Burlap Holiday Kitty

It's time for a Tuesday sketch with the Skipping Stones Design team!  I missed last week thanks to the ickies that took over my house - thank goodness this week my toddler and I are finally on the mend; it's my poor six year old's turn now :(  This is our first sketch for December, and we have a fantastic sketch artist this month...Jen Del Muro!  This month the whole team gets to play with some fabulous products from Canvas Corp.  They sent us a very generous goodie bag full of papers, embellishments, and other cool ephemera. 

For today's card, I used three different papers from the Canvas Corp holiday line.  I swapped the rectangular panel on the sketch for a circle, and used the cool burlap minis to stamp my image on.  I inked up my Holiday Cats set to make a fun Christmas card. 

I actually remembered to line and stamp the inside of my card, too.  Usually I forget, and then when it's time to mail the card I'm in a rush.  So yay for me!!

Be sure to stop by the Skipping Stones Design blog to see the sketch, and find out how you could win a free stamp set for playing along with us.  And check out each of my teammates' blogs as well as out special guests this month:
