Sketch #24 over at the JCBC challenge blog

Goodmorning and happy Monday to you all.
I love Mondays. Peace and quietness at home after very busy weekends.
Because I work every Saturday we only have Sundays together. But the last few weeks we haven't been home on sundays either. So not much time to relax. My day to relax is Monday. Updating my blog, posting another challenge on the JCBC, making drafts for the rest of the week, leave comments on ceveral blogs, answering emails and trying to make a few cards. Doesn't sound like relaxing, but for me it is. So right now I'm 'relaxing'.
Today we have a great new sketch for you to follow over at the JCBC blog. Tanja made a sketch which can be used in so many different ways.
I made a Christmas card using a cute Tilda image form the last Christmas collection. Papers are from My Minds Eye and the stars and gems are from stash.

Tomorrow I will be back showing you a little giftbox I made for my dad's birthday.

I love making altered items like giftboxes, wallet cards, purses and other altered shaped cards and boxes.

I'm planning on posting a few altered items, found on different blogs, every Tuesday. So if you know a someone who posted a cute altered item with tutorial please send me a email (with a link to that project) so I can make a post about it.

Well I'm of to relax a bit more.

Thanks for stopping by today.

xoxo Karin

Hi Karin,

This is beautiful and such a great idea to get these cards done throughout the year rather than the usual panic in November and December - think this was one of my now broken New Year resolutions!!

Have a great week.
