Too Early for Christmas Cards?

Summer is my favorite season and I'm not in any rush to start thinking about Christmas but where cards for Operation Write Home are concerned Christmas cards have to be on their way to our heroes no later than October 31st. They need time to reach them and then get written and sent all the way back home.

For this week's MFT Sketch Challenge I decided I'd ink up this fun, typography based sentiment from the Seasonal Sentiments set.

Here's this week's sketch and as you can see I followed it pretty closely with just an adjustment to the size of the panel that contain the sentiment.  The tiny, gingham check paper is from Graphic 45 (Country French) and the solids, which are great for projects with a natural or rustic feel, are from the Kraft Core Collection (Tim Holtz). The scalloped border is actually created from the scalloped rectangle in the Blueprints 1 Dies set and is two parts carefully pieced together.

Hope that you're among those enjoying a long holiday weekend and savoring the last couple weeks of summer after all Christmas will be here before you know it! :)

Happy Crafting!
