You know how I like to follow sketches??


I have been asked to join Sketch~N~Scrap on their card design team!
How exciting is that??

I start in July but in the meantime here are my takes on a few sketches:

This first one is from Sketch~N~Scrap (June).
I am still trying to get on top of my Christmas cards -
 what was that New Year Resolution to make so many each week? 
So far I am about 60% on target - but here come's Summer and I will be travelling!!

All my cards today have involved using an ATC sized rectangle on them...
embellished as for an ATC and then  as a feature of each card. 
Two of the stamps I have used are from SU's Holiday Lineup.
The papers are from my stash - 6x6 papers from Docrafts and Bobunny.

In each case I have started with a red rectangular card blank -
 and then it was just a matter of matting and layering!
 I used a punch that can be used to help thread the ribbon.

My next sketch is from CAS(E) This Sketch

 and my version:

I will link this to CAS(E) This Sketch 79

The next sketch is from 52 {Christmas Card} Throwdown

and here is my version:
