First Time Creating with Connie and Mary

Really, it's just the first time I finished on time!  I used the great sketch this week at Create with Connie and Mary Challenge.

I skipped the greeting, but other than that I stayed pretty true to the sketch.  Also, I used a hobby blade to cut out the cross shape out of a single sheet of paper, but I'm going to nix that idea for the duplicates I make for my Christmas card stash.  Too fussy!  :-)

And just because I hate having cards that aren't posted to my blog (now that I have one that is all of a few months old!), a card from an old Connie and Mary sketch challenge that wasn't done in time to enter:

Funny thing, when I was making this second one, I was pulling the sketch from memory, and it didn't have the ribbon, and I thought, you know what this needs?  A banner here.  Then I saw the sketch again, and sure enough, there was a banner there!  I guess those gals Connie and Mary know what they're doing!  :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
