Feeling Inspired Yet?

Please join us over at The Sketch File. We have a fun sketch to create with and we hope you will feel inspired to use it. Both Kathy and I have been using the sketch to create cards to further inspire you. This week my card has a Christmas theme. Normally, I have all my Christmas cards created by now, but I am really behind this year. My job is just taking too much time these days. I am putting in 11 hour days (5 or 6 days a week) and come home feeling quite fatigued. I look forward to the weekends, especially the ones when I am not expected to work on Saturday.  HERE ARE THE SKETCHES WE'VE BEEN USING ALL MONTH LONG....I hope you feel inspired.

Stamped Cattails

Won't you join us at The Sketch File? We're keeping our sketch up all month long and both Kathy and I are sharing cards to offer inspiration. I created this card with a male recipient in mind. I used various shades of brown and stamped the image of the cattails with a brown ink as well.

August @ The Sketch File

Thank goodness I have had an opportunity to get some crafting done. Work lately has been stressful and it is good to get away from it all with a bit of crafting. I have been enjoying the challenge that our current sketch offers, It's one of those sketches that allows for simple, clean cards. As you can see I have kept my card simple and decided to use  a Christmas theme.  I used two different snowflake punches and added the twine and decorative edge to pull it all together.  I hope you find the time to craft this week and will be inspired by our current sketch at The Sketch File. I will be looking forward to seeing what you create with it.

August @ The Sketch File

August has arrived which means it's time to share our newest sketch. Each month at The Sketch File we introduce a new sketch. We keep the sketch up throughout the month and hope you will have time to visit us and play along. As with all of our sketches, feel free to modify it by shrinking parts, enlarging, rotating or flipping it. We'd love to see what you create.

My card was inspired by the sketch and the dark green Christmas ribbon with kittens. I didn't add a lot of other detail. I wanted to keep the card clean and simple.
