52CCT - Sketch Challenge #17

Hello dear friends and followers - hope your weekend is starting off to be absolutely fabulous. I know that I'm always happy to see Saturday but sad because I can't figure out why the weekends go by so much faster than the rest of the week.  I'm hoping to spend some quality time in my craft room with some new supplies I got making some cards for future challenges that I'm a DT member on.  Be watching to see what I make to share with you in the near future.  My daughter will be at a sleepover so that means I can stay up all night if I want to just crafting to my heart's content.  Sigh...such a shame to be so addicted to this hobby - but it could be so much worse - right? :o)

This week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown (52CCT) we have a sketch challenge for you.  I usually try to follow sketches quite literally, but this time I've chosen to make a couple interpretations to Mynnette's fabulous sketch.  We encourage you to make the sketch your own as well - keep it clean and simple or layer and bling it up or flip it vertically - but we do still want to see that basic bones of the sketch.  I think you can still see the sketch in my card - what do you think? 
Not sure if you realize this but... here it is May already and that means that Christmas is only 7 months away! Here in Montana we still are getting snow sometimes and it feels like Christmas at least once a week it seems - LOL.   Do you have your Christmas cards started yet?  If  you decide to play along with us this week and each week thereafter you will have a great stash all ready by the time Christmas gets here and you won't have to stress about making some at the last minute.  What a bonus right?  If you are one of our regulars for this challenge you know exactly what I mean and I hope you will keep playing with us.  

Please pop on over to the 52CCT challenge site and see what the rest of the lovely ladies on our DT have made.  I can't wait to see what you share with us this week. Til next time.. hugs and happy crafting.  


  1. I love the colors you used, and that cute little tree. I hope that you can get some crafting done while your daughter's at her sleepover! I will be attempting the same, here at home with all my kids. :) I got a huge order yesterday and if felt like Christmas. I can't wait to dig in!

  2. Danielle, I LOVE your fun colors, papers, and images! This is just darling! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

    PS: If you're interested, I have a DT call going on for a new challenge called House of Cards! I'd love it if you'd consider entering! :)

  3. We both went a little 'off piste' with the sketch this week, but I can definitely see it in yours. love that little tree and the colours are so fresh for a holiday card. Just love it!
