3 Ways With Sketches - No.3

Hello friends
Today I'm featuring the final card that I created from this sketch.

I've turned it upside down and given it a fancy bottom!
Classic Petal Edgeabilities®
Also featuring Classic Scalloped Circles.
The papers used here are Kaisercraft - Turtle Dove and talking of papers,
yesterday's card and gift box were My Minds Eye - Miss Charlotte collection -
that wood-grain paper is so brilliant, I keep thinking of  different uses for it.

I purchased my first Christmas gift yesterday!  It is something for one of my boys -
this will be a test to see if they read my blog and now go in search! 

I'm heading off to my crafty studio to prepare Friday Die Day, I do it on a
Wednesday because London work gets in the way at the end of the week.
I'm also going to organise some demos for Ally Pally on Sunday, I suspect it could be flowers... :)
Have a lovely day.

Great card Christine,lovely coloured papers.
Well done for getting in your first pressie,my advice........
Don't forget where you hide it!
Many a year my children have opened their presents & I've sat there thinking I'm sure I got them ........... Then I find it whilst looking for something else!
Have a great day at your studio,wish I could come to Ally Pally maybe next year have fun though.

Hi Christine,
wonderful card. Lovely how you can adapt a sketch. Good to see you've started your Christmas shopping. Well a busy lady like you needs to start early. I started very early one year, and like Kelly forgot I had bought some things so grandchildren got extra that year.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Love the sketch and the card. Its a great way to use up those little bits of paper that we love and cant bear to throw away

Wish I was at Ally Pally but its a tad too far for me

Well done on starting your Christmas shopping, present buying would be so easy if all my family and friends had a Grand Calibur lol...xxxxxx

Morning Christine, lovely card today & thanks for the sketch, they come in handy if you loose your mojo a bit. What a nuisance when work gets in the way of enjoying yourself. Have a good day.

Hi Christine, I like the simplicity of this card, useful when making lots of Christmas cards.The idea of using a sketch is good, by using different papers and dies etc. it changes the whole look to each individual card.
I'm off to take the dogs for a walk whilst the sun shines, then I'm coming back to have a crafty session in my craftroom ( ME TIME)prbably the only chance this week! Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x

You've done it again Christine - I would have passed these papers by for a Christmas card! You have such a brilliant imagination - they look wonderful on this design and the card looks really really christmassy!! Love it.

Hi Christine, the fancy bottom on your card is beautiful and love the papers too. Tomorrow I am posting my lovely plaque that I made with your kit, the paper yesterday reminded me that I hadn't done it. Crafty hugs, Anne x
