It's all about "Hats" this week at Sassy Cheryl's!!

Happy Tuesday, my lovelies!! It's time for another fun challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog!! And  I have a "holly jolly" card to share with you! hehe!! Our very talented DT sister, Miz Jackie, is our "hostess with the mostess" this week . . . and she'd like to see lots and lots of  . . .


That's right . . . hats!! Well . . . as luck would have it, so many of my fave Sassy Cheryl images are wearing hats!! My bigger challenge was to decide which one/ones to use for this week's project!! So, here's my card . . . what'cha think?

Once again, I've used my fave Maddie and Max! This image is called "Good Company" and you can find it right HERE in Sassy Cheryl's online store! Here's another angle . . . 

So . . . here's the deal . . . I decided that Maddie would be reading a Christmas book to Max . . . while Max sits back with his feet up, sipping on a hot cocoa . . . with those teensy weensy marshmallows!! Here's a peek from the other side . . .
