iSpy Sketch #26

Hi there! Are you having a great week? It’s all of a sudden gotten REALLY HOT here and I’m sorta melting, but luckily I have a couple of comforts to cool me down: homemade Pina Coladas, A/C in our bedroom, and Starbucks Frappuccinos. Oh yah, AND MAKING CHRISTMAS CARDS!!

July 27 - ISSC26 is from Therese Calvird and is based on this card

In addition to this week’s sketch I played along with the current Paper Smooches Sparks challenge found here. I loved the colours (a lot of kraft) and the simplicity.. I also loved being able to pull out my Kim Hughes Christmas stamps (the deer is in one of the Paper Smooches Kismet set (Happy Camper) and the sentiment an holly are from an old CHF set..

Here is how to play:
  • Create a paper crafting project (card, scrap book page or 3D item), based on the sketch provided.Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery using a code ISSC26, and link it here with the inlinkz widget below.
