I have a lot of friends who groan when I mention Christmas this early but really us crafters have to get ahead of the game - it's no use waiting until December to start making our cards is it? So I am going to challenge myself to make some Christmas cards for some Challenge blogs over the next few weeks, that way I should have a good amount of Christmas cards in all different styles.
The challenge over at CAS Colours and Sketches this week is a Sketch -
I often find Sketches challenging as I tend to follow them to the letter and really need to use them as guidelines rather than rules - you know the phrase out of Pirates of the Caribbean lol!
My card uses a very old Cherry Pie Art stamp with all the Merry Christmas's written in different languages - it has been my go to stamp for Christmas for manyyears. I masked it and stamped two trees full of glitter behind it - I'm not sure where the other tree stamp came from. The sentiment is also one of my favourites as Meet Me In St Louis with Judy Garland when she sings that song is one of my favourite Christmas Movies.
I'm also including this in Watercooler Wednesday's Challenge this week which is all about Christmas .
