Here are a couple of cards that I did manage to mail out in time! I love using sketches at this time of year, it makes the creative process a lot quicker for me, which is useful as I'm one of life's procrastinators! The first card uses one of this years So Jolly Magnolia stamps. I love this little girl waiting for a kiss under the mistletoe. I showed DH this card hoping for some kind of 'that's nice' and was rewarded with an umpphh! To which, I asked 'Don't you like it?' and he replied with 'It's just another one of your cards using that weird mouthless troll girl'!!! Is he mad? How can possibly compare Tilda to a troll?
I didn't have the right colour flowers so I've used three pearl gems in the left-hand corner instead. You can just about make them out in the photo!
Paper: Basic Grey Wassail
Colours: Copics and Promarkers
Punches: I used my Fiskers punch for the borders, cut a circle with my Martha Stewart circle cutter and used nestabilities for the scalloped circle.
Sketch: Sketch Saturday #82
The card below is using another sketch but I completed this one a while ago and I'm not sure whose sketch it was, sorry. Apologies also for not cropping the photo. I hadn't realised it was so bad until I uploaded it. The stamp is a cute Sugar Nellie one.
