Winter Basket

Happy Monday! I figure we need to keep a positive attitude about Mondays. After all, if our lives were counted by weekends, we'd only have 52 in a year. Think of all that we'd miss!

Today's card follows Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #46. This is my first time playing in Mercy's sketch challenge, and it won't be my last! I just LOVE a good sketch challenge to get the juices flowing!

My card also fits the challenge at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Digi Day Challenge #1 at SNR Card Universe. I know I'm a wee bit behind in submitting my card, but there's still time for YOU to play, too, and get this adorable FREE DIGI designed by the sweet Leah Cornelius! All you have to do is feature holly somewhere in your card, and you can use any stamps you want (but if you have some Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, why not show them some love?). Your card must be uploaded to the SNR website by Thursday morning.

My card features another wonderful digi stamp by Leah called Pinecones & Holly. It's a bit difficult to see in the photo, but I put a touch of glitter on the pinecones and berries. It really sparkles IRL. The DP is, of course, Cosmo Cricket (love love love Cosmo Cricket) and the cardstock by Prism.

Speaking of which, TODAY is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps 2nd Birthday, and there's LOTS going on to celebrate at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps forum at Papercraft Planet. Come join us for challenges, prizes, lots of fun, and to wish Korin a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I'll be back soon with more to share. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a berry tweet day!

Hi there Lisa,
I love this card. That basket is just perfect and the DP you have used fit just beautifully.
I like the look of Mercy's sketch so I am heading on over to have a look at the site next.

So beautiful! Love your take on Mercy's sketch! Wish I had a chance to play this week, but with 2 sick little ones and I'm sick too AND I have to work AND my DD has taken over my office as her bedroom, my craft time is scarce. I'm living vicariously through you and your awesome work! So inspiring! :)

I love your card! It is so beautiful. I love sketch challenges, too. They are my favorite kind of challenge. I can't seem to make anything without a sketch to get me going. Mercy does make some good sketches. Have a great day!!! :)

Beautiful card, Lisa! I love the colors and the music note paper. I am just back from WA visiting my daughters, and thought I'd stop by for a visit. It's been a while. Hope all is well with you!
