2 for one

Hey all Good Friday Morning to you all!
A Quick post this morning I wanted to catch 52 Christmas cards Challenge this Morning
I had a very busy day yesterday as I was cooking and baking, bread, bagels, rolls for the next few days and also Focaccia and Spinach and ricotta for dinner last night... then catching up on emails and sponsor stuff for a couple of my DT challenges... Anyway I decided to take a break for an hour and have a blog hop! well I saw 52CCT and loved the C&S sketch... while thinking about what I could make for a card for their Sketch I also was thinking about Shrink Plastic and the Tree Stamp I bought a week or so ago... Arrrrrr that's it! I will have a play with shrink and the sketch, and some resist stamping and distressing too, using black soot!
and finished with some stickles.
Here is the result... Using the 52CC sketch

Now being me I mostly stamp 2 in case one does not work out so good but this time they both stamped and shrank great so here is another card Not using the Sketch..

The Challenge I'm joining is with are:
52 Christmas cards - Sketch - First card
Paper Crafting Journey - Black & one other- Black and Silver – both
Scrapbook Sisters - off-center - First cardStampavie and More - monochrome – Both
Whimsy Inspiration - add dimension.
Craft Room Challenge - Emboss it
