 a Very Happy and Peaceful Christmas

We hope you'll come back soon to show us what you've made, There's an extra week on the Linky for this sketch - it will be open till Tuesday January 8th, so plenty of time to get crafty with this one

December Sketch: Hanging on the Line

Welcome to The Sketch File and our brand new December Sketch.
What will you "hang" on the line that goes across/down the LO?   Fairy Lights, Baubles for Christmas?  Or maybe it'll be a washing line filled with baby clothes.....or bunting decorating a festive LO
We don't mind what your project is - you can share a LO, card, ATC - anything really - we just hope you'll be inspired to get creative and that you'll come back and add your link so we can see what you've used our sketch to make.

Hello and welcome to the fist of our updates for November.
This week we're very happy to introduce you to Brenda, who is working with us for a while and has made a fabulous bunch of cards using the November sketch.  We're sharing some here today, but not all ;)
It's a;ways good to see how different people interpret the sketches, and how they can be adapted to suit the way we work - it all adds to the inspiration, doesn't it?  We hope you'll enjoy seeing what Brenda has made - and that you'll be inspired to join in and then share what you've made via the Inlinkx gadget below.
Anything goes here, so feel free to twist, shrink, or supersize the LO and use it to make any crafty project you fancy.

November; Hang OUt the Banner

Hi there

Thanks so much to those who joined in and used our sketch last month, it was lovely to see how you used it to make such fab creations.  Just because the InLinkz gadget has now closed on that sketch doesn't mean you can't still use it - and if you do we'd love to see more of your projects.  Just leave a comment and a link on one of that sketch's posts and we'll be over to see what you've made.

Now it's on to November's sketch, we hope you'll like it and find it useful in whatever crafting you do
Jackie has made this adorable Baby Card with it's cute row of baby things all hanging on that beautiful baby-feet ribbon!

Two "same stash" cards from Kathy, the second made mainly with scraps from the first
