This is week 4 of the design team call at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This weeks sketch is so much fun and I can see myself using this one over and over again.

Please take a minute and pop over to see the challenge 

I've used one of the images from Polkadoodles Octavia Frosted Winter collection. I love this little hedgehog. As you have seen on my previous posts I really enjoy creating Christmas Cards all year long. It helps reduce that stress for me. I colored the image with copics, spellbinder shape to cut it out. Some snowflake ribbon, shimmer shapes and a Tim Holtz metal token, some random flowers sprayed with distress spray and then added some dk blue inka gold.

I would also like to add this to the Digi Choosday Crafting Challenge #7 Animals or Insects.
And here's a copy of the sketch I used.

Tim Holtz Crazy Cats

Ladies and Gents, I'm so excited to share my very first card using Tim Holtz Crazy Cats. I've been drooling over these since I saw a sneak peek online during CHA2016. I pre-ordered them as soon as I could and they arrived in the mailbox today.

I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches 224and knew it was perfect to use. I hope you love these crazy cats as much as I do, I'm 100% sure you will be seeing lots of them on my blog in the future. I would also like to enter this card into One Crazy Stamper's monthly challenge of anything goes.
