We're down to the last few weeks of the 2011 Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch Challenge

for My Favorite Things.  These sketches are a fabulous jump start to a project and a great way to ensure that I get at least a little crafty time during this busy, crazy time of year.  

These sketches are also great because they ensure that I put all my stamps and Die-namics to work.  Today I'm using my Layered Labels Die-namics.  I love the way these three pieces look together.   

I knew I wanted a Christmas sentiment so I could put this Girls Paperie paper from my stash to work... but  none of the sentiments fit in the oval.  Here's a tip.  I actually snipped the sentiment from Inspired by Christmas in half with scissors.  I can place it back in its packaging together so that I can line it up on the block straight for another project, or use it staggered like this.

I was able to leave space for a Let It Snowflake Die-namic.  Honestly, you know I love this die. It's getting a workout lately.  I tend to use the two largest flakes and then add an embellishment to the center. 


Now, you might notice that oh my land, I messed up the sketch, and all I can say is "Yes, yes I did." This is when multi tasking takes me down.  And I'd already stitched the green pennant in place.  So, I was sort of "committed to that layer." So instead of a wide border going down the middle of my card, I've got a skinny one.  But you now what, it's all good, because I stamped, had fun and now I have a Christmas card to mail off to a dear friend. 

I hope you'll join in on the fun by stamping your own creation for MFTWSC50 and adding your sample to the Splitcoaststampers Gallery. You'll want to have your project in by Tuesday, December 20th at noon EST for your chance at the prize!  Visit the MFT Blog for a full list of designers with a sample for you today!
