SCS Sketch #248

Today's sketch on SCS's was a wonderful one. I had actually saved the card in my Favorites on SCS because I liked the layout when I first saw it! Nice and simple so you can play away with it :D

Speaking of my Favorites, I really do need to make a point of going through all the cards I have in there and cleaning things up as I have accumulated quite a few cards in there! A year ago I actually did go through and clean out a ton of cards. A year later, I think I'm back to where I started a year ago - ugh! Problem is I add cards to my favorites when I see a layout I like, a new way to use punches, different ways of layering a sentiment, ribbon treatments etc. There are so many talented ladies on SCS that the ideas are endless and unfortunately, my memory capacity isn't LOL! Now that I'm thinking about it, I should should go into my Favorites once a week and pick a card to either CASE (copy and share everything) or use as a starting point on a card. Now all I need is more time to be able to do it and more importantly, to remember to do it LOL!

Sorry, I regressed....back to the card. I thought this layout would be wonderful for a Christmas card as I've seen more and more popping up on blogs and SCS as companies begin releasing their Christmas lines. The first thing that popped into my head was Martha Stewart's snowflake punch. Just love it! I also love scallops (not the kind you eat - yuk!) so I pulled out my Marvy Square Scalloped Punch (nesties version is on my wish list!). Some fun DP gave me the colour combo and I used my all time favorite embossing folder, Swiss Dots, for some texture on the white panel. A bit of bling to the center of the snowflakes and silver ribbon with a bow up the side for a finishing touch. I used my new Bow Easy to make the bow. After hearing so much about it and watching a few You Tube videos, I used a 40% coupon at my local scrapbooking store to get one so I could try it out. I must say I quite enjoy it -- now I just have to stock up on glue dots to adhere the bows to the cards!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I always appreciate the company :D

I need to do that too. It is going to take me FOREVER. I just need to print out the ones I really like and get rid of the rest. This is a beautiful card. I like this sketch. It is different..Super colors...

This is so pretty. I like the blues, great job on the sketch.
And your not the only one... I need to go through my favorites as well. Time becomes the issue... I would spend so much time looking at them all again, when would I stamp. lol

Oh Marisa! This is SUCH a gorgeous card. Love Love LOOOVE the soft blue and white, and I love those Martha Stewart punches, too!

Thanks for you comment on my blog. In December or January, my gym is kicking off a new Les Mills's called Body Combat...from what I understand, it'll be similar to the Billy Banks workouts...I can't wait to try them out.
