{Studio Calico} 09Dec12 Sunday Sketch


I love Christmas but all the prep work is exhausting! I wasn't feeling well all weekend and my son starting coughing again, too. I really miss being well when I'm sick. Oh, health, where are you? :) At least I had time to freely create. It's been ages since that's happened. I chose to play along with the December 9th Sunday Sketch on the Studio Calico Blog. It was great sketch and this is what I came up with, something bright and happy to negate the dreary weather and my mood!

I die cut the navy panel using the Stitched Mat Collection: Rectangles from Lil' Inker Designs, then cut banners from the Abroad 6x6 paper pack. I trimmed straight edges on the two largest ones but followed the lines on the chevron pattern using scissors. For the sentiment, I stamped the word bubble from Hey Y'All and words from Heyday Sentiments. Then I trimmed it and adhered it to the card with foam tape. I finished the card by adhering three wood veneer stars.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all have a great start to your week.

Hope you start feeling better soon Emily! We've been going from hot to cold weather - back and forth - so the boys are all fighting colds. Love the mix/match of papers on your card.

That sucks that you guys aren't feeling well again/still. It's a hard time of year to slow down & take it easy :( I hope you guys manage to...at least school will be out shortly :)
I love this layout - and the stars are too perfect for that sentiment!
