from Kassazz.

Here is the sketch over at Feeling Sketchy that i followed:

As you can see I chose not to go with the optional challenge, bling just didn't suit this card. But you might like to have a go. Hope to see your card over at Feeling Sketchy.

Feeling Sketchy #72

Hi Guys,
I hope the team over at Feeling Sketchy are giving you plenty of inspiration to make some cards....I know I definitely need it!! Spending time in my scrap room just isn't very high on my priority list ATM so I apologise in advance for the very simple cards I have been turning out of late, although I do like the simple look too. I have used a glitter printed card stock that I have had in my stash forever and thought it matched up nicely with the new in colour from Stampin Up! called Baked Brown Sugar.

As you can see I have left this card very clean and simple but managed to get some twine in there in honour of our sponsor Whimsy Farm Twine.

This is a great sketch to play along with so please pop over to Feeling Sketchy and enter our challenge...there are always great prizes to be won and this month is no exception.
