Jingle Sketch

Yep, this week's we're getting sketchy with one of our favorite lovely guest stars ... the talented and always amusing Allison Fillo.

Allison manages a team of writers, trainers and curriculum developers by day and wild jackals by night (aka her children Tristan, Charlotte & Avery).  When she does get to venture into her craft room, she enjoys cardmaking, scrapbooking, and designing periodic sketch challenges for lucky souls like us at Jingle Belles.

Love this sketch:

And here's what we created:

Allison combined some of our favorite wonky snowman paper with pretty holiday ribbon, snowflakes and happy polka dots ... so festive and fun.

Stephanie says, "I cut into some of my favorite papers from My Mind's Eye I Believe Collection to start my card.  When I attached my top panel to my card base, I realized it was wider than I wanted, so rather than throw it away, I flipped the sketch moving my Hero Arts sentiment to the top for better balance.  I love my new little Sweet Petites Bells from Die-versions."

Lauren says, "I constructed my card using scraps, which just happened to look better on the horizontal than the vertical, so I took Allison's gorgeous sketch and went W*I*D*E with it! The diecut poinsettias were also leftovers, so I let them dictate my choice of accent colors. a little vintage sheet music, a scrap of lace, some machine stitching to make sure ALL the layers stay put... et voila!"

And now we cannot wait to see what you create using Allison's fabulous holiday sketch ... we hope you have fun creating.  Make sure you link-up here before 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, September 11th. Keyword for the Jingle Belles Flickr Group (and other galleries) is JB:13:18.

And we'll even send a few little Christmas goodies to one lucky participant.

Fabulous inspiration and a great sketch. Will make another attempt at joining in. I really need to add to my as yet very poor stash of Christmas cards.
