Last Christmas Card and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #88

Last Christmas Card   Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #88
Do you remember when Christmas lasted  a whole week not just a day?  I miss those days!   I have one last Christmas card to see the Holiday Season off! 
Well we have Valentine's Day, Easter, Spring, and so much more  to look forward to. I know I'm pretty excited for my  birthday. I don't know where we are going I just know we are going for a week! My DH is surprising me  this year. I don't think he is going to give me any hints either.  I will keep you updated if I learn anything new!

New Sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog

It's time for a new sketch at  ATLANTIC HEARTS SKETCH CHALLENGE BLOG! Sketch #86 was a lot fun to work with.  I scored the image area to open up and  use the sentiment to hold it closed.  I added a little easel on the back so the card will sit up. I stamped an sentiment inside, too.  See below.
The paper collection is Echo Park Paper Co.  Home for the Holidays.
(Now that I thoroughly confused everyone.)

17 Days Til Christmas and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #85

I can't believe we have 17 days until Christmas!  Who else is excited but sad at the same time? I adore Christmas and everything it represents but I must confess that I do get a little blue  afterwards. Okay, enough chatter. It's Monday and you know what that means....

It's a great one, too! 
I made another Christmas card using The Greeting Farm  Clear Stamp Set Christmas, Queen and Co. Pearls, DCWV  Candy Cane Lane Stack, colored the stars with COPIC R29, inked  the edges of my die cut with Tim Holtz Antique Linen, and stamped sentiment from Recollection Stamp Set.

Happy Birthday and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Today is my DH birthday!  Happy Birthday, A! Love you!
I probably should be posting a birthday card for this  challenge but I'm not! Instead I made a Christmas card.  I have to say I am a true red, white and green  Christmas girl through and through but this black, white and red combination is very pretty, too.

The paper pad I used is DCWV Candy Cane Lane.  The stamps are from the $1 bin at Michaels, the twine is  from Walmart, button is from my stash. 
Here's the sketch for the week! I love it.  I'm entering this into:
