It's a FRESH new year!

And that calls for Freshly Made Sketches!

Here's the sketch:

And here's what I did with it:

I had the dragonflies from a previous piece of Watercolour Paper on which I did a watercolour wash and the strip of sponged cardstock is from an upcoming blog post (you'll see that tomorrow).

I wrapped a triple length of Linen Thread around the Whisper White layer and stamped the sentiment from the BRAND NEW Dragonfly Dreams using Soft Sky Ink.

Then the whole layer was adhered to the Crumb Cake Base...and just like that, I had a card in less than FIVE MINUTES!!

Now, granted...I had a bit of a head start. But sometimes all you need is a few scraps and you're on your way! Had I needed to sponge the cardstock and create the watercolour wash from scratch, this card probably would have taken me about 20 minutes...which is still MUCH faster than having to drive to the mall, find a parking spot, navigate the crowds to the card store, pick out a card and drive back home. I'm exhausted just thinking about it!!

Why not just create at home? Especially right now during Sale-a-Bration! For every $60 you spend in my store (click the link), you'll get to choose one FREE item from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue!
