Wow….the last Freshly Made Sketches challenge of the year. Can you believe it?? I know, it snuck up on me too. Good thing my friend the amazing and talented Jen Mitchell created one that is good for last minute holiday cards or ready for your post holiday crafting. Hopefully with some new toys from Santa!!!
I could not do another Christmas card. Done, complete, no more! But I did need a birthday card for a special family member whose birthday is near the holidays. So the only rule was nothing at all holiday-like! Out came Pop of Pink DSP and this adorable little kitty from Newton’s Nook Designs. The stamp set is Newton’s Day Dream. And oh, this fellow is adorable! I colored him with my Zig Clean Color Markers to look like this certain someone’s kitty and I love how he turned out! I have to say that taking a short break from holiday madness to create this was EXACTLY what I needed!
Today I’m off for a trip so if you are going through Chicago O’Hare (or other parts of the country) keep an eye out for me. And please remember to pack your patience at the airport. This is a crazy time of year for us all. Many travelers are super stressed and, I promise, we really really want to get you (and us) there on time….safely!
I have some fun news coming up in the next few days that I look forward to sharing with you. But you can expect that I’ll be away a bit more over the next couple of weeks. I am off after Friday (like winning the lottery for an airline pilot) but will be spending time with family. I hope to fit in some bonus stamping too!
The team has such fun inspiration for you this week! It is sure to get you on your way to creating. Plus, this sketch is open until Jan. 2 so that the team can take a bit of a holiday too. Stop in to visit us though…we’ll see you in the gallery!!
