SSW 208: Make it Crafty

Look everyone ... this is me, being organized and making Christmas cards early!  It's only May too!  You MIGHT actually get a handmade card from me this year!

It's Wednesday and time for another challenge from the crew over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!  This week our resident sketch artist, Sally, is asking us to work with circles.

Our sponsor is Zoe from Make it Crafty.  I chose this little guy, Gingerbread Dance.  I just couldn't resist his soft-shoe dancing.  He kind of reminded me of one of my FAVORITE Christmas movies, Holiday Inn with Bing Crosby.

Our winner gets a $15 gift certificate to the Make it Crafty store!

Don't forget you can't win, if you don't comment on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog.


  1. Sweeeet gingerbread image. He's stylin! :) I am liking that sketch too. May have to give it a try. Great job getting ahead on the Christmas cards too! I need to do that.

  2. Joanna, your card is sooo cute. I love how your gingerbread man feels like he is dancing off the card. I love that you have cut him out and popped. The papers are perfect. Have a great week.
    Hugs, Nancy

  3. Very cool... I can hear his music!

  4. Joanna, it is a darling card, I love this sketch and will be playing along if I can find time. I love the image, love the colors and love what you did with this image. So cute!!

  5. Hi Joanna this card really makes me smile, I do love it and I didn't even look at it as a Christmas card it's just so much fun. Love the striped paper very cute. Well with the wording Joy that should have given me a clue LOL . Love your card and we were so lucky as there were so many wonderful images to choose from we were spoilt for choice. Take care and have a great week.

  6. VERY cute! Amazing given you just got home...

  7. What a fun Holiday card! I'm already stressing about having zero made since half the year is almost over. I want some gingerbread cookies now - yum!

    Thanks so much for your comment about my "cherry on top" card, but I totally messed up and used the wrong sponsor! Anyway, I quickly made a new card last night and it's posted now, yikes what a day I had yesterday!

    Also, I live at 21st Ave and Camelback in Phoenix, so your sister is VERY close by! It would be fun the next time you are in town to get together.

    Have a great week!
    Peace & Luv,

  8. You're so funny about the holiday cards! I hear ya though. Love your image and fun bright colors. Perfect for wishing someone a happy holiday!


  9. Very organised Joanna. I will no doubt be panicking the week before Christmas about my cards, as usual.

    I adore your bright stripes and think your image goes perfectly.

    Hope you have a good week.
