Sketchy Fun!!

Hey Everyone,

I may have seemed a little quiet on the crafting front these past few weeks, but I have definitly been up to my elbows in card making. This past weekend my mom and I hosted a card party fundraiser and raised over $650.00. It was amazing!! All of the money raised is being used to help our "adopted" family that we recieved through the Food Bank and Christmas bureau. Thank you ladies for making this such a wonderful event!!

But what I am really hear to do today is show you a few fun sketches to help you get in the mood for Christmas cards. These are original sketches by yours truely. I will post the sketches here today and later on, I will show you what I have done with them. If you would like to play along and show me what you come up with, please leave a comment and I will pop over and check out how you interpretted the sketches.

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Have a good day,

Fab 'n Funky - All White in the Night

Good Morning Everyone,

Another great Wednesday morning. It's only great becasue of two things :
1. It's like Thursday today becasue Friday is stat holiday for Remeberance Day
2. It's new challenge day at Fab 'n Funky

This week we were challenged to create a card using ONLY WHITE AND 1 OTHER COLOR. Acckk. I love colors. All sorts of colors. I love mixing and matching colors so this was a REAL challenge for me. I found some great patterned paper in my stash (from last year) and went to work.

I used an adorbale image from our sponsor this week. Stamp Fairy. Isn't this snowman just too cute for words. Althought I didn't mix too many colrs I ended up LOVIN' where this card ended up. 

Here are the Copic markers I used to color him :

I hope you will all run over and join our challenge this week.
We would love to have you!!

Have a great week.
