52CCT1 January Sketch

As I mentioned last week, I'm hoping to join in with some of the Christmas Card Throwdown weekly challenges this year. The first week of each month is a sketch challenge.


I pulled a few items from my Christmas stash, along with some paper scraps to create my first cards this year. I put my center square together and chose card bases from my stash.


I followed the sketch pretty closely for each card.


I'm very happy with the way each of these turned out! Here's a closer look at the one I'm submitting for the challenge.


Ok, so this is officially the earliest I've ever started creating Christmas cards (last year it was much later in January)!

Well done for you early start! I love the vintage feel to this card, the colours are so cosy! All three are lovely. Thanks for joining us at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

That's a great sketch! Amazing to have three great cards ready 11 months ahead of time. (Can't imagine doing it myself.)

What a brilliant start. I love the bold sentiment in the centre here against the beautiful papers. I think the one you chose to enter is my favourite. We hope to see you again soon. Thanks for joining it at 52CCT.

What a great start - I've got boxes on my desk to clear and am thinking of starting cards as way to ease myself back into creating.
