* Christmas Cards *

Since I got my paperpad from Basic Grey, I have used several sketches from challenge blogs to create my Christmas Cards for this year. This week I used sketches from Get Sketchy & Card Patterns you to create my cards.

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.
Next is a card for this weeks challenger over at Get Sketchy. A great sketch, but I faced some troubles fitting this card together. Now, however, I am happy with the outcome, I really find those little deers sooo cute :)

Finally a card for Card Patterns this week, I always love there sketches and this is no exception. No hard times here, the card was made swiftly and easily.

Supplies: white, pink and blue cardstock, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses papers, white puffy paint, pin, ribbon, snowflake punch, corner punch, border punches from fiskars and Martha Stewart, my own created digistamp.

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.
