52 CCT Sketch Challenge #3

Well, it's my month to host again at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown! :) SURPRISE--you can't get rid of me! ;D I have a very CAS sketch for your inspiration this week.

Here it is~

Isn't it smashing?! You may remember this card that used the same sketch--before it was a sketch. Or rather, before it was a sketch challenge! But I digress.

Here is my first card & details~




This one was FUN. But time consuming! I have wanted to use this sentiment for a while, but didn't know what challenge to use it for. Maybe I'll use it every week this month to teach myself a lesson. ;) Anyway, the time consuming part was the lines of hearts. But so worth it--this turned out cuter that I thought it would! :)

Card 2 and details~




I realized last time we did a sketch challenge that I hadn't done a card with the sketch mixed up a bit--so I'm repenting this month. This is a perfect way to use up the last bits of ribbon you have hanging around! Just add a fabulously gold and sparkly sentiment, and you're set!

I hope you come and join us this week for our sketch challenge--I LOVE seeing what you all create! And don't forget to go and check out my pardner's blog--Jacqueline is amazing!!! Merry stamping! :)

These are wonderful Mynnette! I've never felt remotely tempted to do Christmas cards at the beginning of the year before you and Jacqueline started inspiring me!

Wow Mynnette! That heart card is just gorgeous! I love those lines of hearts on top of the Swiss Dots! The second card is just so elegant with that gorgeous embossing! Great job!!!
