2S4Y Weekly Sketch--Laura's Sketch 10

I had the morning to myself today since my husband took my son into daycare early. Even though I was tempted to go back to bed at 6:30am, I figured I was up so I'd make the most of my free time. I was able to clean both bathrooms (including the floors), wash a load of laundry, and drink three cups of coffee which is probably 2&1/2 cups too many. I was also able to make my card for this week's sketch challenge at 2 Sketches 4 You.


I used textured blue cardstock (Archiver's, maybe?), holiday patterned paper (Provo Craft), "happy holidays" sentiment (Katie & co $1 Michael's stamp), crimped die cut stars (Sizzix die and Fiskars crimper), ribbon from my stash, and zig zag stitching with my trusty Bernina.

On another note, my giveaway on the EtsyGreetings blog starts today! Just stop by the blog and leave a comment about my Etsy shop to be entered to win one of my handmade cards.
