Jingles & Sketches... all the way...

This week, Jingle Belles has teamed up with the Clean and Simple Stamping designers to create our cards using sketch #154. In the spirit of the partnership, we should also keep our cards clean and simple - easy right? Not if you've seen anything I ever create! CAS isn't really my style! Full and messy more like LOL!

But I did create something more pared down than I would usually make and the sketch made this really quick to put together. I used up some of my never ending scraps (oh, when will my box ever empty???) and cut out a sentiment from this great CC paper and another card hits the pile.

Fall to layout #154




Happy Wednesday everyone! And just remember that there's only 14 weeks until the beginning of December - how many cards do you have all ready to post? Why not head over to Jingle Belles and get yourself ahead of the game?!?

  3. Lisa, for someone who doesnt normally do CAS I think you did a fabulous job with this challenge! I love the paper you chose and Sarah is right, those images are an awful like the candy I love to eat at Christmas. Beautiful card!

  9. You've been a constant reminder to me to start work on my Christmas cards. I think that I'll use old greeting cards (like in my recent project) as the base for this year's cards. I'll start soon, I promise ;)

  14. well, i have to say i disagree... i think you've really done quite brilliantly both with the sketch AND the C&S vibe! by limiting yourself to one pattern (admittedly a BOLD one!) it sort of ties everything together; simplifies & streamlines the design! on the other hand, i am not exactly a "minimalist" so would i KNOW, we ask ourselves??!?! :) :) :) whatever you call it, this is one *FAB* xmas card for sure!

    ps: when you start your "full and messy" sketch challenge blog can i be on the DT??!?!? :)
