SKETCH 56: TAGS!


Happy Thursday, friends! Thanks for checking in even though I've been MIA for a bit. ;) We've moved, been busy with life, and have found out we are expecting a baby (our third...and last)! So to be honest with you, I just haven't felt like stamping! I am slowly but surely feeling better, though, and so I expect to slowly get the ball rolling again. :)

I love the card I made for this week's sketch! I love snowmen, and I LOVE the new Basic Grey Jovial line! I started with a kraft card base and stamped a build-a-snowmen from the Jovial Stamps-Snowmen set. I love the idea of customizing my snowmen, and I know my kids with love using this stamp set this holiday season, too! The sentiment is from the Unity Itty Bitty Snowbody Warms My Heart. I tied a knot of new May Arts Grosgrain/Satin Edge Ribbon in Light Turquoise around the top of the card, snipping the ends for style. I just love this ribbon...it ties so well, and the satin edging is GORGEOUS!! I punched the tag using my SU tag punch, and I punched the scallops on the side also using an SU punch. For both, I used the same Basic Grey Jovial paper. I layered on an SU felt snowflake and a natural-colored button. I tied my tag onto the ribbon knot using some Black Burlap String.

I just LOVED the sketch for this challenge. I had a great idea for this sketch as soon as I saw it, but I wasn't sure I would get to it in time to play along. I hope I haven't missed the deadline!! Here's my card:
