awesome, am i right? so it was no problem at all to whip up a little something special with such a helpful and inspiring road map:
(vintage: birch tree illustration from an old copy of "ideals" magazine + square doilies + funky dogwood flowers; patterned paper: pink paislee, basic grey, crate paper, ki memories, crafty secrets; brads: my mind's eye; reindeer die: tim holtz; snowflake dies: spellbinders; ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine)
i went with a reindeer not only because that MIGHT be my all-time favorite tim holtz die; but also, i wanted one more shot at our "holiday creature feature" prompt over at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥; there's still time for you to get in on it, as well, it runs through6pm (est) on halloween!
something else that's well worth doing by wednesday night is making something inspired by laurel seabrook's current challenge:
how gorgeous is that ♥PINK♥ vintage royal typewriter?! are you swooning, as i am, just at the thought that some of those still exist somewhere in the world? i think my inspiration was quite clearly-- and quite literally-- EVERYTHING about this, from the colors, to the flower details, to the rounded corners on the photo itself!
and of course the sketch is soooooooooooo very fab that i followed it straight down the line... though obviously in my own laureny and super-embellished sort of way! i hope you will hop over to merry monday and see the rest of the amazing DT's lovely creations, and then start planning your own holiday sketch card, i can't wait to see what ♥YOU♥ will make!
