Sweet Sunday Sketch : Spread Your Wings & Fly

Inspired to use the Sweet Sunday Sketch 148 as the layout for a little congratulations creation (my friend just got a promotion), I pulled out some of my favorite retired designer series paper and whipped up this card for her.

This was the first time I'd ever inked up tis butterfly. How did that even happen?! I'd used the smaller one, but apparently not the larger one. Bizarre!

This last week has been a little crazy around our place, as I'm sure it has been for many others. Swillsey and I did some Santa's Anonymous deliveries on Saturday last weekend and then wrapped gifts for donations to the Youth Emergency Shelter Society on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Add in a Cyclefit class on Wednesday to rock my world and it's been a great, busy, but rewarding week. Even with the 'wrapping Nazi' that we worked for. We did determine, however, that we're going to have our own "Rapping Wrappers" evening next year where we'll wrap the gifts for each other while listening to some good rap tunes. Might even put it out there for our friends & family - we'll wrap for a donation to YESS (but then we don't have to deal with cranky little elves!)
I do, however, know that Chelsey unwrapped one of her gifts, so I'll share that soon. Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a wonderfully healthy, happy and crafty New Year!


  1. what a great sentiment for a promotion!! I 'm keeping that in the old file system! Had to laugh at the wrapping's like "get over yourself, it's Christmas!"

  2. Wrapping Nazi - love it LOL :) Love the sentiment for the congrats. I'm sure she will love it. Way to flash the Verve.

  3. Super cute card! Love that cheerful paper and how great to celebrate the season with some giving :). What a great wrapping story!

  4. Such a pretty card! Lovely colors and such a cheery presentation! ADORABLE!
