Happy New Year everyone! I know this isn't my first post of 2012, but it is my first Sketch Support post!!!!! I am so happy to be a part of this team for another year. Allison's sketches really inspire me.

This week is card week and here is the sketch that we received to work with.

card(JAN) 2012
I decided to make a 2-page layout instead of a card.


The hanging snowflakes worked perfectly for my page. I added some printouts and bling to the center of each snowflake and used white floss for my stitching.


I found a new designer for some cutting files and printouts. I received a gift certificate from both of my sisters for Christmas so I couldn't wait to use some of them. You can check her out at Kerri Bradford Studio.

I was so inspired by a glitter technique that Christa did recently and I just had to give it a try. I am really not much of a glitter person, but it turned out awesome. I added it to the snowflakes.....just look at them sparkle.


I created the snowman using one of the cutting files. I added some stitching and glittered the snowflake for his hat (I was on a roll with the glitter).


I also added some bling to the border on my page too.


Be sure to visit the Sketch Support site and see what the rest of the team has been up to this week. I will return next week with another 2-page layout.
