Joy!

Imagine my surprise when I logged in to my blog today and discovered I had over 270 views.  I'm a small time blogger who has 40ish views on a good day.  I knew something was up to have that many views this early in the morning.  Something is up.  My card was chosen as a winner for Mojo Monday!!!! How exciting!  I'm pretty sure it is random generated numbers that caused me to win, but I'm still excited.  If you are viewing my blog from Mojo Monday, I just wanted to say thank you.  I hope you'll like what you see and come back often.


Today's card uses another sketch challenge, but I wasn't in time to enter their contest.  I do love using sketches, as you probably know by now.




The colors for my card came directly from the Snow Festival DSP.  I've used this paper pack a lot for my Christmas cards this year.  I just love the color combo in it.  It's classic, yet updated.  



It's hard to capture in the photo, but I played with my Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint in a new way on this card.  I've used it in a spritzer bottle with some rubbing alcohol before, but this time I took a sponge and applied it directly to my embossed cardstock.  Oh my!  The shimmer and sparkle is divine.  Why haven't I tried this sooner?  It probably would have been on every Christmas card I made this year.  :)


I'm not sure this card fits the CAS look that Freshly Made Sketches is going for, but it fits my style, and that's what creativity is all about.  It's making your creation be a reflection of you and your style in some way. 

Creative Blessings,
Heather North
