Hello everyone! How was your weekend? I had such a lovely weekend celebrating Thanksgiving and my oldest daughters 16th birthday! I pretty much steered clear of my work room all weekend so when I sat down to create today it was bliss! I have to tell you! I kind of love this weeks card sketch! So much that I couldn’t stop at just one card but made 4 of them! Honestly I wanted to keep going, but I figured that you all would like to have the sketch so that you can start working on some cards if you’re ready!
This weeks sketch is a simple standard size card that can be worked into any size card that you’d like quite easily. It is a layered patterned paper card with 3, 1.5 x 1.5″ squares across the front, and a ribbon hanging the center square from the top of the card with a bow.
Because I am in full swing Holiday mode right now, I went for some scraps still sitting on my table from my projects last week, some of my perfectly organized winter papers to create this weeks card.
Of course I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to use some of the Thickers from today’s amazing steal of a steal. The sketch worked perfectly to spell out ‘joy’.
I then closed my eyes and grabbed another kit of papers and came up with some Fancy Pants to create this thank you card.
Next I decided to use some fun papers to create an ‘I <3 U!” card. Once again….Thickers to the rescue!
I had to force myself to stop at 4 cards and ended up with this fun ‘Thank You’ card with a slightly modified version of the sketch.
I love how perfectly this bird from one of the Thickers sets being offered today finished off my card!
I can’t believe that we have finished up another 4 weeks of Monday Card Madness! We have loved seeing what you create. Our Facebook Fan Page is absolutely jam packed with inspiration. If you haven’t had a chance to take a peek please do!
Usually we would have our drawing for cards today, but being as we have 5 Mondays in November this month, you have one more week to have a crack at winning all of the cards that I have made this month!
Remember to post your cards to Facebook or your own personal blog by next Sunday at midnight, with a comment and link left on the coordinating card blog posting and I will announce the MCM winner on our post next week.
Be sure to check in on Wednesday as we have an amazing guest sketcher lined up for this week!
