Caardvarks Jan 1 sketch "Snow Day"
One of my New Year's resolutions is to try some sketch challenges so when I saw this one from Caardvarks on Jen's blog it looked like one I could manage. It was designed by the talented Becky Fleck of Pagemaps. For some reason though I really had a tough time measuring these blocks and gluing them down right this morning so to camouflage some less than perfect margins I decided to do a bit of distressing and tilted the mats somewhat as well. I kinda like the shabby look. LOL The patterned paper came from Bety's Dream Designs and when I saw it it made me think of my BFF Becky in MI who was home on a "snow day" last time I talked to her. Sure wish we were curled up by the fire chatting and sipping tea (or wine depending on the time of day LOL) while the flakes were flying outside. I miss her sooooo much! The other two blocks I cuttled with Swiss dots and the snowflake folders. The large snowflake is also Cuttlebug with a circle punch, 2 foam flakes and a mini heart brad by Queen & Co. on top. I used fine jute to tie on the hand cut tag with the rub on from Cosmo Cricket. This is card #3 for Jen's "card a day challenge". Check out what she's doing HERE and try playing along. She won't mind a late comer.
