Got Sketch? 135 and Guest Designer Announcement

This time of year is always busy in our household. Not only because of all the festive activities, but both our girls celebrate their birthday in December too. I haven't had time yet to post my contribution to Got Sketch? 135 that went up on the blog last Monday. As always I had fun working with Valerie's sketch. Papertrey Ink's Cover Plate: Quatrefoil is one of my new favorites.

I stamped the background text with A Muse Studio's Latte ink, covered the vintage cream cardstock with the Quatrefoil die-cut and then stamped a snowflake in Ripe Avocado.

Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream, Ripe Avocado) | Patterned paper: Papertrey Ink (Distressed Dots) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (2011 Holiday Tags, Background Basics: Christmas, Peace Be Still) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Ripe Avocado), A Muse Studio (Latte) | Button: Papertrey Ink (White & Cream Mix) | Ribbon: Papertrey Ink (Ripe Avocado) | Twine: May Arts | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Cover Plate: Quatrefoil, Limitless Layers: 1 3/4" Circle Collection, Limitless Layers: 2.5" Circle Collection, Damask Snowflakes), EK Success (1 3/4" Circle Punch) | Other: glitter cardstock, foam adhesive

This card is also my entry for the last challenge of 2011 on the A Passion for Papertrey Ink blog. It's been ages ago since I played along with their challenges and I will definitely play along more often in 2012, because I sure have a passion for Papertrey Ink. I didn't read the challenge requirements quite well. I thought the color to use was green, but green has to be included, so it didn't have to be a monochromatic card. Nevertheless, I'm pleased with my card and so are my parents. I made this one for them.

I would like to announce the guest designer for my store Cards & Wishes. It wasn't easy to pick just one designer from the submissions that I received. Therefore, I chose two guest designers. One will guest design in January, and the other one in February. The guest designer for January is Wilma Hilferink. Wilma has a great and colorful style that I like a lot, and I can't wait to see what she will create. February's guest designer is Durvina van Broekhoven. Her style is totally different from mine, but her designs are gorgeous. Thanks to all of you who submitted to this call.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful day.
