Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #28


There's a fun sketch challenge over at the S&S blog this week, so I made my 2nd Christmas card using that sketch. (YAY ME!) LOL I pulled out my bin of Christmas papers and dug through the scraps to find these pieces, so I'm sorry I don't know who made them. The stamped image was sent to me by Heidi and it's called Callie Christmas Kitty by High Hopes Stamps. I colored it with markers and added some glaze pen details on the ornaments and lights. Surprise, surprise........I used the SU! square lattice embossing folder again! LOL I punched a piece of real red card stock with the SU scalloped border punch and put the embossed scrap on top of that. The tiny tag and sentiment (with the string of lights) are from a G Studio stamp set and that's a tiny brad on the tag.
I hope your Monday is a good one so far! See you soon :)

Sorry it has been so long since I have visited...my computer and blogger have been down...Your last 4 or 5 posts are just beautiful...Love, love the tiger cards...gotta go back and see where you got that image...I am a huge Auburn fan and the tiger is their main guy.
