Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 291 (TSSC291)

Welcome to my weekly sketch challenge!  I am so happy you stopped by today and hope you find time to play along.  It is hard to believe we are already in December--seems like I just got used to writing 2013 on things and we are really close to 2014-- CRAZY!  Good thing some things stay the same--like my weekly sketch challenge and all the talented design team and players!  So thankful for all of you.  Here is this week's sketch....

A nice simple one--I chose to make mine a 4 1/4" square card. I love making this size and love to make matching envelopes from our regular envelopes--don't know how--see my tutorial here!

I so love this cute little snowman--actually I love any snowman but this one is particularly cute!  The base of the card is Island Indigo and is 4 1/4 by 4 1/4--on top of that I have attached a 4 by 4 card made with 8" by 4" Whisper White.  So only the white part opens and the base stays attached to the back of the white.  Just a bit different for a change of pace.  The snowman is from the Snow Day stamp set and the greeting is from the Greetings of the Season Stamp set.  Now lets take a look at what the fabulous design team has done with the sketch.....

So fun!  I am always amazed at their talent!  Awesome samples.  Now it is your turn to play along and here are some basic rules of play.....
  1. You have a full week to play along!
  2. Create a new card using the sketch as your inspiration.
  3. Use any products you choose.
  4. Add your card to your blog or other on-line spot and link back to this challenge.
  5. Come back here and add a direct link to your sample for the challenge and NOT you home page of your blog--people will not look for your challenge card--trust me.
  6. And this one is not really a rule but a request--get rid of that word verification!  It makes it hard for us to comment on your samples.  It is easier for you to delete the spam then for us to jump through tons of hoops to comment.  If your put your comments on moderation you do not have to worry about spam--you will have the option to delete it BEFORE it ever goes on your blog so you will ALWAYS be safe!
  7. Have fun and tell you friends to play too!

    Thanks, Mary Jo
