Round and round and round and...

Hey guys! Happy Survivor Day!
Will Coach get voted off tonight? One can only hope.

Here's what I've got to share with you today -
A new sketch from Amy... I finished up all of the cards for my Mother-in-law yesterday, so I thought I'd share another one with you today.
Very clean and simple. I really like it.
For this one, I stamped out a mini paper crane image in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Brilliant Blue and Elegant Eggplant. Then I punched each one out with a 1" circle and layered it on top of a 1 3/8" circle. Four of the 1 3/8" circles fit perfectly in a vertical row on the front of a standard card - just in case you didn't know. Instead of a strip of paper under the circle elements, I decided to keep it simple and make score marks on either side. I did 3 on each side and spaced them 1/8" apart. The sentiment was stamped in white Craft ink and means "thank you" in Japanese. guessed it.
ANOTHER Christmas card!
For those of you who may not know, I made a deal with myself back in the middle of March to create a Christmas card in addition to ANY card that I make for a sketch challenge. I've already got about 30 done!! Yay me!

Here's the Christmas version of today's sketch...
For this one I used my favorite little flour bags from Hambo. The gingerbread image is from an SU hostess set in the last catalog called "Deer Friends" and the cookie sentiment is from a stamp I picked up in the $1 bin at a craft store in Hawaii. I used my Stamp-A-Majig to make the sentiment fit the area that I wanted it in - LOVE that thing!

I have Christmas cookie swap every December and may use these as my invitations this year.
Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be back tomorrow with a new recipe to Fool Your Family.
