Here’s the sketch we have today…had lots of fun with it and ended up making a couple different cards with it that I’ll show another time!



Here’s mine for today using the Host set, Merry Patterns…only available with a $300 order thru the end of October!



  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Garden Green cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Crumb Cake, a 3/4 x 4-1/2 strip of Quilted Christmas Designer Paper was placed towards the top.
  • Two trees from the Quilted Christmas DSP were hand-cut out of the paper and added on top.
  • The deer from Merry Patterns was stamped with Real Red ink on Whisper White and hand-cut.  (Don’t you LOVE that pattern sweater look on her?  I do!)
  • The 1/8″ Whisper White ribbon was placed around her neck and tied in a bow.  She is popped up on the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Merry Christmas from that set was stamped with Memento Black Ink.
  • And, because I have an issue with things being “grounded”, I added a little watercolor Crumb Cake ink under the deer.
  • Finally, a few rhinestones are scattered in the background.


OK…check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!
