something completely sketchy thursday different!

yes, you've guessed it, i've combined two challenges for this one, and i think it has made the card in question twice as cool! :) but then, if you have a plan from sketchy thursdays you're already halfway there, right?


how FAB are the little banner flags? and the offset mats? yeah! i was already pretty psyched just seeing that thing...but then...i found out that this week's theme at something completely different is LET IT SNOW! and of course, like everyone else, what i need to do right now is make holiday cards!!! so i did. see?

(patterned paper: my mind's eye, echo park, dcwv, love elsie, basic grey; glossy cardstock: ranger; stickers: echo park; bling: recollections; border punches: ek success, martha stewart, recollections; snowflake punches: paper source, martha stewart, chipboard sentiment: fancy pants; inks: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)

almost everything on here is leftover from either the november pixie dust paperie kit, SNOW SHOE; or the december one, which is just previewing today on the PDP blog! so i've got loads of lovely xmas goodies from there...and a few leftovers from my regular stash of holiday fun, so i say: SNOW FAR, SNOW GOOD! ♥♥♥

    I always love it when I see we've got a Lauren creation on our Mr. Linky!!! I just know it's going to be some mm mm goodness!

    So, do you give away your cards or hoard them all for yourself?? If you give them away, those are some seriously lucky ducky people!!!
