Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #204

Happy Wednesday!  I trust your week is going well!  Can you believe we are halfway through September already?  Honestly, where is the time going?  My oldest asked me today how many more days until Christmas!  I couldn't believe it!  Christmas?  It's just over three months away.  I guess I should get going on my cards!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week courtesy of the amazing Jennifer Timko!  Our dear Jennifer celebrated a very special birthday on Tuesday!  If you haven't checked out her blog and her beautiful cards, head over there and do it and give her a little birthday love!!!

Our sketch this week is a great one!  I must say that I had to sit and think about this one for a while.  I had a few ideas and tried some different things before I finally decided on a design.  I figured I had better get some Christmas cards at least started.  I used some of the fun new products from the Stampin' Up Holiday Catalogue which was super fun!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Silver
Stamps: Holly Jolly Greetings
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Big Rhinestones, Christmas Greetings Thinlits, Stitched Rectangles (Lil' Inkers), Stitched Tags (Lil' Inkers)

Thanks for stopping in today!  I really appreciate your visit!
I hope you'll head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the fabulous cards the Design Team has created for you!  You will not be disappointed!

Have a wonderful day!
