Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #138 and Day 4 of the Coffee Lovers Hop! I will be stepping outdoors to go to my "Job" for the first time in a couple days...lol... I suppose it's a good thing I have it or I might just be tempted to stay home and communicate only with my online friends and craft all day/week/month/year. I guess I better put on my sunglasses before I step out the door. I wonder if the Zombie Apocolypse has happened... if the world as I know it still exists... maybe I better just stay home.
So...Love this week's sketch (Michelle is a genius!)... worked in really well with a card I wanted to make for the Paper Sweeties December Inspiration Challenge. I loved the opportunity to use some of the paper mom shared with me that she won from the SVG Attic Blog Hop from Die Cuts With a View. I cut the scallops with my CTMH scallop border punch. The background behind the images was made using gelatos and then stamped snowflakes from the Paper Sweeties set with Hero Arts gold shadow ink. It's a little lighter and a little shimmerier (say that three times fast!) than it looks here.
The pretty crinkly seam binding ribbon is from Paper Sweeties as well as those oh so pretty holly sequins.
The Joy is from Paper Sweeties Joy Sweet Cuts. I just love this font and especially love it in this metallic gold paper.
So stop on over and check out the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. So much great artwork to see here and at all of these other challenges. I think it's time you give it a try! Oh and THANK YOU to everyone that's been stopping and saying hi and spreading the love over the last few days (and always really)! It really is so much fun to read your messages!
