MM #126 and Freshly Made Sketches #154

IMG_6410


Happy Friday!

I have a card to share today for this week's Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge using the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch.  The challenge this week is to make the sentiment the star of the card. Easy to do with the new Tis The Season stamps from Waltzingmouse! The most gorgeous font for Christmas Sentiments. The patterned paper is Merry & Bright from Carta Bella.

I am off to the University Fair in downtown Toronto this morning with Brooklyn. This kicks off what is going to be a flurry of activity over the next couple of months getting her applications in.  She has narrowed it down to five schools--LOL! Hopefully today will help her zone in to her top three. After that I am heading up north for a girls weekend with some friends. What are your plans for the weekend?
