page plans sketch day

Good Sunday morning everyone! I am really finding these Page Plans sketches to be so much fun! I hope that you are trying them with me! I've decided to post the sketch along with my card from now on so you can get to work on your card that much faster. So without any more blabber from me...here it is...

I thought for sure I was going to have a hard time with this sketch (instead I'm having problems with next weeks...lol!) but this just really fell together. I got this fantastic stamp at Unity Stamps for the distinct purpose of making a little Christmas gift list for my boys. It is called My Biggest Wish (hmmm...go figure!). This year the DH and I decided to get the kids four gifts (along with their stockings). Inside will be a little saying something like...

On the front of this card please list...
A gift you want
A gift you need
A gift you can wear and
A gift you can read.
Please return your list to me by Thanksgiving.

There are just four lines on the stamped image available so this is perfect! I used paper and self adhesive die cuts from the retired Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' Kit. I'm sure I could have used more layers and such but honestly...are my boys going to care? Probably not...they just want us to know what to get them for Christmas...lol!

So whatcha got in mind for this fun sketch? Whatever it is...have fun with it! I just want you to know that I'm working hard to get my DT work done for the time that I'm gone so if I don't have anything for you tomorrow just stay tuned...I'll be back! Have a great day everyone!

LORIE!!! I LOVE THIS! The first thing that I noticed is there is no black stamping. I get so stuck on stamping black and brown. This is awesome. Maybe I'll have more time soon to play along with the challenges. I'm just so busy for some strange reason :) LOL

Hugs!!

What an awesome and clever idea! I may have to try this with my kiddos when they get older. You are such a talented card maker that I'm sure if you ever tried to do a scrap layout it would be wonderful (referring to your comment on my blog from you). I just know your talent would just naturally spill over into scrapping. Have fun on your vacation!!
