Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #112

Can you believe it's Wednesday already?  Where has the week gone!  Because Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day are over in Canada, we seem to be fast forwarding to Christmas as if it's next week!  I feel bombarded with songs and commercials and decorations and it feels like it was just October....what happened?  I guess I'll have to get my act together and get my shopping done and finalize some Christmas cards!

We have a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches today and I have the absolute privilege of being this week's Hostess!  I love being part of this great team and truly appreciate the support and encouragement this great group of ladies gives!
Of course because I've got Christmas on the brain, I decided to go with a Christmas card!  Go figure!  I wanted to do traditional red and white!  I love's got to be my favourite colour (though if you asked my son Jacob he would say pink)!

You can't tell in this picture but the snowflakes have Dazzling Diamonds on them to give them a bit of glitter!  I should have re-taken the picture I suppose!

Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
DSP:  Season of Style
Stamps: A Round Array, Mixed Medley
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Versamark
Other: Stripes Textured Embossing Folder, Scalloped circle punches, circle punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Heat and Stick Powder, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Please head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog!  You won't be disappointed when you see the cards the Design Team has created for you!

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a fabulous day!
