It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our crafty pilot friend, Jennifer Timko, is our hostess. Take a look at this fun sketch:
While looking for a long image, vertical image to work with this sketch, I grabbed my Alpine Adventures set. Since I live in Texas, snow skis are not exactly what comes to mind when I think of Christmas, but I do think they would make great Christmas decorations.
I started with a piece of Festive Farmhouse dsp and mounted it on a Cherry Cobbler card base. The skis were stamped with Soft Suede ink and die cut with the coordinating Alpine Sports thinlits.
I inked one of the Festive Farmhouse Elements with Cherry Cobbler ink and a sponge dauber and placed it on the card for the sentiment. The “Christmas” comes from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch. We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

We were totally on the same wavelength this week! 🙂 I almost used the skis! Love your version!
Gorgeous card Amy! You and Linda were totally thinking like twins!!! I do love that paper and that stamp set though and am getting some great ideas!!!! I think I’d trade my snowy Christmas for your not snowy Christmas for a year or two!!!
Beautiful card and such gorgeous, warm colors! The wreath on the skis is the perfect touch,.
Oh, plaid is a favorite theme for me on Christmas cards! And I love that you used skis as your focal point. They may not be something a Texan thinks of when it comes to Christmas but here in New England they are a definite hit!
