I'm happy to report that summer has officially started here in the Clark household! We finished our standardized testing and I successfully homeschooled my 3rd and 6th graders into smart little graduates of Clarks Academy :) Now we get to spend the summer pursuing our interests. One will learn guitar and Java script, the other will be learning small engine repair (my 9 year old!), and I will be hopefully catching up on scrapbooking and revving up my crafty mojo with some new SU goodies. Soon! Oh, and gardening.
What's a sunny May day without a look ahead to Christmas? I used the Merry Monday sketch to create this clean and simple card.
I decided to go with only red, white and black. Simply using clean lines and dimensionals, I stamped one tree from Lovely As A Tree on one side of the rectangle, and hand cut a tiny cardinal and placed it on a branch. I used the snowy panel to stamp my sentiment, and mounted them on Real Red glimmer paper. Finally, I added (sparingly) Dazzling Diamonds glitter with Tombo multi glue and a fine paintbrush.
You should give the sketch a try! There's some great inspiration over at Lesley's blog.
Have a blessed and creative day! ~ Erika
