Holly Jolly

Hi girls, today i would like to show you my very first Lily Of The Valley card. whoohooo.. i adore those images for so long but was never really able to make a card with the images sweet Tammi posted to me – i think already twice :-). I would love you to go and see Tammi’s work, she was my all time favorite artist. I have found her work on Splitcoast, long before we even started to blog. Before i forget the image i used on my card is called “Christmas Candle” , i just looked it up. Thaaaannnnks hun :-)

I hope you like this card… omg.. i loved to color something different in, for a change. This little girl is just too cute and she was my first choice to use for Jacque’s wonderful sketch on the Friday Sketcher blog.
The papers are again some sheets from the Kaiser Craft pad “ Dear Santa” i had still sitting on my table from the cards i made for the Simply Ribbon store. Everything had to be done just quickly this week. This paper kind of reminds me of the earlier papers from Cosmo Cricket – wished they would come out with some “old fashioned” Christmas prints again. Not that i do enjoy the more modern pads but it would be nice if they would have 2 like Basic Grey does with each release. OH well.. just more STUFF to buy.

~ ribbons are from Simply Ribbon Store
Please email Sharon at to order, including state/zip OR country.~

Holly leaves are a new die by Whiff Of Joy and can be ordered over at Cute Stamps and Cards
Hopefully you find time to play along and post your own creation on the Friday Sketcher blog. This week Motivet is sponsoring us with some REALLY nice candy :-) as usually.

Speaking of
Motivet… there are also some news…. you might know already if you read the blog. Motivet has kind of closed. For now the store will sell still their rubber stamps but in the long run, there are only going to be digi stamps. Stephanie has decided to close the Motivet blog and therefore will no longer be a Design Team. Of course i am very sad about this development. I just adore those cuties.. but at least i know i can get the images later on as DIGI’s. So if you always had an eye on certain images from Motivet… you might want to order now, cause when the rubber is gone, they are gone for good!!!
Thanks Stephanie for having me in the team for the last .. i think almost 2 years? :-) All the best.

The fabulous Sassy Sketcher girls who have made a card for this week are: Aud, Bea, Inge, Jacque, Janneke, Jeanette, Jorunn & Tanja

I have always had issues in setting up a verified phone number with my Craigslist account. I have finally found a service that solves this problem.
They sell [url=]Craigslist Phone Verified Accounts[/url] at the cheapest prices I have ever seen. My experience with them has been exceptional and I highly recommend their service!

Amazing card! So colorful and rich looking. I love every element of it! And, you said things had to be done quickly - certainly not this card! I really enjoyed looking at all the fun parts. Gorgeous coloring!
