Peace ~ Sketch Saturday

Sketch Saturdays - Page 141

Happy Saturday Everyone! Here is my card for this week’s Sketch Saturday. Our sponsor this week is my dear friend Sandra Dry! Please check out her awesome digi stamps.

This is the last DT card that I had due before the Christmas break so I wanted to make something extra-special with a wonderful sentiment. I decided to use this stamp from last year’s Magnolia Lucia collection. It is not a new stamp but it is new to me.  It is called Tilda as Lucia and is available -->here<--at the Stamp Shoppe. The music stamp that serves as the background is also from a 2008 Magnolia collection.  I stamped it out and then sponged and distressed the edges of my paper. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy.  J0’s wonderful sketch  helped create the rest of the card!

My children are now on Christmas break now and my DT obligation are over until after the New Year  so I probably will be blogging very sporadically over the next few weeks as I spend time with them and my family.

I am no where near to being where I wanted to be in my Christmas preparations and I am afraid many of my blogging friends will be receiving late cards from me! Next year I will start earlier (didn’t I say that last year too? LOL)
