papertake sketch challenge...

Once again blogger ate my post and failed to deliver as scheduled on Tuesday morning.  Sorry about that.  Maybe my new years resolution should be to check my blog more frequently...

Good morning all.  Hope that you had a wonderful Christmas.  For us it was wonderful with a large portion of the family gathered around us, still sad that some couldn't join us, but wonderful never the less.  It was fun to see the delight of the littles and the bigs alike Christmas morning and to join with our church family Christmas Eve at candlelight service.  Now we are enjoying the school break, playing with our new toys and enjoying a bit of snow.  Blessings all!

Being Tuesday it is once again time for another Papertake Weekly challenge.  This weeks challenge is another fabulous sketch from our own Dawny P.  Why don't you give it a shot and play along with us.

December Our Daily Bread Designs new release blog hop...

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs December new release blog hop! If you got here from Grace's blog, you are in the right place! If not, you should start at the ODBD blog so you don’t miss a thing! There are lots of goodies up for grabs this month…. so be sure to follow the rules listed on the ODBD blog to qualify to win one of the prizes!


I was really thrill to see the new releases for this month, especially this verse stamp.  I am an avid reader, in my free time, and have been since I was a little girl.  One of my all time favorite authors is Laura Ingalls Wilder.  I spent many a day as a girl curled up with one of her books so I just had to make my first card of the month using this quote from the Simple Things stamp set.  Once again I have chosen to go simple for my card.  Just the verse and some wonder Basic Grey and BoBunny designer papers

Now make sure you head on over to visit Dawn's blog and see what loveliness she has to share with you.
What I used:
SU bashful blue and early espresso
Versafine black, Ranger antique linen
SU ribbon
Spellbinders and Grand Calibur
