Hi there! Well, it's the last Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge of 2011! Unreal, right? I can't believe there are only 2 more weeks left in this year!! I seriously think 2011 has been the fastest year of my life so far. So anyway, We'll be taking next weekend off to spend the holidays with our families, but be sure to join us this week!! And then tune in on New Year's Day for the first sketch of 2012!! Here's a look at this week's sketch:
I created what is likely to be my final Christmas card of the year, which is funny since I STILL haven't mailed any out! I'm terrible, I know. I'm the world's worst card-mailer, but the BEST card collector!! You should see my stash! ;-)
I tried to get fancy with one of the fun new Christmas Verve sets, Bright Spirits, but it didn't turn out quite like I intended. Most of you know I'm not much of a technique girl - well, this is why! I tried to mix some glitter with some Crystal Effects and then "paint" it onto the ornament. It definitely looks glittery, but you lose the pretty pattern that's on the ornament stamp. I was hoping you'd still be able to see it through there, but I think I used too much glitter. And it took so long for the Crystal Effects to dry that I just said to heck with it and cut it out and used it anyway! The sentiment is from my go-to Christmas sentiment set, Holiday Phrases. (Are you tired of seeing that one yet?). All of the papers are from the fun Holiday Style paper pad from October Afternoon, which I'm loving. I also added one of my all-time favorite embellishments - a glittered chipboard star from the MemrieMare etsy shop. And that's it!
Be sure to stop by all the Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with this week's sketch.
