JCBC Week #26 --- Sketch by yours truly :)

Hello dear ones. I have to start by saying a big, big "Thank You!" to all of you who left comments on my previous post. I was really amazed to see so many and containing such wonderful words. You all ROCK! :D

For today I'm going to show the two cards I made with my sketch, for Week #26 at our lovely challenge blog - Just Christmas and Birthday Cards.
It will be a very quick and short post as there's nothing much to explain about the cards. They are simple and quite plain. :) I thought the sketch was "complex" enough so I didn't use too much extras, apart from the required papers/layers and image.

Off we go...

My Christmas card



I loved the colour of this Core'dinations cardstock and thought I'd let it shine by itself. The small DP square is from Dove craft, stampprint - Magnolia, sentiment stamp - See D's. The corners are stamped with small holy leaves [See D's also] on which I added tiny holy leaves punched from green pearlescent cardstock. A square of glitter-y cardstock and some glitter glue on the boy's wings and around the lamp. :)


My Birthday card



Last week I've received these awesome Basic Grey - "Marrakech" papers from my sweet friend Chris and I just HAD to use them a.s.a.p. :D Thank you Chris!
The white paper with small flowers is from Basic Grey's "Boxer" collection (from stash).
Stamp is from the Critter Party set by Penny Black.
Sentiment stamp from Imaginisce.

Thank you for passing by and for being my daily support. :)

Your sketch is great, I will get back to use it at some stage (probably for the next card I need to make).

Love your stamped images and colouring as usual, (that's coming from a stamp-er-at-heart ;))

Lovely selection of cards altogether. It's always a treat to visit your blog.

Hi Mada, hope you're well and have had a good week? Lovely to speak to you again, I appreciated the birthday phone call so much! Your card is wonderful, I love the sketch and I'm so glad you found a use for the paper, it's looking good with Edwin! I just got a new follower on my blog, Fred who I think is one of your blogging buddies too and I saw a card she posted there that you made, WOW it's amazing Mada! I think you need to put it on your blog too when you get time! You did such a fantastic job with those gorgeous digi's and they're so cute. Take care dear friend, I hope all is well with you, have a good weekend, big hugs, Chris xxx
