SC152 And Hannah

So, last night after my blog post I did take a little detour and went to bed really satisfied with myself, my card? it just felt good to play for awhile and I liked what I came up with.

I have a friend that I had this card in mind for and actually took it to her this morning. She loved it.

I haven't done a sketch challenge in ages and have really missed them. The Hannah images are big enough I thought she'd work out nicely using SC152 and I was right. My card size is an A6 and I think the sketch challenges are made for the A2 size cards. I like the bigger palette to work with. I remember back to a time when I couldn't cover that much space! I can now...

I've worked on Christmas cards today and this batch of 40 is progressing nicely. I stopped and took a break when the kids got out of school. We visited our local scrapbook store, today was it's last day in operation. I'm sorry to say it's just a memory now. The town I live in is pretty small so supporting a scrapbook store didn't work out.

I did buy some georgous Basic Grey Stella Ruby paper for 75% off that will be fun to use for classes. I picked up some spools of ribbon and other odds and ends too. I spent my twenty bucks wisely! Supply List: Stamps by Hannah, Paper - White, Confetti White, Nut Brown, Stampin' Up! retired designer paper. Ink - Noir Black, Basic Brown, Accessories - Copic markers, Copic Spica glitter markers, Primas, Brad.

I've never done paper piecing before, it's really fun! Her dress and 2 of the bags are the Stampin' Up! retired designer paper. Funny how you keep something like that around for years not knowing what to use it for and then...

We are getting rain here this evening, it's a "winter" storm for us. The high tomorrow is supposed to be 61 degrees, brrrr. Sounds silly, I know.

Have a great weekend, I'll be back with you soon.

Hi Jane;
Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. It's GREAT to actually have other people read my blog.

Yes, I can make the pictures bigger. And I will make them clickable but that night I just didn't. Sorry.

Love the card! Great job on both the sketch and the paper piecing. I did both challenges as well...but on two different cards. I love the look of paper piecing but had the cutting out. But yours looks great.
