Merry Christmas

Hello early birds!!
So how was your weekend? 
Mine?!? I spent Sunday visiting with my girlfriend from high school and my goddaughter. 
She is 7 months now and is cute as a button.  I have to post a picture of her, but I want to get mamas permission first!  *wink*

While I wait for an answer, let's move on to today's reason.
We have a new weekly challenge for you over at SweetStamps and a monthly challenge that just went up on Saturday.  If you missed that post, click HERE.
This weeks challenge is a sketch and I LOVE a good sketch.
Here is what I created for this weeks challenge:
I love this card and I know just the person to send it to!! :)
The sentiment is one one piece, but I cut it so that I can fit it onto the the oval die cut.  I use to be afraid to cut my stamps,, it's no big deal. LOL  The paper is from MME Lost & Found Christmas, that my blogging buddy Jen sent me.  I love these papers and I am saving the scraps too!

So I know that Christmas is quickly approaching, but I hope you still find to to get crafty and join us this week.  we would love to see what you create using the sketch.
