Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #317

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're enjoying your week and your Christmas preparations are going well!  We had a slight Christmas decoration faux pas yesterday when my cat (Pepsi) decided that walking across our fire place mantle and stopping to play with the pine cones and garland would be a good idea.  Not so much.  Garland, poinsettias (fakes one of course), lights and pine cones all ended up on the floor.  Pepsi just sat up on the mantle looking at what she'd done like she was sweet and innocent!  The boys of course just laughed!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the incredibly talented Jen Mitchell!  Jen creates amazing cards that always blow my mind.  I think she's the queen of clean cards! I love what she can do with paper!

The sketch is very versatile this week!  I do love the Merry Little Christmas DSP from SU and had to use it again for this card!  The stitched felt embellishments were too cute, how could I not throw one on!!!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red, Red Glimmer
DSP: Merry Little Christmas
Stamps: Carols of Christmas
Ink: Stazon
Other: Stitched Felt Embellishments, Double Stitched Squares (Lil Inkers), Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see what the Design Team has cooked up for your viewing pleasure!

Have a fabulous day!



  1. Ah, cats and Christmas decorations. Always "entertaining"!!! ;-) Love this card. That big, bold sentiment is just perfect for the sketch.

  2. Oh, I love this sentiment! How did I not notice it in the catalog? And it really sparkles against that fab dsp background. Beautiful card, Jen!

  3. Oh those kitty cats! Good thing they are cute! Like this card.....sweet as can be for the holidays!

  4. I love how this card appears to be blinking! What a fabulous Christmas card. And as my kitties have gotten older I have gradually added Christmas decorations back into the house. The older they get the less they seem inclined to play with them. Patience, my friend! :)

  5. Your black and white with just a touch of red and green looks very striking!

  6. That sentiment is wonderful! I love how you enhanced it with the starry background - a pop of glitter - and just a sprig of holly. Perfect!

  7. I'm so sorry I'm late visiting to let you know how gorgeous this card is! Beautiful and elegant and striking - which seems to be your signature. Loving all your cards, Jen!
