Hello and welcome to 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday!!! 

Our sponsor for this week is the super duper fun E.A.D  Designs!!!!

Their products r-o-c-k...I might be a smidge partial:) but REALLY their stuff is FABulous!  If you've been following my blog, you probably know that I'm on the E.A.D Designs team.
One random participant for the week will win a $20 Gift Certificate for the  E.A.D Designs store!
Okay, here's the sketch for the week:

I instantly saw a pocket card, did you?

I decided to play with the E.A.D Designs Music Doodles Stickerz.  I teamed it up with Cosmo Cricket's Wanted line. 

So, we're going to be celebrating my older brother's birthday this Saturday...he's gotten into the whole Mac thing...loves his iPad...thinking of moving to a Mac desktop dealio...evidently he's become an iTunes-aholic....a download king...soooooo what could be better for him but an iTunes gift card.

I picked up a bunch of iTunes cards from Target on Black Friday {ssshhh...don't tell him but the $25 ones were selling for $20)....the potential drawback is that those puppies are purple...grrr...totally clashes with my color scheme...hence why you don't actually see the iTunes cards in my pic {haha}..

Okay, you see that blue band?  It is actually slide-able...a belly band...the ribbon is from Sherry {who is my Flashback Friday 5.0 Sponsor!}.

Don't you love the Music Doodles?!  Seriously perfect for my bro...

You may have already read the 365 Cards scoop...I've decided to step down from the most wonderful Design Team...I'll be honest, I'm having a hard time writing down the words to communicate what I'm feeling...

I have to say that 365 Cards was the start of my true Design Team wonderfully managed...great group of gals..but in a nutshell, it feels right to move on...I'm NOT going to say good-bye because I still plan on playing along in the challenges...

Okay, okay, up is my Echo Park Paper Self-Challenge card #5:

All the paper is Echo Park's Everybody Loves Christmas...the snowman sticker is from the same set...The 'Hello' is from E.A.D Designs' Saying Hello Sentiment Stickerz.

December Daily 3

I LOVE buying new Christmas Decorations BUT I already have sooo much, kwim?  I couldn't resist this metal red star that I found at Target on Black Friday..

I love how the star looks against my milk chocolate painted front door....such a festive way to welcome friends and family.  What do you have on your front door?

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!


  1. Fabulous cards Amy :) x

  2. oh, what fun to watch how your artful world has expanded over the last few years when we first shared our love for chandeliers, my friend. We have a history out in cyberspace and the real world. I cherish that and have enjoyed how your style has grown and all the opportunities you seized and were made better for the hard work you put in and made those teams, blogs better for selecting YOU. It's not goodbyes, but see you down the road...and I'm along for the ride, can't wait to see where your art takes you.

    Blessings, my old bloggy friend
