December SFYTT + SCS!

Happy, happy December 1st. It's really here! Oh boy :) (I wonder how many of today's blog posts will include some variation of "I can't believe it's December" or "where has the year gone?" Trite, but oh-so true!)

It's also the first Saturday of the month, and therefore time to reveal the newest Sketch For You To Try:

This month we're sponsored by Splitcoast Stampers, which will be donating a one-year fan club membership to the Grand Prize Winner. The Grand Prize Winner will be drawn and announced on Christmas Day from the sketch participants who complete all twelve sketches of the year. If you're in the running, good luck!

For more info on the grand prize drawing, along with a big announcement, visit the amazing creative genius behind SFYTT, Jen del Muro.

My card features, yet again, the adorable Homemade for the Holidays stamp set by the Cat's Pajamas and the companion Man CutUps die. This time, my sweet gingerbread man is die-cut from some burlap and layered over a crochet doily. The sentiment is held in place with a Tim Holtz memo pin. The papers are from the City Sidewalks line by Pink Paislee.

Here are links to the fabulous team:

I understand this is off topic nevertheless I simply had to ask.

Hi Amy! I was just stopping by while looking for a die you've used in the past. It's a lowercase "i" with a heart and lowercase "u". I thought it was MFT, but can't find it on their site. Anyway, I love your adorable burlap gingerbread man and card!! Too cute!
