It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

Really? Please could someone tell Texas weather that it's Christmastime? It's raining outside. booo... I'd love some snow!!

So here's this week's card for Jen's Sketch for you to try. Do you ever try it? I'd love to see it if you do!! I had a major mojo problem earlier today, but after I took a break and visited this cool blog for a killer color combo (try saying that 3 times fast!!), I think we have a winner. You like?

I wanted a clean and easy card, since it's nearing 1 a.m. here and I don't feel good, so I made it quick and simple. I stamped the polka dot stamp from Polka Dots & Paisley in Close to Cocoa on my Ruby Red card base. Had to use the Stampamajig to line it all up right, for sure! Then I inked up the flower from True Friend with my Ruby Red and Close to Cocoa markers and did some doodling around the image. I also went over the dots around the flower & leaves with my Quickie Glue Pen & added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for some sparkle. The center of the flower is a blue rhinestone brad from SU as well.

The rest is pretty simple, and I'm tired, so I'm gonna say good night for now. Make sure you check out Carole & Susan's cards to see their take on this sketch. Have a great day!

Beautiful card Shannan. I love the colors and the layout. I'm going to check out the site you mentioned. It's snowing right now here in Iowa so if you want to come up we can stamp while we watch it snow! :)

Shannan, your card is wonderful! I love that stamp set! I love to do Jen's sketches each week too! Helps the mojo ;)
I can't believe you WANT snow, I suppose because we see it for 6 or 7 months of the year, I can't stand the stuff!

We've been singing "rain, rain go away" here too! I already don't like the cold but if it's going to be cold there needs to be snow.

This card is awesome and that ribbon is yummy!! Fantastic job!
