I started with a "free"card, it's based on an older sketch from CardPatterns and I have already used it in the past, since I loved it so much I wanted to use it again for an X mas based card. This time I choose for a more traditional color scheme and.... I created my own digistamp for this card with a Christmas Greeting.
I am currently reading a novel from Suzanne Vermeer - Zomertijd. Already halfway through the story. I like how she writes the story which keeps you close and involved, without being there real suspense. Her books are always a pleasure to read.

The first one is based on this weeks sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. I really have not played along with their sketches due to lack of time, but they are always very inspirationful Second card it based on CPS sketch of this week.

I also bought some say it in crystals swirls. A first for me, but they are truly gorgeous and very usable for cards if you cut them smaller. And some new journaling sprouts, thankfully they were still there. The calender ones are already sold out... too bad, but these are so nice to add to cards or just a bit of text to layouts. I am off to create my first cards....... :)

I am standing in the super six over at cardpatterns!! for sketch 31. Thank you ladies. I really love your blog & the weekly sketches are great and always a good inspiration.
Also this week I just loved the sketch and my card came together without troubles this time. It's a rather basic card for me at least, but I still like it. I used some yummy papers of MME; Ooh La La. With my last card I also used a journaling sprout from Jillibean and I already ordered a new package. I just love those tiny pieces of paper to add a text by stamp or rub on. They make a great embelishments.
Supplies: white cardstock, My Minds Eye Ooh La La papers, EK Succes flower punch, Crafts too corner punch, buttons, scrappers flos, Jillibean Journaling sprout, white puffy paint, digistamp Mlamarredesigns for Cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com
I also ordered a paper pad from Basic Grey; eskimo kisses. Ideal patterns for making Christmas cards. Just checked my mail and the delivery has been send out, so hopefully it will arrive tomorrow, can hardly wait to get those X mas cards ready.
Go check here for some BG inspiration.
For last years Christmas photo's I have some Jillibean lying ready to use, but I still need to sort out photo's and print them (yeah, real bad, I know....) But I have to go through too much photo's. That's the downside of digital photography, but mostly I *love* it :)

The sketch is really great, and it's totally me, that the card hasn't worked out as I had it planned in my head.
I created an open fold card with the sketch in mind, but even with the great Jillibean soup papers, didn't quite work for me. Since I am a little short of time, I decided to put it up anyway.
As it looks open. Card closed.
Enjoy your weekend.

I loved the sketch from CardPatterns (already #31! I haven't played along for quite some time) when I saw it in the weekend, but didn't find time sooner to make a card. I struggled with the kind of papers I wanted to use and the first card didn't work out, but I am happy with this result. Supplies: white and pink cardstock, Basic Grey Lemonade papers, Kaisercraft flowers, button, scrappersflos, pins, jillibean journaling sprout and digistamp Mlamarredesigns from Cuttlebugchagelleng.blogspot.com

Unfortunately I missed sketch nr 3 over @ GS last week. I was busy and tired after work and had no time to make a card. Butttt.... yesterday evening I finished this card based on their sketch nr. 4. It's a wonderful sketch to work with and since it's Autumn - my most favorite time of the year - I thought it would be great to use up some scraps of Basic Greys Ambrosia and...
