Wow! Time is flying! It’s like our clocks get set on fast forward during the two weeks before Christmas. We have one last sketch for you for 2014 at Freshly Made Sketches, and our Australian friend, Narelle Farrugia has a great one for us. She is so talented with layers, so it is fitting that she has given us a sketch with some fun layers:
My husband and I both lead small groups of 10th graders at our church each week. This is our second year to do this, and I really love it. I am amazed at the faith that some of these youth exhibit while only being 15-16 years old, and I admire their commitment to develop their relationship with Christ. One of the boys in my group gave me a Christmas gift so I needed to make a thank-you card.
I thought that since it was for a Christmas gift, I could use Christmas themed stamps. That also made it a little easier to make a masculine card since many Christmas sets are pretty gender neutral.
I thought this sketch was perfect for pulling out some of my leftover dsp. Both of these patterns came from the Trim the Tree dsp stack. I used my Festival of Trees stamp set and coordinating punch for the focal image. The “thanks” is from a stamp in the Lots of Thanks stamp set.
We hope you’ll join us in this last challenge of the year. We’ll be back on January 7th with an all-new sketch for you. Meanwhile, you can drop by the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration from the design team.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
