Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #96

Today is the second card sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap this month. Next month we will be celebrating our 5th anniversary with tons of card and layout sketches for you to be inspired by.
For my card I turned the sketch on it's side. I they used a framelits die from Stephanie Barnard. I made the front embellishment a shaker giving this card a fun addition.
This card is designed to sit up. This was a fun die to play with I have more cards in the works!

Sketch N Scrap Layout Challenge #121

We are midway into our sketch reveals at Sketch-N-Scrap for January and I have a layout sketch that I designed for you all to use.
I used this layout for the kids picture with Santa. We had an interesting visit with Santa this year. He had an app on his phone that read kids fingerprints to see if they were naughty or nice. Now you would assume all kids would be on the nice list right? Yeah, no. Out of my three children I have one extremely emotional one. That one happened to be the one that was randomly chosen by the app to be on the naughty list. Of course there were tears and I've never seen Santa look so sheepish. After apologizes, Santa was able to "reexamine" his fingerprint and he was on the nice list after all. Whew.
Items I used in this layout:
Simple Stories • 25 Days of Christmas • Believe
Simple Stories • 25 Days of Christmas • Journal Cards
Card Stock • White
Card Stock • Cream
Ranger • Distress Ink • Walnut Stain
Ranger • Distress Ink • Peeled Paint
Ranger • Distress Ink • Crushed Olive
Ranger • Distress Ink • Mowed Lawn

Today I have the first card sketch of the year from Sketch-N-Scrap. Check out what the other design team members came up with and link your take on the sketch to the SNS blog for a chance to win.
For my card, I used a base from Jillibean Soup to make a shaker card. These are fun and make shaker cards so easy. They have many different shapes but I find the circle can be used many different ways.
