Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 29


The weather here is bitterly cold today...it was very foggy this morning and was almost a complete white out! It did look pretty though and Sophie said she thought it looked like a winter wonderland....bless!

These gift cards are for this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge and I am always in awe at the wonderful sketches Arlana produces...she always creates such lovely clean lines and I love how they are so uncluttered! I have to confess to leaving an element of the sketch off my cards...its the little ribbon strip behind the image...that's what happens when you try and make four cards at the same time lol! The girls on the DT have produced some fab inspiration for this sketch and we were lucky enough to be given some images to play with this week by our sponsor Fresh Brewed Designs! They are offering one lucky winner the chance to win $20 worth of free images..Wow...what a fab prize!


Design Papers : Nitwit Collections (Comfort & Joy) Gingham Paper Martine @ The Craft Table

Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Sentiment : Created on the PC

Only two more sleeps now until Santa comes...are you getting excited?...I am lol!

Your cards are gorgeous Donna ! I do love the layout too... I wish you a wonderful Christmas and I take the opportunity to thank you : if you had not helped me when I started my blog, I would have given up and it would have been such a shame because I enjoy so much entering the challenges and I have met wonderful people like you during the last months... So thank you again from the bottom of my heart... Take care... Smile from Catherine

These cards are so sweet!!! Very much like what I had planned to create to give away this year, but never got around to making them :( There is always next year right? :) I love the rounded corners and the papers. I would have never noticed the missing ribbon / paper that you mentioned from the sketch! The sent / name tag at the top is such a wonderful idea!!! I hope you had a beautiful Christmas and have a happy New Year!
