Hope the new year is starting off well for you all. I've been pretty quiet lately, both here and while visiting other blogs. Just been in a reflective mood with the Christmas season and all and I'm trying to get my priorities straightened out and as a result I feel like I'm pulling back a bit and feeling kind of anti-social. Hopefully that will pass soon (the anti-social bit... not the priorities). ;)
Anyways, I'm here to share a couple of cards I've made for Lucy's week of sketches. I LOVE working with sketches as it takes away some the work of planning but I always feel like I'm cheating when I use them so I don't use them often. Thanks for giving me a reason to do so, Lucy. :)
Here's Lucy's first sketch:
Here's my take on it:
Here's Lucy's second sketch:
Here's my card:
I'm hoping I have a chance to play with the rest of the sketches too. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Beautiful cards Sarah! Love the green patterned paper in your second card, and great idea with sewing through the flags in the first! I know what you mean about the impact of Christmas and the end of the year. I always feel a "shift" in my life at that point in time. Sometimes I follow that "feeling", and sometimes I go straight back to getting stuck in a rut!
Hi Sarah. Nice to see a post from you! Love your cute flag banner! That patterned paper on your second card is wonderful with the kraft colored tag! I think sometimes there is so much hustle and bustle around the holidays with lots of people, planning and festivities, that it's a normal thing to feel a bit anti-social afterward. Take care of you and everything will fall into place soon enough. Hugs!
Aw... these two cards are super awesome! I was hoping to see how you used the banner stamps!! You did NOT disappoint----ever! :) You rock, Sarah! HAppy New Year! xo
Happy New Year to you, Sarah!!! Your cards are beautiful, love them both!! Vanessa x
Happy New Year to you and your family, Sarah! Love both of your cards!
Happy New Year Sarah, wishing you all the best for 2011. I hope that your christmas was wonderful. I adore the two cards you made for Lucy's challenge :D xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Love your flag banner - great take on the sketch - and the other card is gorgeous - like the simple style ;)
These are FABULOUS Sarah - love that line of stitching on card 1 especially... Happy new year to you and your family, and thank you for playing along. You rock.
You described my feelings lately, too - must be the holidays let down. I'm slowly getting back into the rhythm of blogging again.
Love both of these - I'm hoping to bookmark Lucy's sketches for a later time. Hugs!
So nice to see you back to blogging again my friend and what a start, what beauties are these cards, just love your take on the sketches, hugs!
