Dear Santa


Welcome to another 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday.  Check out the DT's different takes on the sketch, perhaps you'll be inspired?  I was also inspired today to finally tackle the mess that was taking over my craft room.  Below is a before and after photo.  As a result of my major tidy up I found a Life Style Crafts QuicKutz nativity embossing folder that I'd love to give away.  Please post a comment on this post saying what you'd write in the "dear santa" note on this card.  I will draw a winner on Wednesday.

Before

After

Materials: LifeStyle Crafts QuicKutz embossing folder, PTI tag it die, Life Style Crafts QuicKutz ornament die, Cosmo Cricket Odds and Ends patterned paper, PTI kraft and chocolate chip paper, Coredinations card stock, EK Success corner rounder,  May Arts natural string

I tried to clean my "craft area" -reads as Guest Bedroom, as my dad is in town, but I told him he'd have to work around the mess. Your card is fantastic!

First I have to say ...wow!!! You did an AMAZING clean up job. I love seeing the 'before" pics because my little space can get so chaotic and it's nice to know I am not the only one!

I would say to Santa, "I would just love to have a couple of dies for Christmas to use with my birthday present the big shot!!!"

I love the before and after! I had to do this today as I couldn't find the thing I use to adhere my gems...it was driving me crazy! On my santa list would be...a gift certificate to Archiver's :) Never have a hard time shopping in there!

What a fantastic card, Erin! I wouldn't know what to do with that sketch. I love your cleanup, too. I see that you put up a framed piece, too! No need to include me in this drawing. I just wanted to pop by and say hello! :)

When did you find time to do that clean up? Looks amazing!
My Dear Santa note would say that I need the elves to pay a visit and clean up my room!
