Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 294






Happy Wednesday!  Today is the day the the AHSC design team members share their interpretations of Michelle's sketches.  The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge is set up in such a fun way:  a new sketch is posted each Monday, and design team inspiration is show on Wednesday.  That way, participants can choose to play either before or after being influenced by the DT's interpretations of the sketch.  Such fun!  Hope you will visit the AHSC Blog and play along!

For today's card, I used a sentiment and watercolored flower from Verve's Kindness Matters (retired).  The cute little wreath die is from Reverse Confetti.

Thanks for visiting,

Celebrate Your Day


In the midst of wrapping Christmas gifts, I make sure to have something special for a family member whose birthday is right after Christmas.  That includes being certain NOT to wrap it in red and green paper.  The merchant was kind enough to drop the gift in a little kraft bag with some vibrant purple tissue.  I dressed it up with a delicate floral tag featuring Reverse Confetti's Build a Bunch and a sweet Verve sentiment.

Hoping you find fun in preparations and celebrate the true joy of Christmas,
Christine

Happy Holidays


What a blessing the weekend was!  I enjoyed shopping, baking, and decorating and feel so sure that God truly multiplied my time.  Everything was such a pleasure, and there was even a while to make a few cards.  This layout is a CASE of a card made some time ago.  It works nicely with the small images and script-y sentiments from Lawn Fawn.

Coffee Lovers Hop: Warm Wishes



My Christmas cards are in the mail, but we still need a few for hand-delivered gifts and for gift cards.  For this one, I used a Lawn Fawn set and CASED one of my own cards and changed the patterned papers.  I think I like it just as well in red as in green.




Thanks so much for visiting,

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop




It is so exciting to find a bit of time to participate in the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I always find it so inspiring to see the cards and such fun to play along.

My card features PTI dies and a retired Verve set that will always remain a favorite.  The bold Christmas print from Paper Studio did most of the design work for this one.

Thanks so much for visiting,
