this year, black friday is officially renamed:

pink-n-green sketch card friday!!!!!
(a trend i am sure is just moments from catching on all across the usa!)

yes, having finished kazan's fabulous sketch 14 over at 2S4Y

i am pleased and proud to show you this:

(vintage xmas postcard & sheet music from my stash; cardstock: core'dinations; patterned paper: love elsie & flair designs; cardstock stickers: pebbles inc & making memories; other: foam tape, colorbox inks, zig pen)

once again i have flipped the sketch left-to-right; this time it was at the very last minute when i realized that lining my items up in the other direction not only covered up the adorable reindeer's adorable tail; it also created an unfortunate text accident: the postcard covered up
just enough of the text on the love elsie paper that instead of "noel, noel, noel" it just said, "no no no"...which isn't particularly xmassy, now is it?! :)


  1. i can barely rouse myself from my stuffing coma and here you are plugging away at crafty goodness!!! cute card Lauren:) yes, yes, yes!!!

  2. Lovely card Lauren. No.1 is a big fan of pink'n'green - hence our Christmas tree this year being decorated in those colours :-O x

  3. Text accident! LOL! I hate when that happens!!!

  4. Perfect!! The card I mean. The text accident? Do they NOT proofread over there? WOW, THAT'S CRAZY!!!!
    Those images are awesome!

  5. Love your card! It's both modern and traditional and very fresh.

    I still haven't done this week's sketch. Oops! I better get at it :-)

    Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.

  6. Yes, Yes, YES!!! is alway much better than no, no, no, in my humble opinion.

    Your cards melt the bah-humbug misery inside me and make me a teeny tiny bit excited about Christmas.

    Don't tell anyone I said that though. k?


  7. Sure 'no, no, no' isn't very festive but quite funny ;-)

  8. Oh, wow Lauren! This is too, too cute! LOVE that vintage post card! And Kazan's sketch looks great flipped (I wouldn't want to cover that adorable tail either)!

  9. Preppy is back? Much better than "black friday". I'm all for this new fad :)

    I love your card, of course! It is full of Lauren-y goodness. I am a huge fan of vintage postcards. I love to look at them. (I used to have a friend that collected them. I would look at them for hours.)
