It’s been ages since I played along with the MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge, tonight I had some free time so I made a Christmas card using this week’s sketch.
I used MFT’s Snowfall Background stamp that was released last month and Blueprints #13 along with a sentiment from Presents for You.
Here is the sketch~
No big plans this weekend so I’m hoping to have lots of crafty time
Stamps: MFT Snowfall Background, Presents for You
Ink: MFT Black Licorice hybrid ink, Sweet Tooth pigment ink

I finally sat down at my desk tonight and made a card…lots of stuff has been going on and I haven’t been feeling all that crafty. I used my Gina K Designs Stamp TV kit from last month to create this Thanksgiving card. I used the sketch at Mojo Monday and would also like to enter it into the Thanksgiving challenge at Cuttin and Stampin.
Here is the sketch~

I had a great time at my crop yesterday. I got 8 Christmas cards made and I’m here to share one of them tonight. I made it for the Holiday Cards & Tags Challenge at Mama Elephant and Me.
I recently purchased my first Mama Elephant stamps and I am HOOKED! They are adorable and they stamp great!! Very, very happy with them
I used the adorable Arctic Penguins, their coordinating Creative Cuts and the Jolly and Merry sentiment set. The cardstock, embellishments & patterned papers are from an old Taylored Expressions card kit that’s been sitting in my stash for almost 3 years. The layout is Sketch 506 from Splitcoaststampers.
Here is a close up of my cutie pie penguin – I popped him up on the iceberg.
Thanks for stopping by! I am so excited for tomorrow, the Holiday Card Workshop at Online Card Classes is starting. I need to get more Christmas cards made!
Stamps: Mama Elephant Arctic Penguins, Jolly and Merry
Ink: Ranger Archival Jet Black (note: do NOT use it with copics like I did! It bled a tiny bit…and I should have known better)
CS: Bazzill, Taylored Expressions Choice Snow White
PP: Bella Blvd Christmas Wishes
Other: snowflake brad, gem, ribbon all from TE card kit, stampin dimensionals, copics
Good morning and Happy November!
I don’t have any calendar pages yet…hopefully soon! I do have a great October book report though! I read SIX books!! A few were started in August & September and the rest were started and finished last month.
#36 Muffin by Murder by Victoria Hamilton (Merry Muffin Mystery #2) ebook
#37 Family Album by Danielle Steel – ebook
#38 Paris Match by Stuart Woods (Stone Barrington #31) ebook
#39 Bad Bites by Jessica Beck (Donut Mystery #16) ebook
#40 Holly Blues by Susan Wittig Albert (China Bayles #18) ebook
#41 Clobbered by Camembert by Avery Aames (Cheese Shop Mystery #3) paperback
I enjoyed everything I read this month. The Danielle Steel was a re-read for me, but it had been so long that I forgot many details. It made me remember why I love her books and need to pick them up more often! I swore I wasn’t going to buy any more books for the Stone Barrington & Donut Mystery series but I couldn’t help myself LOL! I’m glad I did though since I really liked both books!
I’m off to a crop today. Can’t wait to see my crafty friends! I hope you all have a great weekend too!
