The Sketch File. Kathy introduced a new sketch for February but I am just getting around to creating cards with it. As with all her sketches, she encourages you to twist it, shrink it, enlarge it and use if for whatever craft you please. I based my card on the "heart-version" of her sketch. Do you have a preferred version? Please let us see what you create with the sketch. You can post your creation H E R E.

For Christmas 2017 I created several cards with handmade snowmen. I must be hooked on these little snowmen because I have created yet another Christmas card with a similar snowman. I started with a punched circle then hand cut a hat and scarf to fit the head. I used a bit of chalk to add highlights on the hat and scarf. I also cut along the bottom edges of the scarf to create a fringe. I drew the eyes and mouth, added a tiny cardstock carrot nose,chalked in rosy cheeks and blue chalk highlight on the outer edge of the head. The sentiment was created with a Cottage Cutz die cut (Merry Christmas Santa).

Today I am sharing several Valentine's Day cards that were all inspired by projects I've seen on the internet. IThese cards will go-to some of my co workers so they can share them with a spouse. I had intended on making a card for my hubby, but as I was working on these, he kept popping in and out of my craft room. I guess I'll have to work on his later this week when I know he will be out of the house for a few hours.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

As I said, I am trying to be creative instead of snoozing so the three cards above are responsible for keeping me awake and encouraging a better night's sleep. Each card has a Christmas tree, but each tree is different from the others. The first tree was created with glitter glue. I simply drew stars on white cardstock, let it dry, then brushed it with green chalk. The second tree is made with bits of ribbon and the third tree is handcut from green cardstock. I used chalk to create the branches.
Hope you have had a crafty week as well! Thanks for stopping by.
