Day four of class the theme is, one layer cards.  I flunk out on card number one.  The teacher, Jennifer McGuire, cheated by putting a teeny tiny heart on the inside of her card so I cheated BIG!  LOL

I did the partial die cutting which is a lesson I really need to work on  therefore I get a c+ for effort.  I had already colored in my Ugly Sweater so I did just glue that over the spot that I had partially die cut.  Then on the inside Jennifer made a stencil and did some distress inking.  Here was my problem.  She was using a cute little animal that really looked good with a sky background.  No matter what color I put behind my sweater... not a good look.   I used the larger die and black card stock and glued it to the inside.  The sentiment comes from the SSS Ugly Sweater set and the Join Us comes from a Raisin Boat set and the little poinsetta stamp is also from the Ugly Sweater set.  Wink of Stella and a corner chomper and I was done.

Confession.... I love Christmas Sweaters! 

Update on my son.. his surgery went well and he is recovering nicely.  Thank you for your prayers.


  1. Your card still looks great, even if you cheated a little LOL!

  2. You have done a fabulous job on these lessons! Do not be so hard on yourself...the ugly sweater looks awesome with the black circle die background. Glad to hear that your son is recovering and improving from the surgery!

  3. Very cute! And I'm glad to hear your son is doing well.
