One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Festive Friday Challenge # 8 "Sweet" & Retro Sketches

I am playing along with the sketch from Retro Sketches # 63, which you can access HERE and also the Festive Friday Challenge which can be accessed HERE.  The trigger word for Festive Friday is "sweet" I pulled out this sweet little gingerbread (yummy!) and stamped him on kraft paper...I added the sweet little candy and put some rock candy stickles on the ends of the 'wrapper' you see the bit of smear?  Yes before it was dry and I was taking the picture, it fell face forward...darn...I am always too impatient to wait!

paper:  PTI pure poppy, PTI sugar plum pattern paper, kraft, white
ink:  pure poppy, dark chocolate, royal velvet
stamps:  Tremendous Treats:  Christmas, Sweet Baby, Wonderful Words:  Birthday, Background Basics: Christmas, MFT Right this Way


  1. Love your card. So cute....

  2. Adorable! I love the paper you used behind your image, as well. The candies are the perfect touch, even if they did smear a little! *wink* Thanks for playing with us again!!

  3. Great colours and images for this challenge! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Festive Friday!

  4. So cute, Colleen! I love the colors and patterns in that PTI paper...always have...but never got it for myself. I think it's the lavender they've included that gives it such a bright and cheery look! A sweet card, happy to see you back with it!!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
