Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #267

Happy Wednesday!  Can you believe how fast Christmas is coming?!  We are now blanketed in white here in Southern Ontario.  I am going to say that I'm not a big fan of the snow.  I know that coming from a Canadian that may sound strange but honestly, snow isn't my favourite thing.  Our new kitten however seems to thoroughly enjoy the snow. Great.  Just what I need!  A cat who wants to go outside and play in the snow all winter!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches! Our hostess this week if the amazing Jen Timko!  Did you see Jen's Christmas wreath cards the other day?  They're just beautiful. Head over to her blog to check them out!
 I couldn't bear to make another Christmas cards so birthday it is!  I pulled out my Amazing Birthday stamp set and decided that this image would work the best.  I kinda wanted to add some colour so decided to do some crazy cutting rather than using markers to colour.  I don't colour well!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Amazing Birthday
Ink: Stazon Black, Perfect Plum, Tempting Turquoise, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder
Other: Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the fabulous cares the design team has created for you!

Have a fabulous day!
