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!

Happy scrappin’!
