page plans sketch and card

Good morning everyone! I hope your weekend has just been super productive. I think I'm actually doing okay with mine! Yay!

As I'm sure you all remember today is Page Plans sketch day. This week we were asked to use a winter theme. You can see the sketch below and I have to tell you...I had no idea what to do. I sat on this sketch for sometime thinking of different things to do and finally came down to this. I didn't have the sentiment that is shown here so I had to ask Chris (the illustrator of this set, Snowflakes) to help me out. Wish I would have thought ahead and had her stamp the sentiment in Baja Breeze but I still like this card. In addition to the Heidi Grace patterned paper (same as last weeks' sketch) in the snowflake print I turned it over to use the argyle type of pattern for one of the layers as well as Baja Breeze card stock. For embellishment I used some PTI ribbon, Spellbinders Labels 2, SU! felt snowflakes, and the Scribbles Swirls die for my Big Shot.

So...whatcha think you got for this sketch? I'd love it see if you decide to try it. In a couple of weeks there will be a fun challenge from Page Plans for us so I hope that you'll continue checking back on Sundays.

My creating is coming along well for the Sweet N Sassy Stamps blog hop (see side column for details). I really hope you are planning on joining us for the blog hop and the new release party...it is gonna be fun!

Have a super day everyone...see ya tomorrow!

Hi Lorie...this is sensational! Love the label and those snowflakes are wonderful!!

You asked about Kathy...well, she had a little problem with the latop she was borrowing from her boss. It was working fine, until one day she turned it on and it said it needed you to log on with a password and her boss said it should'nt have one. SO, she can't use it, let alone get online to update her new blog. Sad I know! Her boss was going to call the software co. to see what the deal is. HOPE she gets it back SOON!!
