frosty greetings...


I love sketch challenges, don't you?

Well, has Pam have a sketch for YOU!!!

LOL...when I first saw the sketch I went "what?!"....I can't wait to hear what Rose has to say...that chicklet cracks me up!

So, I pondered what to do...I always start off with my paper and then just "go for it"...that's exactly what happened with today's card. I hadn't used my MME holiday paper lately so I decided to play with them. The diecuts in the set really helped in my card design...the ZVA crystal swooshes topped it off.

Although I always seem to use my Heidi Swapp distressor, one of my crafty pet peeves is the perforated dealio that is left behind on diecuts from whole sheets...am I making any sense? They totally stick out like a sore thumb so I try to get rid of them by distressing the edges. You might not notice but I do have a smidge of Bo Bunny on the card..the blue polka dot circle...found it on my desk top and it coordinated with the MME...and it was already glittered up...look very closely...on the edges, there IS glitter....just a smidge, perfect since I have so many 'other things going on'....

  11. I am not sure, but I think Pam may need some medical attention (wink wink).

    You did a great job with this funky sketch. Love all the elements! I know what you mean about the goobers left when you punch out the die cuts. I sand mine off with my sanding block.
