2S4Y My first sketch attempt


Well, I am a little nervous about this...as I said, I'm not sure what I enjoy doing as hobby, as "therapy" for a very busy life, should be out there pretending to be anything else. Anyway, here I am, on Wednesday morning, trying to figure this all out...before I go to sleep. (Night shift worker!) I was looking at Kazan's sketch this morning while blog-hopping and thought I'd give it a try. Since I'm trying to get my Christmas cards done on time this year...it's a Christmas card.

Supplies: Bazill Cardstock
My Mind's Eye P.P.
American Craft ribbon
Quick Kutz Holiday Phrases cookie cutter dies
MME Rhinestones
Bazill flourishes patterns
K and Co chipboard
Flowers from Michaels
Dollar Store tag
