Freshly Made Sketches #8

Good Morning - It is chilly and dark out my window. Chilly for Victoria anyway at a balmy 3 degrees, I was scraping ice of my windshield rather then frost.

A fabulous new sketch was posted on Freshly Made Sketches yesterday, I started this card last evening but gave up when I found myself just staring at my supplies. It all came together this morning at about 5:40 as I was sipping my tea, my husband thinks I am crazy :) but that is nothing new.

This is the sketch:

I have left this Designer Paper out so I can see it and my eyes are just drawn to it, maybe it is all that wonderful glitter.

I have two of these stamps with Thomas Kinkaid images, I don't think I ever really do them justice. I have tried to colour them in the past but I was not happy with that either. They really are stunning images.

Supplies: Natural Ivory and brown cardstock, Designer Paper- My Mind’s Eye, Silent Night Vignette and Vintage Christmas Expressions-Cornish Heritage Farms,  Recollections Gems, Spellbinders Nestabilites.



  1. Great card! I like that you left the DP out....what a great idea.

    That is a beautiful image...kinda wish i was there.

    Hope you have a wonderful day!

  2. So pretty - and I love the sparkle :)And it is snowing here as I type this! Yikes - winter is here!

  4. I think your image is so pretty in the monochromatic look. That paper really is great! Glad you joined us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  5. I love the effect of the colors of your card. It's sort of a sepia tone that makes me think of vintage photographs. So pretty! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
