Christmas Wishes

Hi There! Sorry I'm a little inconsistent with the blog posts lately. I mentioned on an earlier post that I have a house guest for two weeks, so I've been busy playing hostess and entertainer. I've been missing my studio time, so I was determined to make it happen today. While I was shopping at Target today, I saw their new Christmas table decor, and was inspired to make a card. The red, gray and cream with snowflakes just reminded me of an old pair of warm woolen mittens/sweater. I knew I wanted to take this look and translate it to a card for the Moxie Fab World Old Country Christmas Challenge. I scoured through the various sketch challenges this week in the blog world, and ran across this fantastic Sweet Sunday sketch from The Sweetest Thing Blog. I knew this was perfect. As you can see, I reduced the sketch to make it an accent on my card base. I love doing this - it gives it a whole new look.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
